Healthcare costs are in the billions.  Chiropractors can reduce healthcare costs by striving to provide the right treatment and diagnosis for patients with spine and spine related problems the first time.  Nearly half of BC’s provincial government budget is allocated for health care, yet we still struggle to meet all of our needs.  Approximately one third of all office visits to a medical doctor are for spine and spine related problems.  It’s a huge piece of the pie that can be more effectively managed by chiropractic doctors.  Chiropractic doctors strive to provide the right treatment and diagnosis for patients with spine problems.  Studies show that patients under chiropractic care return to work faster which means less treatment and more time as a productive employee.
