New Study: Chiropractic + PT = Less Efficient

Mechanicsville Virginia Chiropractor – I was actually a bit stunned when I read this article.  For some time many studies want to say chiropractic care is supported well by physiotherapy.  And honestly that just seems common sense-ical.  So when I read this article I was intrigued.  It  concludes with the following statement:

“While it seems intuitive that adding physiotherapy-led exercise to Chiropractic care should increase its efficacy, it actually declined to 0.651 while raising overall cost by another $76 to $2507, resulting in an incremental cost effectiveness ratio of $4591.”

So it is more about the financial efficiency of care.  In other words it was looking at what would be more cost effective.  This is very important in this day and age.  Particularly with what the Supreme Court just did to the healthcare landscape.  Anyway, chiropractors and their patients should give a little “woohoo” when information like this affirms their choice in healthcare options.  Good job everyone!
