When it comes to healthy lifestyle behaviors, regular bodywork is right up there with good diet and exercise. And in the realm of bodywork, nothing beats chiropractic for keeping people healthy and full functioning throughout their lifetime.
According to a 2000 wellness study,
Chiropractic patients ages 65 and older who were under chiropractic care for five or more years experienced 50 percent fewer medical provider visits than their comparable peers and spent only 31 percent of the national average for health care services. The health habits of patients receiving maintenance care were better overall than the general population, including decreased use of cigarettes and decreased use of prescription drugs.
I hope Obamacare bureaucrats are paying attention.
