The main reasons people decide to visit the doctor’s office are because they are in pain or because they are sick. Unfortunately, many people do not make their health a priority until it’s too late and they are already injured or ill.

The power of preventative medicine is incredible and important. In fact, focusing on preventative healthcare measures can actually save you money and increase your work productivity. Studies show that by making preventative health care a priority, the economic impact of disease is lessened, and the length and quality of life for people is better!


According to the United States Surgeon General, here are some examples as to why preventative health is financially wise:

  • a 5 percent reduction in the prevalence of hypertension would save $25 billion in just 5 years
  • a 1 percent reduction in weight, blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol risk factors would save between $83-$103 each year in medical costs, per person
  • increasing the use of preventative services to include tobacco cessation screenings, alcohol abuse screenings, and aspirin use to just 90 percent of the recommend levels could save as much as $3.7 billion each year in medical costs
  • in work places with work place wellness programs, individual medical costs are reduced by approximately $3.27 for every dollar spent on the wellness program
  • if we could reduce the average population’s sodium intake from 3,400 mg to 2,300 mg per day, it could save nearly $18 billion in health care costs each year
  • asthma, high blood pressure, smoking, and obesity are responsible for reducing annual productivity per person for an average of $200-440 each year
  • the Milken Institute found that just a modest reduction in avoidable health risk factors could lead to an economic gain of more than $1 trillion for the economy by 2023

Chiropractic as Preventative Health Care

At Pure Health Clinic, located in Howell, Michigan, we know that chiropractic is an incredible, natural, safe, and effective form of preventative health care. Chiropractic looks to identify the cause of your symptoms. Once the cause is identified, chiropractic treats the ailment at its source. Modern medicine only treats the symptoms themselves.

Symptoms are your body’s way of telling you that something isn’t working as it should or that something is wrong. Every symptom has a cause. It is Dr. Chris and Krystal Hohn’s job to identify the cause of the symptoms and then correct it through chiropractic care!

Sometimes the causes are easy to identify. Sitting in a stiff office chair each day is going to cause back pain. Other times, they are far more difficult to identify. Luckily, Drs. Hohn are experts in the field and know how to do just that!

The activities we put our bodies through each day can often create stress on the spine. This stress can lead to subluxations, or misalignments, in the spine. Often, we do not even know these subluxations exist! Subluxations manifest themselves in a variety of ways.

The spine houses the body’s central nervous system, which is responsible for carrying out every single function in the body. When vertebrae are not in alignment, the communication between the nervous system and the body is interrupted. This leads to a variety of symptoms showing up such as:

  • headaches
  • back pain
  • neck pain
  • sports injuries
  • allergies
  • anxiety
  • colic
  • reflux
  • joint pain
  • asthma
  • depression
  • poor posture
  • trouble sleeping
  • and many more!

By utilizing chiropractic, you can safely, naturally, and effectively treat these common ailments at their source! By maintaining your chiropractic care, you empower your body to function as it should. This is an incredible way to utilize preventative health care. In fact, patients who use chiropractic care regularly experience a reduction in health care costs, hospital stays, doctors visits, and more.

Drs. Chris and Krystal Hohn can correct these misalignments in your spine, and have your body functioning as it should in no time. By performing targeted adjustments to the spine and joints, they will realign the spine. This allows your nervous system to function as it should, and your body to heal itself!

Chiropractic Care is About More than Just Your Back
