Chiropractic leads to lower costs in workers' compensation claims?

Color us skeptical, but new research suggests that chiropractic care may, indeed, lead to lower costs in some types of workers’ compensation claims. 

The Workers’ Compensation Research Institute (WCRI) announced last month the release of its new study titled Chiropractic Care for Workers with Low Back Pain, which considered data from 28 states, including Texas.  The results may be surprising to some. Among the study’s key findings were that claims with care provided exclusively by chiropractors were associated with lower costs and shorter duration of temporary disability than a set of claims with similar characteristics where care was exclusively provided by non-chiropractic providers.

More cocktail party trivia: According to its website, the WCRI is an independent, not-for-profit research organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Organized in 1983, the Institute does not take positions on the issues it researches; rather, it provides information obtained through studies and data collection efforts which conform to recognized scientific methods. Objectivity is further insured through rigorous, unbiased peer review procedures.
