6 Ways to Reduce the Cost of Chiropractic Care

There’s no getting around it – everything feels expensive right now! While we can’t do much about the underlying economy, we wanted to take this week’s blog as a chance to highlight some of the ways that you can access Chiropractic care for less than you might think!


Investing in chiropractic care

Prioritising your health and well-being through chiropractic care is an investment in yourself – for many, a regular chiropractic adjustment is a good way to avoid costs incurred by time off work, lost business or a need to rely more on childcare. Without question, however, concerns about the cost of these services can deter some individuals from seeking the benefits of chiropractic adjustments – things are hard at the moment and this is a totally understandable reaction! Fortunately, there are some practical strategies which can help to make chiropractic care more affordable without compromising on quality of life, or care.


Explore Health Insurance Coverage

In the UK there’s a common conception that Health insurance is expensive – since the NHS is free anything could be fairly labelled as expensive, but it still might be worth looking into. Many health insurance plans do provide coverage for chiropractic care as part of their benefits and many of our patients come to us through this route – for some people, coverage can be a good investment!

Perhaps more surprisingly, many people who have coverage (often through work) do not realise that their policy will actually cover chiropractic care! Our top tip for those with insurance is therefore to review your policy to check the extent of coverage for chiropractic treatments right now!. If in doubt contact your insurance provider or check the policy documents for details on copayments, deductibles, and any limitations on the number of visits covered.


Payment Plans

At Complete Chiropractic we offer significant discounts on treatments when paid upfront – in fact most chiropractic clinics offer some kind of deal like this, and sometimes the price you’ll see quoted on a website is actually a discounted pre-paid one. At Complete Chiropractic we don’t heavily advertise these discounts because we do not believe in selling treatment plans to people who we aren’t certain we can help! Instead, we discuss treatment options and the most affordable way to achieve your goals at your initial consultation – Just want to get out of pain as cheaply as possible? That’s fine with us! Looking to reduce the cost of longer-term chiropractic care and maintenance? We can help with that too!



The easiest way to reduce the cost of Chiropractic care is, of course, to simply pay less! While we keep our fees as low as possible we do also offer additional reductions for students and children – check the website for the latest prices!


Check adjustment prices

Today it’s fairly standard for Chiropractors to offer good value deals covering an initial consultation and a treatment or two – we do the same at Complete Chiropractic, after all we’d like people to come in and experience Chiropractic! When choosing a chiropractor, you should however look at the price attached to regular adjustments – after all, if you choose to continue Chiropractic treatment (and we hope you will!) that’s the price you’ll actually be paying. At Complete Chiropractic we focus more on keeping our adjustment prices lower to benefit our loyal patients and friends.


Focus on Preventive Care

Finally, while it may seem counterintuitive, investing in preventive chiropractic care can ultimately save you money in the long run. By addressing minor misalignments and concerns early on, you can prevent more significant issues from developing, reducing the need for extensive and costly treatments down the road. This won’t be true for everyone – some people may need a handful of adjustments to overcome a specific issue and then never visit again – however, if you suffer from back pain regularly, or work in a profession which puts you at high risk, one monthly adjustment might work out much cheaper than several each week while you overcome a fresh injury or issue. Again, please do speak to us about this at your consultation – we’ll tailor the whole process to suit your needs, including your budget!


Chiropractic doesn’t need to cost the earth!

For many of us, things are tough at the moment – the cost of living seems like a never-ending strain, but in many cases, this does not mean you need to miss out on the benefits of Chiropractic. By making some smart choices it’s very possible to reduce and manage costs. If you’re interested in trying chiropractic but worried about the cost please do get in touch – we’re truly a clinic that believes in personalised care, and that means helping you to meet your financial needs too.
