How Big is the Market for Chiropractic Services?
No matter where you are in the United States, an AlignLife clinic can be a successful and valued community resource
Health care, including chiropractic care, in the United States is a multibillion-dollar business. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, in 2015 alone we spent $3.2 trillion, up 5.8% from the previous year. That’s almost $10,000 per person.
Costs are sky-high, yet outcomes are less than optimal. About 160 million Americans are overweight or obese, according to Healthdata.org. And it’s not a problem limited to adults: almost 30% of boys and girls under the age of 20 are either obese or overweight, up from 19% in 1980.
Many of these people, as well as those who are in good physical shape and want to ensure that their health remains optimal, are turning to chiropractic care. That’s why the number of chiropractors is predicted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to grow by 12% from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.
Why consumers love chiropractic care
“The health care landscape is changing, and more and more Americans are looking for a natural approach,” says Dr. Cristina Esposito. “They want a drug-free, holistic approach to their health care. AlignLife is positioned to capitalize on that change, because we offer a well-rounded approach to chiropractic care that also includes a focus on diet, nutrition, exercise and overall stress management.”
That means an AlignLife chiropractic clinic can treat the whole family, and not just for musculoskeletal issues or pain.
“We see people come in for common symptoms such as fatigue or depression, and we are able to engage them in an ongoing, holistic program that looks at their whole being: physical, mental and emotional,” Dr. Cristina Esposito says. “An AlignLife chiropractor can help people with so many chronic conditions, and so is able to build a growing, thriving business.”
