Chiropractic Fees and the Insurance Industry
Theres no question that when insurance equality came to the chiropractic profession in the late 1970s, it had a dramatic effect on the fees charged by chiropractors.
While the fees charged by chiropractors are usually significantly lower than fees charged by traditional medical practitioners, the objectives of these two professions are considerably different:
Medicine Relieve symptoms by using drugs that enter the bloodstream and either speed up bodily functions or slow down bodily functions.
Chiropractic Revive the ability to self heal by removing interferences to the nervous system, usually along the spine, to allow the body to function as designed.
Regardless of the fees that are charged, which strategy makes the most sense to you?
