What happens during a consultation?
“An initial consultation with a chiropractor consists of a comprehensive history and a full examination including neurological, orthopaedic and chiropractic testing. The purpose of this exam is to find out whether or not you have nerve interference (subluxations) that is interfering with your body’s ability to adapt, repair and regenerate. If you have nerve interference then your chiropractor will be able to help, if not then they will do everything in their power to refer you to someone who can.”
Are my visits covered by insurance?
“Chiropractic is technically considered a form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). As a result, coverage for chiropractic care varies as much as seasonal fashion trends. For example, Medicare Part B (medical insurance) pays for basic chiropractic care, or manipulation of the spine and nervous system. However, it will not cover your initial physical exam, X-rays, physical therapy, orthopedic devices, vitamins and supplements, and evaluation services. So before you schedule a date with a chiropractor, call your insurance provider or invest in a set of quality magnifying glasses to examine the fine print of your plan to figure out what type of chiropractic care (if any) is covered.”
