Insurance is designed for short-term relief of short-term recent illness, injury, or disease. Insurance is not designed to improve overall health, to correct problems or, to prevent future health problems.
In order to cut costs, insurance companies, particularly HMOs, now set a limit on how often a Chiropractor can see you in his or her office. This makes insurance more affordable, but does not make it possible to provide the proper quality or amount of care necessary for you and your family. That is why we have either chosen to not participate in your HMO or we have had to make further accommodations in order to help your family.
The insurance, HMO, relief care chiropractors determine your length of care and amount of treatment by your symptoms, your insurance company, and/or how often he is allowed to see you. While this may seem like a benefit since it will reduce your cost and lower your treatment time, you are actually wasting your time and money. You may get some temporary relief, but your spine and Central Nerve System are left uncorrected and your health is no better off than when you started your care.
In fact your condition may be worse. The Central Nerve System totally controls all functions and healing. Research shows, if your spine and Central Nerve System are left in their improper position, they will, continue to degenerate silently and allow organs to malfunction and become diseased. But with relief care, you will not even know this is occurring because the signs and symptoms are gone!
"The body has an innate ability to heal itself. Western doctors are frozen in a disease-oriented mode, curing disease with drugs, surgery (or adjustments) rather than on prevention and stimulation of the body's natural healing power. Most treatments just prevent disease from expressing itself symptomatically. Symptoms disappear, but the disease actually gets progressively worse. "
