Took husband to a chiropractor today

Monday, February 25, 2013

All I can say is WOW!!!! EX__PEN___SIVE!!! Holy Cow!!! $289. just for the Dr. to touch his back and make him yell in pain and take 2 e-rays!! That's it!! Nothing else!! The Dr. will look at the e-rays tonight so he knows what kind of work to do for him and then we go back tomorrow. Did you know that medicare doesn't pay for this kind of treatment, even if it's needed? They pay for manipulations only. I've never been to a chiropractor, so I don't know what they do in the office. Looks like we won't be making a habit of seeing this Dr.

    Even though I've never been to a chiropractor myself, my husband has been and it made all the difference. So, I believe a good chiropractor is very able to help/heal. I hope the next visit makes a huge impact.

    wow. We don't charge that much to our Medicare patients. Medicare really doesn't pay much for Chiropractic care. At least where I work you will get an adjustment the same day not come back for another visit.

    I hope that your husband finds some relief!

    I hear you! I tried acupuncture for my migraines and several hundred dollars later all I had to show for it was a smaller bank account and the migraines. Hopefully this doctor will be able to help your husband in only a couple of visits.
