Wow, it seems like I just wrote this intro and another month has flown by. It is a very busy, stressful time for many with the end of the school year, graduations, weddings, and summer vacations.
Many of you know I have been working with a health coaching company for the past two years in addition to providing chiropractic care at my clinic. I have recently decided it was time to return to my chiropractic practice on a full time basis. I learned a great deal of information at my other job to help you learn to make lifestyle changes to improve your health and quality of life. It is such a wonderful complement to chiropractic care and I am excited and feel like a new graduate, ready to help as many people as I can.
We are available to provide you with your chiropractic needs M-W-F from 8-6 and Tuesday and Thursday evenings until 8 pm. I am trying to learn social media and have discovered that, according to Google, I was closed on Friday afternoons. Strange, since I was in my clinic during that time.. At any rate, I am learning and trying to enter the 21st century.
Many patients seem to be confused about what their health insurance will cover and often avoid coming in for treatment believing that they don't have coverage. Health insurance pays for treatment related to any kind of condition or injury that occurs other than at work or involving a motor vehicle, requires a short duration of regular care, and provides the patient with pain relief. Once that episode is over, the ongoing care is considered to be maintenance and this care is not covered by your health insurance. For example, we have seen many patients in the past several months who have either injured themselves or aggravated an old injury dealing with the weather-related tasks of snow shoveling/blowing/raking and now with gardening, planting, spring clean up, and mowing. These injuries are covered by your health insurance. Many of our patients choose to follow up with care after their pain has subsided to maintain their pain-free status and to reap the myriad other benefits of a properly aligned spine. This is considered wellness or maintenance care and is not covered by insurance. It very well may be even more important than injury care since it provides and maintains stability to your spine and surrounding tissues, assisting them in working at their peak and often limiting injury in the first place.
I realize this is very confusing. Please don't avoid treatment if you aren't sure. Just give us a call and we can let you know if your need for care is covered or considered maintenance.
So, I have a favor to ask of you. Please take a few minutes to review us on Google, at www.andrewschiromn.com, and on our Andrews Chiropractic Facebook page. Yes, this is that silly social media thing, again.
