Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka recognizes that price is a concern when it comes to your choice of chiropractic care. Our staff at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is most knowledgeable and is here to walk you through your particular situation.
Please understand that although not every chiropractic treatment technique has gone to the degree to develop and publish its algorithm of decision-making - its "standard of care" - a specific algorithm of decision-making is published regarding application of Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression, our highlighted chiropractic technique of choice. This accepted and publicized protocol asks for 3 to 6 visits per week as a standard for care of a radicular pain patient (one who has severe pain shooting down the leg or arm) and 2 to 3 visits per week for a non-radicular patient (one whose pain is found only in the back or neck).
If your chiropractic insurance coverage includes spinal manipulation, it will most likely cover Cox Technic. The same applies for coverage of ancillary care items (like hot/cold therapy, electrical stimulation, nutrition, support belts). Check with your insurance plan or ask our staff to help you find out.
Realize that insurance coverage does not control what is required to manage your spinal pain - leg pain, arm pain, neck pain or low back pain. You and the staff at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka must determine what chiropractic care is right to alleviate your symptom and control the pain. If your insurance says it will only pay for 12 visits and your spinal condition demands that you be seen daily or a couple times a week until your pain is alleviated, you will have to determine what is best for your health.
Understand that Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka wants to work with you and your insurance/financial situation to the advantage of your health and pain-free quality of life. Just ask.
