Corte Madera Chiropractor Talks Quality vs. Shoddy Care

Though it's happened hundreds of times, I am still amazed when people come off thinking that a chiropractor is a chiropractor, an adjustment is an adjustment. So they make their decision by looking for the cheapest guy, or, "even better," for the guy who has such low clinical and moral standards that "he takes my insurance."

Please understand that insurance is a medical invention, designed to cover medical services. Contrary to what some people think (sadly, including some chiropractors), Chiropractic is NOT Medicine. It is not part of Medicine. It is not even "alternative medicine." Chiropractic is totally separate and distinct from Medicine. Medicine is the diagnosis and treatment of disease, healing from Outside-in. Chiropractic is the detection, analysis and correction of Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), allowing your body to heal and to express itself at a higher level, from Above-down, Inside-out. DIFFERENT.

As I said, insurance is designed for medical services. When chiropractors submit their bills to your insurance, they must "diagnose and treat" in order to get paid. They are forcing the round peg into the square hole. (Or is it the other way around?) If they don't know any better, well, they have no grasp on what Chiropractic is. If that is so, why would you want a chiropractor with no grasp on what he or she is supposed to serve you with? If they do know, could there be an ethical breach? What do you think? Does this make a difference to you? It should!

The above is about intent... purpose... mission. If you go to a chiropractor whose mission is to "crack you" every which way, without proper analysis (history, exam, X-rays, nerve scans), to whatever number of visits your insurance is paying for, you will be sorry. You will join the ranks of those who say "I tried Chiropractic, but it didn't work." NO, YOU DIDN'T! You had a medically perverted excuse for chiropractic, far from the real thing.

If you have paid out-of-pocket for a cheap chiropractor, if you didn't get the QUALITY and QUANTITY of Chiropractic that you needed, whatever you paid, you were ripped off. As I've said before, if you go to a chiropractor "when you need it," that's the same pain relief you can get from a couple of Advil. (Not a recommendation.) Some may get some pain relief from these lesser chiropractors, but no one will get correction of Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Therefore, your body remains in chaos... in poor health, as your strategy for health remains "Oh, I hope nothing shows up on my next doctor visit."

Straight... real chiropractic care means a freeing of your body and mind to express its potential. This is done with the straight chiropractor focused up the Science, Art and Philosophy of Chiropractic. I am here to change lives, and to save lives... nothing less. Chiropractic saved my life. I pass that on, every day, as best as I can!

Anything less is shoddy care. In fact, anything less, in my book, ceases to be Chiropractic. It is more like third-rate physical medicine. Your choice.
