Vancouver Disc Centers understands that cost is a worry to some when it comes to your choice of chiropractic care. Our staff at Vancouver Disc Centers is highly educated and is here to talk you through your particular circumstance.
Please understand that although not every chiropractic treatment technique has gone so far as 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 featured chiropractic technique of choice. This recognized and published protocol asks for 3 to 6 visits per week as acceptable for care of a radicular pain patient (one who has intense pain extending 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 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 dictate what is required to regulate your spinal pain - leg pain, arm pain, neck pain or low back pain. You and the staff at Vancouver Disc Centers must decide what chiropractic care is right to relieve your condition and manage 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 relieved, you will have to determine what is best for your health.
Know that Vancouver Disc Centers is most willing to work with you and your insurance/financial circumstance to the advantage of your health and pain-free quality of life. Just ask.
