Have you ever considered using a chiropractor for anything other than a headache, sore back or a disc herniation? There have been a number of studies showing that using a chiropractor as your primary care physician can save you a significant amount of money. With today's high deductible plans most health care is now not paid for by insurance companies but rather by the patient.
Chiropractors are trained in the diagnosis of health problems by using blood work, MRI’s, CT and other diagnostic tools. Because of this training many people are using an alternative and more natural approach to health care by choosing chiropractors as their primary care family doctor.
