Why hurt?

Leave a comment

According to a study published July 20, 2015 in the American Journal of Managed Care, most patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain use acupuncture or chiropractic care to help control their symptoms. A substantial percentage of this utilization, however, is not captured by the electronic medical record because they pay out of their own pocket and don’t tell their ‘real’ doctor that they use alternative care.
. . . A personal thought – if more people told their medical professional that their pain was helped by chiropractic and/or acupuncture, would these services become mainstream instead of alternative?  And, if so, would more insurance companies cover them?
