Medicare Chiropractor – what it means to find the right one
Growing up in a small farm towns, our doctors learned several morals and valuable life lessons. One of these lessons being always respect your elders. Now being a primary care practitioners, we carry that same moral into our health center. Seniors are the ones to thank for building our amazing country, and their work should be appreciated. At the age of 65, all seniors qualify for Medicare health insurance, a system they having been paying taxes into their entire working life. At Abundant Life Chiropractic, we feel it is our duty to honor and respect these insurance benefits. We hope you choose us to be your medicare chiropractor.

- What to expect with Medicare
There are some bad vibes out there, stating that medicare is no longer good, or insurance won’t help get you healthy. Well, today, we are going to debunk that. Medicare does cover active chiropractic therapy for acute injuries for 90 consecutive days. Chiropractic therapy falls into the category of the chiropractic adjustment of spinal manipulation. Although they do not cover passive therapies and modalities, medicare does cover the physical adjustment (the most important part of alleviating pain). This is why it is so important that your second step is finding a medicare chiropractor, or an office that physically works with medicare.[list icon=”arrow-circle-right” font_size=”20″ icon_color=”#008000″ text_color=”#000000″ columns=”1″ bottom_margin=”10″]
- Will Medicare cover all my chiropractic expenses?
Medicare with cover all your chiropractic adjustments with the realm of what is deemed medically necessary. Keep in mind all insurances generally have a deductible and co-pay system as well. This means as soon as you meet your deductible, your co-pay comes to life and you just pay your co-pay for medicare covered expenses moving forward. The reason we suggest you find a medicare chiropractor, or a chiropractor familiar with the medicare statutes and regulations, is so that you can use the health care benefits which you have worked hard for.[list icon=”arrow-circle-right” font_size=”20″ icon_color=”#008000″ text_color=”#000000″ columns=”1″ bottom_margin=”10″]
- Is chiropractic safe for older frail individuals?
Potentially the most common question we see in the office, is if chiropractic is safe for individuals with osteoporosis or osteopenia. The answer is yes. With that being said, it is important to find a physician who is trained in gentle non-invasive adjustments. At Abundant Life Chiropractic, in Chanhassen, our doctors use torque release technique, a state of the art technique that involves no popping, twisting or cracking of the spine. Everything is done very specifically with an instrument. This largely contributes to the Medicare aged population we take care.[list icon=”arrow-circle-right” font_size=”20″ icon_color=”#008000″ text_color=”#000000″ columns=”1″ bottom_margin=”10″]
