Curious about chiropractic? You’re probably wondering…

But—as with most questions involving doctors and insurance plans—the answer isn’t always cut-and-dry.

Fortunately, there are many occasions when your insurance does offer coverage for chiropractic services. Let’s dig a little deeper to see when you may or may not be covered.

Holistic care is a term that most people have heard of but probably don’t have a great understanding of what exactly it is. So what is holistic care?

Many people think of holistic care as a type of pseudo-medicine. Maybe even a rejection of modern medicine.

Holistic care is neither of those things.

At its core, holistic care is about treating all aspects of the individual, not just the parts that are hurting or injured. Those who practice holistic care believe that only by focusing on and healing all aspects of an individual—their body, mind, and soul—can you truly be happy and healthy.

How does a holistic approach work in the practice of chiropractic care? Let’s take a look.
