Signs of a Scam: Chiropractic Contracts

Chiropractic care gives patients immediate, tangible relief for pain in the neck, back, shoulders, and limbs, as well as improving overall health. What’s the biggest risk when seeing a chiropractor? The contract.

The Dangers of a Chiropractic Contract

A skilled chiropractor can reduce or eliminate a variety of health problems—even ones patients may not realize are connected with the spine, like knee pain or asthma. But some chiropractors use contracts to lock patients into services that may be unnecessary, or even harmful. Signs of a chiropractic scam may include:

  • A contract or advanced payment plan that extends over several months
  • Payment through a third party, whom the patient must pay back in installments
  • Penalties, retroactive cost adjustments, or administration fees for cancelling future services
  • Scare tactics such as talk of degenerative spinal issues, permanent nerve damage, or the life-threatening risks of stopping treatment early

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

A chiropractor uses knowledge of the spine and central nervous system to reduce pain, eliminate discomfort, and keep the spine aligned so that each patient can live a healthier life. But every good chiropractor knows that it’s impossible to anticipate a patient’s needs 50 visits in advance. Every time you visit Chiropractic Center of Kennesaw, our staff will analyze your spine alignment and determine which adjustments you need. We work closely with patients in Kennesaw, Marietta, and metro Atlanta to find the best individual treatment. If Dr. Supnick recommends multiple visits, we’ll set you up on a short-term, visit-to-visit plan. If we feel we cannot improve your condition, we’ll work with you to find the appropriate healthcare professional for your needs.
