American WholeHealth Networks’ Covered Chiropractic Benefits

Once obscure and met with an uncertain acceptance, chiropractic care has now entered the mainstream as a respected alternative to conventional treatments for numerous conditions. Chiropractors treat back and neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, auto injuries, and many other conditions. Increasingly, Americans are trusting chiropractic services to meet their health and wellness needs.

According to Newsweek magazine, chiropractic treatment is the most popular nonsurgical back therapy. The news magazine reported “Already, back pain sufferers cost this
country more than $100 billion annually in medical bills, disability, and lost productivity at work. Chiropractic treatment, the most popular nonsurgical back therapy, is booming,
with 60,000 chiropractors practicing today, a 50 percent increase since 1990.” Managed care companies and health plan providers are recognizing this growing trend, and are responding by integrating chiropractic care into their conventional health plan coverage.
