The Joint Helps You Manage Back Pain in Ways Even Obamacare Can’t

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — (Feb. 5, 2015) – Open enrollment for federal health insurance ends February 15. If you don’t have health coverage during 2015, did you know that the penalty fee this year is higher than it was for 2014? The penalty is 2% of your income or $325 per adult, whichever is more.

Of course, if you suffer from chronic back pain — and 80% of Americans do according to the National Institutes of Health — even the best health plans don’t provide sufficient chiropractic coverage. According to Money magazine (Nov. 2014 issue), the typical cap is 15 to 25 chiropractic visits a year.

This is why the demand for quality healthcare alternatives such as The Joint Chiropractic is rapidly increasing. The company’s phenomenal growth is due to its patient-centered model that goes against the norm in the healthcare industry. Through membership the company is able to eliminate insurance hassles and offer patients several plans or packages to choose from, with a significantly lower per visit cost than the average insurance co-pay.

A misalignment of your spine can affect your overall health and well-being. Made up of 24 independent vertebrae, your spine is what allows your body to move, twist, and bend through every motion of your busy life. It also encases and helps protect the delicate nerve tissue that carries every communication between your brain and body. Disruption in this communication to your organs and tissues may result in abnormal function.

Even if you’re not pain, chiropractic adjustments at The Joint can improve your overall health and make it easier for you to stay active. It’s definitely worth a try – especially after all the time spent hunched over computers trying to figure out your best health plan option.
