If you’ve ever considered going to a chiropractor, one of your first thoughts is probably about the cost. You may call a few local Charlotte chiropractors and ask about their prices, only to be left with a wide range of prices from some, and no definitive answer from others. Unlike many other things, chiropractic doesn’t have a set or specific price tag, but that’s for good reason.
Why Is There Such a Range of Prices for Chiropractors?
The price per adjustment that a chiropractor charges is based on a lot of different things. The national average for a chiropractic visit ranges from $30 to $200, which is a huge variation. Many chiropractors offer services outside their main scope of chiropractic care, such as weight loss, physical therapy, supplements, exercise programs, acupuncture, and more. These drive the cost up per visit, and many chiropractors lack the advanced training necessary to provide these specialty services for maximum benefit to the individual. For example, Doctors of Physical Therapy have the primary focus of their education focused on physical therapy. In contrast, chiropractors can take a couple of optional classes specific to physical therapy, but they do not share the same qualifications or expertise as Doctors of Physical Therapy, yet some chiropractors offer PT services.
At Greater Life Chiropractic, Dr. Grant Lisetor is committed to being a principled chiropractor, meaning he practices chiropractic only—he does not dabble in other fields or offer non-chiropractic services to his practice members. Dr. Grant received an incredible chiropractic education and he puts that to good use every single day, and he believes strongly that while some of those other therapies and treatments can be effective, he and other chiropractors are not qualified to oversee them and should not offer them in their offices.
How We Reduce Your Overall Cost
By staying true to practicing only chiropractic, Dr. Grant Lisetor and his team at Greater Life Chiropractic are able to keep costs as low as possible for all the practice members they see. Not only do they accept all major insurances, but they also pay for a federal discount program in order to legally discount their fees while still billing insurance companies. This saves you money while still allowing Dr. Grant and his team to provide the best care possible to everyone that walks through their doors. Everyone at Greater Life Chiropractic is passionate about keeping care affordable and accessible to everyone in Charlotte because they know how effective and life-changing chiropractic care can be.
The Value of True Health
When it’s all said and done, with all the variables factored in, chiropractic care at Greater Life Chiropractic averages out to about $30 per adjustment. You will be given opportunities to pay for a care plan on a monthly basis rather than paying for each individual adjustment to reduce upfront costs and maximize the effectiveness of chiropractic care on your health. The cost of typical “healthcare” in the US is extremely high, and the low cost of chiropractic care can drastically reduce your need for additional healthcare expenses, and it will drastically improve your overall health and wellness in a number of ways. The cost of true health is truly priceless, but at Greater Life Chiropractic, we try to make it as affordable as we can so that everyone in Charlotte has access to better health and a greater life.
