Harvard Medical School Endorses Chiropractic and Report it Safe

Much of medical academia has been supporting chiropractic and now many of the most prestigious medical institutions are publishing their support for our care. In large, this is a result of the overwhelming positive pro-chiropractic scientific literature that has been published over the last few years with more coming. The referenced article review is from Harvard Medical School explaining both what their view of chiropractic is, who we treat and the rarity of adverse side effects. In short, Harvard Medical School now says what the chiropractic profession has been saying for years.

Don't leave yourself untreated!

I just read that joint replacements in people under 55 have increased 37% in the past ten years.  I believe this is due to untreated inflammation within the joints, usually the knees or hips that does permanent damage. Don't allow injuries to become chronic even if the initial pain subsides.

Do yourself a favor

Do yourself a favor, get medical payment coverage on your auto policy.  When you are hurt in an accident the last thing you need to deal with is financial issues, hospital and doctor bills.  Medpay covers you and others regardless of fault.  An accident could leave you dealing with bill collectors waiting for your case to settle.

$25,000 in coverage is around $120.00 a year.  You will be glad you did. This coverage must be requested it is not automatic.
