Do you need permission to visit a chiropractor? Yes… Assuming you also need permission to use the bathroom.
If you’re too young to receive a driver’s license, vote, and buy a lottery ticket, or are otherwise incapable of making grown-up decisions, then some lucky decision-maker gets to determine your fate when it comes to receiving any form of health care.
And of course, if you’re in prison… Convicts probably need a thumbs-up from their warden. Apart from those reasons, NO!
Nevertheless, I’ve had countless people email me detailed descriptions of their medical history, explaining how medical doctors or physical therapists can’t seem to find the problem… how MRIs and CT scans have come up negative… and how they’re desperately seeking relief – if only they were allowed to visit a chiropractor.
While some people genuinely don’t have two pennies to rub together, many can be tighter than two coats of paint when it comes to paying for anything out of pocket. (A patient once hounded his insurance company every week for three months just to get reimbursed $25 bucks!)
I’ve got news for you – “Grandma Aetna” doesn’t own you. The only thing that stands between you and chiropractic care is your slavish dependency on using health insurance. You can probably throw a rock and hit a chiropractor in your city who’s willing to give you a free consultation.
So buck up and call someone already – you don’t need permission!
