Does Insurance Cover Chiropractic Care?

Some Chiropractic clinics will take insurance and bill to insurance companies directly. You are expected to pay your copay and any deductibles associated with your insurance. TriMotus, however, does not take insurance. Although, our degrees are in chiropractic, we practice like manual therapists, rehab specialists and chiropractors combined, addressing pain at the root and deliver more treatment then just an adjustment. Our care is comprehensive and with such care we take more time with our patients with advanced techniques that the traditional chiropractor is not providing. Due to this we do not take insurance directly, but we can provide a superbill to our patients where they can directly submit that form to insurance and they may reimburse them directly.

After that there will be a treatment session that will include muscle release techniques to loosen tight muscles, stretching to restricted painful areas. Joint mobilization and exercises to strengthen weak areas of the body contributing to the pain. Please wear clothes that you would wear to the gym for a workout.
