Why $69 a month for Unlimited Chiropractic Care?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on June 8, 2012

I’m asked quite often why I don’t take insurance and why my monthly fee is so low at just $69 a month.Here is as brief an answer to both questions as I can offer.

The Membership Practice is based on the understanding that EVERYONE can benefit from regular chiropractic care and that every man, woman and child should be able to find and afford quality chiropractic care and use it for the rest of their lives to improve and maintain their health and their life.

Why $69 a month?


  • It’s a simple fee that anyone can understand
  • It’s low enough that virtually anyone can afford
  • The greatest benefits  of chiropractic care come from time and repetition
  • Flat fee lets YOU know immediately and always what your chiropractic budget is
  • No surprises
  • Prevents conflicts of interest inherent with per visit fees
  • My recommendations are based on YOUR needs not MY fees
  • It lowers the financial risk of trying chiropractic care
  • The Family Membership cost of $129 lets the WHOLE family enjoy the benefits of chiropractic care
  • It’s more like a long-term investment than a  short term expense

Why don’t I take Insurance?


  • If you don’t have to file insurance claims for your chiropractic care, it helps keep your premiums lower
  • If you don’t file claims, there’s no entry in the insurance database that could affect your insurance rates or job status in the future
  • Avoid hassles
  • Lower my overhead so I can keep my fees low
  • Reduce paperwork and procedures built around justifying demands of insurance “bean counters”
  • Insurance is designed for catastrophic occurrences that might require hospitalization
  • Chiropractic is designed for health and to keep you OUT of the hospital
  • Insurance is betting against yourself.  Chiropractic is betting ON yourself.

NASCAR and Unlimited Chiropractic Care

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on June 4, 2012

NASCAR and unlimited chiropractic care?  I know you’re saying “What the heck is this guy talking about?”  Let me tell you.

I grew up in the South at a time when NASCAR and stock car racing was much different than it is today.  Stock car racing got its start during a time when moonshining was a big business.  Runners would “soup up” their cars to make sure they could outrun “The Man” while delivering their load of illegal whiskey. 

So, early stock car racers were sort of a different breed.  They talked funny.  They were at least a little quirky or unconventional.  And, they ran on an oval track. So, their route to success was pretty well defined.  There wasn’t much they could do but keep it on the track.  After that, they just went ALL OUT!  Peddle to the metal and hands on the wheel!

Chiropractors are cut from the same mold.  Well, most of us anyway.  We think and talk differently than most folks in the healthcare business.  We even talk differently than most of the general public.  And, we have a certain set of principles that keep us on track.  And if we’re doing things right, we focus on the ONE thing that ONLY a chiropractor can do.  And when we do that and do it right, we stay busy with little time for other distractions.

That’s where the unlimited chiropractic care thing comes in.  As a membership practice, we offer ONLY simple, straight chiropractic care designed to help you function at a higher level in every aspect of your life.  You don’t need insurance because our fee systems are simple and affordable.  You don’t need insurance because we exist for YOUR convenience.  You don’t need a lot of time because we keep it simple.  The point is, you don’t waste time or money because we keep it simple, focused and powerful.  And the simpler we keep things, the more people we can see.  And, that cycle just grows on itself so you can get great care, quickly and at a lower cost than in traditional settings.

Why unlimited chiropractic care?  Simple.  Because that is the ONLY way we know to make sure you get all the chiropractic care you need.   Because you will live in your body for the rest of your life AND because the quality of your life depends on a fully functioning nervous system, you should have ready access to quality chiropractic care on a regular basis for the rest of your life.  So, that is part of our plan.  Unrestricted access (during our normal hours of operatioImagen) and an affordable fee.  Simple?  We hope so.
