Ehlich Family Chiropractic Clinic
Went in w/sciatica. Was charged $145 for consult/ x-rays. Website stated $55 for Consul, Exam, Diagnostic Testing, X-Ray. Convinced me to go with 3 yr restorative program. Cost of $195 per mo. Said if I decided at any point to discontinue services, I would be charged a per visit fee. After 6 visits, I decided to no longer pursue treatment. Total for 6 visits was $763. Worst part is the treatments didn't help my original complaint of sciatica. Do your homework before visiting this facility. I wish I had.
Tips & Advices
Several forms of pain management exist that are not approved typically treated by physicians or covered by health insurance plans. These include therapies like acupuncture, for example, or herbal preparations sold in stores. Before beginning any form of treatment or medication not approved by a doctor, it’s a good idea to still reach out to a physician or expert in alternative medicine for advice, or conduct some research online first.
Managing pain in children can be complicated, as kids may have more difficulty communicating their pain to doctors. Children also need to be more carefully monitored when taking most medications.
Health insurance might cover a selection of approved pain management therapies. Every insurance plan is different, so patients should check with their provider to make sure.
Patients might be instructed to continue therapy at home, either through regular exercise or specific treatment. Some people also find that getting frequent rest, taking warm baths or avoiding certain foods, for example, can help manage pain.
Side effects depend on the exact drugs and dosages used, as well as the disease being treated and many other factors. Some pain-relieving drugs, especially opioids, are known to cause drowsiness. Many antidepressants also cause a variety of adverse effects. Doctors must work closely with patients to minimize these side effects in the course of treatment.
