We often receive questions about the cost of our services. Let’s take a moment to consider the price of chiropractic care and what factors can affect the total cost of these services.
Is There an Average Cost for Chiropractic Services?
The average cost of a chiropractic treatment can vary. According to estimates from DocShop, an average chiropractic session can range from $30 to $200, with a general national average of $65 per session.
While that is an average for many chiropractic services for a single session, treatments vary from patient to patient and also from practitioner to practitioner. From this average, a number of factors must be considered.
The Number and Frequency of Adjustments
For the full length of treatment, the cost will be determined by the number of adjustment required and sometimes the frequency of these visits. With a set cost per session, future visits will add to the total cost of pain relief and management.
Practice Location and Its Impact on Cost
The location of the chiropractic center can affect the cost of care. Chiropractic services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area tends to be more expensive than it would be in a smaller city in Texas, or in a rural area. That said, access to quality chiropractic care is more common in larger cities and metropolitan areas.
The Experience and Skill of the Chiropractor
People who excel in their field tend to charge more for their services. Patients can expect to pay more for a chiropractor, physical therapist, or sports medicine specialist with a good reputation and years of experience. This isn’t to say that an expensive chiropractor is the best, but that in many cases the cost is often backed up by quality of care.
Special Promotions Specific to a Practice
Some chiropractic centers have discounts and special deals in place to help patients save on the cost of care. These kinds of prices will be specific to individual practices and practitioners rather than based on geography or reputation per se.
Medical Insurance and Chiropractic Care
In terms of costs, you can reduce the overall cost of chiropractic care if you have medical insurance. Many insurance providers will cover chiropractic services as part of the treatment related to an injury. Since insurance policies vary, it’s important that you check with your insurance provider about these matters.
Discussing Cost and Payment
If the cost of chiropractic care poses a financial burden to your household, there are payment and financing options that you may want to consider. These can put the cost of pain relief within reach. We can go over these and other topics in more detail with you during a visit to our Fort Worth practice.
