_Mountain View, Missouri (West Plains / Willow Springs / Cabool / Winona / Summersville) ---- Spinal Decompression Doctor, Russell Schierling, presents another blog article on Spinal Decompression Therapy.


I recently saw a great website for Spinal Decompression Therapy.  The site was not only very impressive, but claimed nearly miraculous results.  As I read through the website, I was impressed by their PATIENT TESTIMONIALS as well as their SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH showing how effective Spinal Decompression Therapy really is.   Their explanations concerning the way that Spinal Decompression Therapy could help heal DEGENERATIVE DISCS, HERNIATED DISCS, FACET SYNDROME, SPINAL STENOSIS, and SCIATICA, were frankly excellent.   In fact, I was rather tickled by nearly everything about this doctor's website ---- until I got to the end. 

FREE  FREE  FREE  FREE in big red letters.   It's all free!  FREE Evaluation.  First three weeks of treatment FREE.  No out of pocket expense.  FREE transportation to the clinic.  Just give us your insurance card, sit back, and enjoy the ride....... all for FREE!  I recently met a woman who had gone to this particular clinic for the free evaluation.  It seems that things were not quite so "free" as they had been made out to be.  But think about it....   How could they be?

Have you ever wondered what kind of costs are associated with a business simply keeping their doors open ---- let alone giving away FREE services?  Somebody is going to end up paying!  Stop and think about the actual cost of treating a patient.  Although I did not bother to check the cost of a webpage created by XYZ Design Company, I know it's definitely not "free".  What about the cost of four years of the doctor's undergraduate education?  You can more than triple that amount by adding in the cost of four years of Chiropractic College.  How about the cost of X-ray equipment?  What about the cost of the Decompression Equipment?  I can assure you it's not cheap!  What about the cost of the office itself?  The cost of staff members?  Three or four different kinds of insurance?  Three or four different computer programs?  Utilities?  Postage?  Upkeep?  Property Taxes?  On and on and on. If these costs are not recovered somewhere, the offices offering the "FREEBIES" would go out of business. How are these costs recovered? Go look in the mirror.

Although many insurances will cover at least part of a SPINAL DECOMPRESSION PROTOCOL, most do not bend over backwards in an effort to non-invasively help you with your back pain.  In fact, most Insurance Companies act like they could not care less about your health --- or saving you from UNWANTED SURGERIES --- surgeries that they seem more than willing to pay for!  Put them on DRUGS, give them some SHOTS and if we are lucky, maybe they will die before we have to pay out any real money for surgeries that we already know don't work

How bad is this problem of discriminating against Spinal Decompression Therapy?  Medicare has gone so far to declare Spinal Decompression Therapy to be "Experimental " (their word, not mine) and lacking in scientific evidence ("insufficient data to support the benefits of its use") --- a ridiculous assertion in light of THESE PATIENT'S RESULTS!  Under Federal Medicare Guidelines (I have them available for review in my clinic), the one and only reimbursable service offered by chiropractors is the CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT ----- and only then if done on a specific treatment schedule (multiple times a week for multiple weeks), with a complete set of treatment goals in mind. 

Medicare never pays for examinations, x-rays, or therapy of any kind ---- if it is done in a chiropractic clinic.   And the truth of the matter is that most Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is done in chiropractic clinics.  The medical community simply does not mess around with services that are non-reimbursable by insurance.  

The truth is, if another chiropractic clinic tells you that Medicare covers Spinal Decompression Therapy, they are engaging in something hinky.  It's kind of like cheating on your taxes.  It's not a problem until you get that little yellow envelope by certified mail telling you that you're the lucky winner of an IRS audit.

I am truly sorry that Medicare & most private insurance companies stink in regards to paying for Spinal Decompression Therapy (THE ACA'S ACTUAL DECOMPRESSION GUIDELINES), but unfortunately, it is not something that I can control or change.  However, I will sit down with you and go over any questions you might have, as well as covering different PAYMENT OPTIONS to make the cost as affordable as possible.    I will go out of my way to help you get the care that you need at a price you can afford.   When you actually look at what we offer in OUR DECOMPRESSION THERAPY PROTOCOL, you will realize what a bargain we are.In fact, I would guess that I am one of only a few doctors in America who offers a Money Back Guarantee for our Spinal Decompression Therapy Program (HERE).

I have been treating patients in Mountain View for over 20 years.  As you can tell from our PATIENT TESTIMONIALS, I have built Schierling Chiropractic's reputation one patient at a time. I truly believe in the value and effectiveness of Spinal Decompression Therapy, and offer it as a service to our patients who are looking not only to avoid RISKY SPINAL SURGERIES, but to those who would like to get their lives back. Our Decompression Equipment is manufactured locally (in Arkansas) by one of the largest manufacturers of rehab equipment in the world.  And, although our Decompression Table is every bit as effective as other versions by other manufacturers, the initial cost is far under the $120,000.00 that many practitioners paid for their DRX9000 or VAX-D UNITS just a few short years ago.

The benefit is that I pass the savings on to you ---- my patients.  No tricks.  No games.  No gimmicks.  No surprises.  No "FREE  FREE  FREE !".  Just the best value for you ---- my patients ---- my neighbors ---- my friends. 

I feel confident that if you shop around, you’ll discover that Schierling Chiropractic, LLC is your best choice for Spinal Decompression Therapy.  No one offers more services with their DECOMPRESSION PROGRAM for a better price!  So, isn't about time you made a plan to get your life back? 

The one part of our Spinal Decompression Protocol that is free, is the evaluation.  Before we do anything, I have to SEE IF YOU ARE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY.  Unfortunately, people who are dealing with Chronic Pain get desperate.   I have to turn numerous people away for conditions that cannot be helped by Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression --- probably about 50% of the people who inquire.  Call us today at (417) 934-6337, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Schierling to see if Spinal Decompression Therapy might be a good option for you.  We will sit down, go over your history, your tests, your x-rays, and MRI findings.  I will tell you what I think and you can proceed from there.
