Does TeamCare cover chiropractor visits?

    I will be with UPS for one year in March. I suspect I will be recieving the insurance info soon. I have heard that the older insurance that they used to provide had amazing benefits, such as the ability to go to a chiropractor several times a year. I am 18 years old, and feel like my back is already screwed up. I bend at the knees and all, but being 6'3 and working my ass off every night doesn't help. Does the newer insurance cover chiropractor visits?

    Can you touch your toes? Stretching really helps your back muscles.

    Going off memory, but in the Southern, I believe they will cover a max of $1,000

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    At 18 there is no reason to see a chiropractor.

    Your right. He should see a neck and back specialist.

    That would be a hamstring stretch...

    Agreed. Chiropractors (in my experience) are quacks.

    Sad but true. Most people fall for their bs and end up spending thousands on something that will not fix their back issues

    I've had good luck the few times I've been to a bone cracker. A good spinal adjustment if you have a kink in your back or neck can do wonders. A reputable chiropractor will tell you right away if he can help you or you need to see a medical Dr.

    I offer free full body massage. I will provide the baby oil at a small fee.

    Chiropractors have a reputation as being mostly people who flunked out of med school. They have some medical training but are not MD's. It is one of the fields they can go into and use the medical training they have. Some are good and can really help you but a lot are quacks who do more damage than good.

    My family uses a chiropractor. A very good one. It costs 10 buck each visit. With kids in sports. It is worth the 10 bucks. Maybe you should learn to pick up correctly?
