There is only that much time left to 2016. Can you believe it?
That means there are only so many days left for you to use your health insurance benefits for this year before they expire on Dec 31st, 2016. As the saying goes: if you don’t use it, you lose it!
If you haven’t done so already, now would be a good time to review your employment insurance benefits so that you can use what you are entitled to massage, chiropractic care, orthotics, etc.
Chiropractic care is covered by most extended health insurance and you do not need a referral to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors are legislated as primary contact health care professionals in every province in Canada. This means that patients can book an appointment with their chiropractor directly. Our clinic also offers customized orthotics services. Our chiropractors are trained to do assessments and castings for orthotics. Most extended health insurance plans include some coverage for custom Orthotics. Please check your health care plan for the amount of coverage and if they require a medical doctor’s prescription.

Chiropractic care, massage therapy, and orthotics can all be used preventatively. In fact, there are many benefits to doing so.
Massage can help release chronic muscle tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical stress, promote faster healing of injured muscles, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Your Registered Massage Therapist will assist you in restoring, maintaining and enhancing your well-being.
Chiropractic care can: Improve movement in your joints, improve your posture, and provide relief from headaches, neck and back pain. It can also help prevent work-related muscle and joint injuries, lead to enhanced athletic performance, improve your flexibility and range of motion, relieve pregnancy-related backache and help in the correction of gait and foot problems.
This is a typically busy time in our clinic; so don’t miss your chance to book a massage with an RMT, an adjustment or an initial exam with one of our chiropractors and get the most of your insurance benefits!
