Welcome to East End Chiropractic

Your Car or Your Health

Last week, I had some routine repairs done to my car.  The rear brakes and rotors were pretty much worn out.

Taking Care of Your Health - East Nashville TN - East End Chiropractic

The repair bill was just under $500.

I knew it was going to be expensive.  I knew it wouldn’t be covered under warranty.  I don’t have “health insurance” for my car that allows me to pay a $10 “co-pay” and let the insurance company take care of the rest.

Without flinching, I pulled out my debit card and paid the repair bill.  I wasn’t thrilled about it, but I knew it had to be done (brakes are pretty important), and nobody else was going to pay for it.  The garage certainly didn’t feel any obligation to give me a huge discount, despite the fact that brakes are such an important part of the car, and I could die if I didn’t get them fixed.

I simply paid the bill.  Now I have a safe car.

So let’s change the scenario a little bit.  Let’s say I need some blood testing , a tooth filled, some chiropractic work , a medication, or any number of health-related things.  Paying $500 would seem OUTRAGEOUS!

My question is WHY does it seem so outrageous to have to pay $500 for healthcare-related services while replacing some parts on my car for $500 doesn’t sound so bad?

The point of this blog is simple: Your health is worth so much more than your car! So, take care of yourself, regardless of what your insurance may or may not cover!
