Why the Rapps?
The difference: Progressive, Conservative, Evidence Based
Progressive Chiropractors, like us, tend to work within the healthcare system with all other providers to reach the patient's optimal health goals.
Conservative care and health care costs are both lost in a tail spin. We treat each individual case differently; one of biggest frustrations people have with many healthcare providers is the canned answers patients receive and cookie cutter approach to their care. When we see people from different providers that have not given solutions for the patient, it seems they were given the same treatment as the next person even though they had completely different health issues. A lack of passion, thoughtfulness, and careful examination has brought our health care system to an unacceptable level of benefit per patient dollar spent. We feel our model is the direction our system needs to go through lower cost interventions and reduced risk.
Every doctor should be using evidence in their diagnosis and treatment or coaching of their patients. Unfortunately that seems to get lost shortly after leaving school. Health care has been and to a great extent is driven by the Health Insurers. We deal with virtually every Insurance company, HMO and PPO in the country. We are constantly made aware of the fact that health care costs are skyrocketing and the politicians always grandstand about how they are going to curb this runaway cost. What we need to keep in mind is no matter what the politicians do, example being make the insurers take any patient with whatever condition, the insurers will simply raise the policy costs or the deductibles to offset any losses they will incur. We, at Rapp Chiropractic, feel the better solution should be to teach wellness and preventive care to head off illness before it becomes more serious.
