No Funding for Chiropractic Services Will Cost Albertans in Many Ways
Chiropractic therapy is known as one of the most helpful and cost-effective therapies that are getting a huge response from the people. Like all other places of the world, the people of Alberta are also welcoming this therapy in both hands. The reason behind the same is that the citizens of Alberta are fetching more benefits by using this therapy rather than the conventional ways of medical treatment. Due to this positive response from the people of Alberta the state government of Alberta is used to fund the chiropractic projects and due to the same the chiropractor Edmonton can treat their patients at a very cheap cost. This was beneficial for both the chiropractors and the patients as the patients can get their treatment at a much cheaper cost and the professionals also get more patients and help of the government funding in order to introduce new technologies and systems in place.
When with the help of the government funding and a positive response from the people chiropractic practice is seeing a new direction, then suddenly government has announced no funding policy for the chiropractic services. The experts from the Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors spoke against this new government policy and also showed clear dissatisfaction against it too. According to them due to this funding, the people of Alberta used to get the chiropractic services at an affordable cost and not only that due to the funding the chiropractor Edmonton professionals also able to introduce new mechanisms and advanced instruments as well. But now due to the declaration, they will not be able to get any support from the government. Apart from that, the worst part is that now the Albertans has to shell more money in order to get chiropractic services.
If you have to go by the reports more than 10000 Albertans send letters to the health ministry and to the MLA department in support of the funding for the chiropractic services. But the government took their decision disregarding the public’s opinion. Officials from the Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors tried to get in touch with the health minister in order get a rational explanation behind this move but every time they failed to contact him.
The effects of this decision
Though the chiropractic services associated with the manual adjustment of the spine and other parts, but now due to catering more advanced services to the patients each and every chiropractor Edmonton uses various instruments. These instruments help them to diagnose the problems in a better way and thus accurate treatments can be rendered. But now due to this decision of the government the scenario will change drastically and the patients have to either pay more or have to be satisfied with the limited services. The reason is that the devices come with hefty price tags and without funding it is almost impossible to buy those machinery. Thus now the chiropractor Edmonton practitioners now have to depend on basic treatment therapies and services that can be catered without the help of that latest equipment.
