Does insurance cover chiropractic massage?

What does "adjustment" mean?
A chiropractic adjustment is when a chiropractor uses his hands to manipulate joints into their proper position. This process involves moving bones out of place so that they function properly again. Adjustments usually involve gentle pressure applied over specific areas of the spine.
Is there any evidence that chiropractic adjustments actually work?
There have been many studies done regarding the effectiveness of chiropractic care. Most of these studies show positive results.
There are several reasons why chiropractic care works.
First, our nervous system controls every part of our body.
When we experience stress, tension, poor posture, lack of exercise, improper nutrition, environmental toxins, emotional trauma, etc., all parts of our body suffer because of one another.
Second, the spinal column contains nerves that control everything else in our body.
Third, the muscles around the spine hold us upright.
Fourth, the discs located at each vertebrae cushion the weight of the head and protect the nerve roots.
Fifth, the sacrum supports the entire structure of the human skeleton.
Sixth, the ligaments connect bone to bone.
Seventh, the facet joints allow movement within the spine.
Eighth, the intervertebral disc allows flexibility within the spine.
Ninth, the cervical vertebrae support the skull.
