What Makes Us Unique & Different?
At Carolina Chirocare and Rehab we do not sell or recommend expensive pre-paid chiropractic packages (costing thousands of dollars…with no guarantees of results) like many other offices. We offer short term pain relief care and our patients are never pressured or sold expensive long term care plans that are not covered by insurance.
We accept most health insurances and if you lack health insurance we offer time of service discounts. If your conditions are due to a car accident or work injury we accept third party billing and will file your bills to your attorney or the car insurances.
We realize you have a choice in whom you consider for your health care provisions and we sincerely appreciate your trust in choosing our service for those needs. If you, a friend, or family member requires care, we would be honored to render our services. Call Us: (919) 351-8368
