The Fight Back podcast is produced by the non-profit organization Healthcare Consumer Rights Foundation. Each episode takes a look at a pressing current medical issue, often including the story of someone who has been negatively affected by that issue, such as insurance claims denied, not getting the referral to a specialist or medical procedure one needs, an unexpected “out of network” bill, dealing with heart disease, COVID, mental illness, and more. Then we interview a relevant expert who can provide the insights and resources to help solve these kinds of problems while navigating our complex healthcare system.
In this Fight Back Minicast release, we talk about chiropractic care with Dr. Steven Barham. After suffering a severe back injury playing college football, Steven was faced with major surgery but chose to try chiropractic care. After treatment proved effective, he entered the chiropractic profession. Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that emphasizes the body’s inherent recuperative power to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
Listen in to this minicast as “Fight Back” interview Ashton Ellis to discuss the critically important topic of advanced healthcare directives, a legal document that addresses such end-of-life issues as “do not resuscitate” orders, treatment options, healthcare proxies, and more.
