Commit To Quit

Commit to Quit – May 31, 2015

commit to quit - no tobacco day 2015
National Tobacco Day 2015 is a great day to commit to quit smoking. As an American citizen, I fully support everyone’s right to choose to smoke or be overweight or whatever other vice a person may have that shortens their life. But, as a Doctor of Chiropractic, I encourage people to cut way back or not do it at all. One of the biggest things I remember when we started studying the anatomy of the lungs at Palmer College of Chiropractic, was the anatomy teacher saying, “the lungs are not designed to breathe in smoke of ANY kind”. This has played out in my mind thousands of times the last 30+ years.

Living in the electronic age as we do, virtually every adult knows the risks of smoking. I’m gonna turn the focus to some of the financial aspects. According to, “Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the US.” They say that there are $35 in health-related costs for every pack of cigarettes at $6.36. They state, “1/2 of all those who continue to smoke will DIE from a smoking-related illness.”

Let’s be more specific. The average price of a pack of cigarettes in Arizona as of August 2014 was $8.05. If a person smokes HALF of a pack a day, that’s $1,469.13 per year. Guess what? If you quit smoking you can afford ONE YEAR of chiropractic care for your ENTIRE FAMILY! And… You’ll have money left to take them out to have fun. The one year of care at Phoenix Mountain Chiropractic Life Center would be $99/month for 12 months or $1,188. This would leave almost $300 for fun.

So, I encourage you to commit to quit. Free yourself from the 7,000 chemicals and compounds you are pulling into your body. This will reduce your cancer-risk as at least 69 of those chemicals are cancer-causing. Your future health picture will improve immediately. By spending your money on chiropractic instead, your entire family will benefit by improved function of their nerve systems. Improved nerve system function will lead to improved function of all your organs and systems. (improved health)

If you decide not to commit to quit, I’d still urge you to get regular chiropractic care. Regular chiropractic care will assist your lungs, lymphatic system, liver and other organs/systems of the body. Improved function of these vital organs will allow your body to better deal with the toxic chemicals and compounds.

Yours for a better life,

Dr. Joe Hornback

Free Chiropractic Care?

Free Chiropractic Care? Maybe…

Well, as much as I’d love to offer free chiropractic care, it’s not possible to do so. Rent, insurance, phone bills and other necessities require income. But, with the low fees for regular chiropractic care at PMCLC, it’s completely possible that you could end up with free chiropractic care. “How is that possible?” Well, thanks for asking. One of the best benefits regular chiropractic patients tend to enjoy with improved function of their body is improved immunity. Basically, regular patients tend to not get sick as often. But don’t take my word for it, one of my patients explained it best:

“My feeling of health was verified when the personnel director at my office informed me of unused sick days which I could now use as extra vacation if I chose. That has never happened before!” (read her review)

With that in mind, let’s take a look at how you can get free chiropractic care.

Cost Reason
$588 12 months chiropractic care at $49/month

For our example, let’s look at potential savings for someone who takes advantage of 4 adjustments per month for $49.

Cost Reason
$320 Doesn’t miss 2 days of work at $20/hour during the year
$100 Doesn’t need 2 doctor visits at $50 each during the year ***
$180 Saves $15/month on prescriptions or OTC medications

Obviously, this is oversimplified. In this example, the patient recovers his chiropractic expenses completely. This is intended to help you understand that free chiropractic care is possible. In addition, many patients also experience:
