What does a chiropractor do?


Chiropractors do what is known as a chiropractic adjustment, which involves a few different methods with the same goal of alignment in the bones and joints in the body. These methods can involve manual adjustments, where your chiropractor may put you in certain positions and then apply the pressure of their body weight to the area. This is generally done to manage musculoskeletal pains caused by the joints or bones in the area, they may also use other methods such as soft-tissue therapy to relax the muscles related to the pain or to manage spasms the muscles are creating as well. This can be done before the actual adjustment is done as well, as the relaxed muscles allow the bones to move more easily back into proper alignment.

After your adjustments are completed, the chiropractor may also use other things to assist you, such as braces for the knees or elbows, and kinesio tape to support the muscles in the area. Some chiropractors may also recommend you do certain stretches or exercises for the muscles in the area, as in some cases the alignment problems may be related to the lack of use or lack of muscle tone in these areas as well or refer you to seek care from a nutritionist to make sure you are eating the needed vitamins, minerals, and proteins to keep the body healthy.

What problems can a chiropractor help with?


Some problems and conditions that chiropractors can help with are chronic headaches, arthritis, whiplash, joint pain or dysfunction, back pains ranging from the lower back to the upper back, sciatica pain, muscle spasms or pains, and neck pain. Before your adjustment, the chiropractor will go over all your medical conditions and the pains associated with the reason you are looking to have an adjustment done, and they will go over what to expect during your adjustment, after the adjustment, and any risks that can be associated with chiropractic adjustments. Your chiropractor is not going over these things with you to scare you, they will discuss this with you so that you are making an informed decision about your health.

Do chiropractors take walk-ins?


Most commonly chiropractors do not take walk-in appointments, but this can vary day to day, and based on the clinic they work out of. If you are looking to have a chiropractic adjustment the best option will be to book an appointment, and if possible, you could ask to be added to a cancellation list if there is an appointment time that opens before your booked appointment.

Can you see a chiropractor without a referral?


Most commonly chiropractors will not need a referral to be seen, but this can vary based on the chiropractor and the clinic they work out of and if you are planning to use insurance for any portion of the amount you will need to pay. If you are planning to use insurance to pay for your chiropractic appointments, you should reach out to your insurance provider and review your policy to make sure you do not need a primary care physician to refer you for the chiropractic appointment.

Since chiropractors are licensed medical professionals, if you are not planning to use insurance for your appointments you will not need a referral, as the chiropractor will go over your health with you and do a physical exam before they begin the adjustment process. However, even if you do not need a referral from a primary care physician for your appointment it can still be worth speaking to your doctor prior to this, as they can advise if for your current condition chiropractic treatment is going to be appropriate or beneficial for your health.

How often should you visit the chiropractor?


Your chiropractor will be able to give you the best timeline for when you should see them, as this will be based on the area of concern, what they determine during the evaluation, and how the adjustment goes. If this is your first appointment, they will likely recommend you come back within two weeks, if this is not your first appointment the timeline between appointments can be between one month to every two months. Commonly, patients should see their chiropractor at least once a month once they have achieved alignment so that this can be maintained.
