When you visit a chiropractic clinic, you can receive a number of different treatments for a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues. A chiropractor can treat you if you’re suffering from back pain, neck pain, scoliosis, disc issues, spinal compression, and much more. Additionally, many chiropractors are skilled in the realm of pain management, assisting with chronic conditions like headaches, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and more.
One of the most basic chiropractic treatments is an adjustment, which is when the chiropractor manipulates the spine so it’s correctly aligned. This involves pushing your joints with sudden force to help move them, often resulting in a cracking sound. Other chiropractic treatments you might benefit from include ultrasound therapy, heat and ice therapy, electrical stimulation, and massage therapy to help tired joints and muscles relax. Some chiropractors also offer rehabilitation exercises, dietary consultations, and acupuncture for a more holistic view of health.
Before providing any treatment, chiropractors often perform a consultation paired with X-rays to get a better idea of the condition of the spine and what may be causing your issues.
Most chiropractors take some form of insurance to make the cost of care more reasonable. To attract new customers, many offer free consultations to help diagnose your condition and create a plan of care. However, if this special isn’t available in your area, you may have to pay more for the X-rays. Plan for an initial visit cost between $60 and $160.
After this initial visit, if you have health insurance, you’ll probably have to pay a copay at each visit. This can vary depending on your insurance, but it shouldn’t exceed $50 per visit. If you don’t have insurance, the average fee for a chiropractic session is $65, but this can range from $30 to $110.
Keep in mind that most insurances do have set limits on how many chiropractic visits you can have per year. This means that your insurance won’t cover you if you exceed the visit limit. Luckily, most insurances do not require that you have a referral from your doctor in order to see a chiropractor.
Making a chiropractic appointment is easy when you use Solv. Rather than making calls to numerous offices in town to find out when they have openings, simply browse nearby chiropractors on Solv to see which ones have availability. Once you find a doctor that meets your needs, you can book a same-day doctor appointment online with no hassle.
In general, chiropractors have openings Monday through Friday during normal business hours. Some are open later or on weekends to accommodate patients who have jobs during the day. As long as you have an appointment, you should not have to wait very long to see the chiropractor. The appointment itself shouldn’t take long either, as adjustments and other treatments are usually very quick. Expect your first visit to take around 30 minutes and subsequent visits to take as little as 15 minutes. Most chiropractors recommend a regular treatment schedule depending on your condition, so you may need to make several appointments a week for the first few weeks after your initial visit.
