How long will treatment last?
Because chiropractic services are tailored to your individual needs, there
is no set treatment time. Once your chiropractor examines you, he or she will
provide a treatment plan and discuss the estimated length of treatment before
treatment is started.
Some patients also find that incorporating NH chiropractic services into
their preventative health care plan is beneficial, and schedule regular
appointments to ensure that their bodies remain pain-free and healthy.
Will my insurance cover chiropractic care?
Most health insurance plans include coverage for chiropractic care, since it's a very
cost-effective method of treatment. On your first visit with your doctor, check to see
what your benefits include. You can also talk to your chiropractor about payment options
that will suit you and your budget.
Who should see a doctor of chiropractic?
People of all ages and from all walks of life experience improved health and pain relief
through chiropractic care, from children to teens, all the way to professionals and older
members of the population. Your NH chiropractor will take a thorough history and then
determine the best course of care for you or your family.
Are chiropractors real doctors?
Absolutely. Chiropractors are healthcare practitioners with an emphasis on musculoskeletal
diagnosis and treatment.
Chiropractors complete eight years of college training, beginning with undergraduate studies
in core sciences, and continuing with the extremely rigorous Doctor of Chiropractic degree,
which includes medical physiology as well as hands-on clinical training.
Additionally, all doctors of chiropractic must pass national board exams and state exams
before entering the field.
Will it hurt?
Chiropractic manipulation is a carefully controlled technique which rarely causes
discomfort to the patient.
Do I need a referral from a medical doctor?
Most likely no. Chiropractors are first-contact doctors under state and federal regulations.
A small percentage of patients require a referral from their medical doctor and your doctor
can inform you if this is needed.
