A chiropractic visit for back pain includes a history, physical exam, assessment and development of a treatment plan. A chiropractor may recommend:

  • Spinal manipulation and other therapies to ease symptoms and improve mobility
  • Exercises to strengthen the abdomen and back muscles
  • Education and training in self-care and correct posture and alignment

This care path includes the cost of a single visit to your chiropractor.

A chiropractor may combine spinal manipulation with other treatments.

  • Other treatments that may be recommended include exercise, heat or cold, and over-the-counter pain relievers.
  • A chiropractor may also advise you about lifestyle factors (such as posture, diet and weight control) and how they may help ease your back pain.

It is important to remember that the total cost of this care path does not include medicine, imaging studies or referrals to other healthcare providers. Those charges can add up.

If you have an appointment with a chiropractor to evaluate your back pain:

  • Bring a copy of your medical history (past illnesses, surgeries, and hospitalizations)
  • Bring a list of your medications (including over-the-counter)
  • Write down any questions, symptoms or concerns you want to talk about.

Here are some questions to ask your healthcare provider:

  • What are my treatment options? Are there any alternatives? What are the risks?
  • Are you recommending any tests? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, why do I need the test?
  • When might I start to see improvement in my symptoms?
  • What are my follow-up plans? What symptoms should I report before my next appointment?

Make sure you understand your action plan, your treatment plan, any possible alternatives, and what medications are recommended (including possible side effects).
