  • Chiropractors use their hands to move various joints through their normal range of motion.
  • A chiropractor may use this technique to manipulate the spine or joints outside of the spine.

A chiropractor may also advise you about lifestyle factors such as exercise, diet and weight control.

If you contact a chiropractor for evaluation, be prepared to discuss your symptoms, how long you've had them, and if you have had them before.

  • Before your appointment make a list of your questions/concerns/symptoms; your medications (including over-the-counter); and what makes your symptoms better or worse.
  • During your appointment, ask what might be causing the pain, when you may start to see improvement, if you should exercise or modify your activity, what the follow-up plans are and what symptoms you should report before your next appointment.
  • After your appointment, you should know your diagnosis, what tests you might need, the reason for those tests, and if the test results will change your treatment plan. You should also understand your treatment plan, any possible alternatives, and what medications you should take (including possible side effects).
