Should I see a doctor or chiropractor?
Whenever back pain occurs, it is always a good idea to consult with your primary care physician first. When they see an increase in your pain or discover your predicament is beyond their own expertise, then they will advise you to a more appropriate professional – and that is a chiropractor.
How long does a chiropractic adjustment take?
How Long will my Visits Take? This all depends on the length and severity of your condition, however, most first visits may last as much as 30 minutes. Follow-up visits are much less, often as little as 5-10 minutes.
