Chiropractor Cost


How Much Does a Chiropractor Cost?

 
 average costRange: $34-$106 
post E-mail post Post   Comments (58)
  Typical costs:
  • Fees per chiropractic session average $65 for a general vertebrae adjustment, according to a recent survey in Chiropractic Economics magazine.
  • Sessions can range from $34 to $106 per session depending on where you live, how many regions of the spine a chiropractor services and whether exams are required.
  • Average fees are highest in the South, around $70 per session, and lowest in the Midwest, at $60. New patients should expect to pay slightly more on their first visit, from $61 to $161, because an overall health consultation is usually required. Chiropractors charge additional fees for X-rays, which can range from $44 to $159.
  • Most health insurance plans cover some level of chiropractic care, and treatment is also a tax-deductible medical expense, according to the American Chiropractic Association[1] (ACA). Many chiropractors accept insurance or payment plans.

What should be included:
  • The cost of most general chiropractic sessions includes an adjustment of the vertebrae. Using their hands and arms, doctors apply force to the back and neck to realign joints and relieve pressure or pain, according to the ACA.
  • The length and frequency of sessions depends on the severity of a patient's need. Patients sometimes experience a brief period of soreness after an adjustment, which generally goes away within a day or two.
Additional costs:
  • Some chiropractors offer additional services, or modalities, to treat chronic ailments and reduce tension. In a recent survey of 365 chiropractors, around 48 percent said they offer massage and 15 percent offer acupuncture, according to Chiropractic Economics.
  • Chiropractors charge an average of $42 for a massage therapy session, where they apply pressure to the body's muscles and soft tissue.
  • Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese practice of inserting needles into the body's pressure points to manipulate its energy. Acupuncturists charge $100 to $150 for an initial visit, which generally includes a consultation, and around $65 for follow-up visits.
Discounts:
  • Doctors who operate cash-only practices typically charge less, an average of $57 per session, because they are not concerned about what percentage of reimbursement they will receive from insurance companies, according to the Chiropractic Economics survey.
  • Chiropractors who have a single practice typically charge less, around $63 per session, as opposed to doctors who work in a medical group and charge an average of $70.
Shopping for a chiropractor:
  • The first step is finding the right doctor. Ask relatives or friends for a recommendation. The American Chiropractic Association offers a directory of members[2] .

I am a chiropractor who runs a very busy P.I practice. I am sorry to inform you that $100 per visit on a lien basis is cheap and that $100 can usually be negotiated at settlement time. In my state chiropractors charge about $190 a visit for P.I cases, but when settlement time comes they may average like $100 a visit-it just depends on the amount of the settlement.

Hi I was in a rear end car accident and the other persons insurance is covering me for all treatment, I've had about 13 sessions with this chiropractor. The insurance recently got the bill from him and based on that they are offering me compensation, which is not a lot, and my back is still in pain. I wont be able to afford to go back to him. I think this is way over priced. Please help and advise on what i should do. I still have the case open so before i close the case i need to see what i can do to insure my future care for my back.

Hello, I stumbled onto this site by accident. I am a chiropractor. Best way to be happy is ask a friend or family member who they go to and are they happy with the Doctor... Look at their reviews, I always do when it comes to anything. I charge $50 a visit here in San Diego and that is considered usual and customary for this area and I still am on the low side. I do not charge for therapies. I believe therapy helps aid in recovery. I see one person is upset with the one Doctor in Cranberry, sorry you are unhappy but enoungh. Fibromyalgia is first very difficult to diagnose and some don't respond. I am sorry for you. I hope this may help some of you. I will not leave my Bus. Name only because I don't want to look like I am advertising. Chiropractic is very safe contrary to what some say.

Many different philosophies
Amount: $0.00 per session
Posted by: Take an active role! in LaCrosse, WI.Posted: January 30th, 2014 08:01AM
Firm or Practice: CPT
Be aware there are many different philosophies in chiropractic. From you only need manipulation (but you need 40 of them) to you only need to come in for manipulation when you feel you need to (No plan of care at all). True manipulation to simple snapping with a small impact tool.
Many DCs now provide a quality treatment plan that sets goals to be met, includes various therapies as needed and most importantly shows the patient exercises that can be performed at home and/or work.
My recommendation? Look for a DC that has a reasonable plan to get you better and shows you exercises that you can continue performing the 'keep yourself better' rather than having to 'keep coming back' indefinitely.
If you need care again due to a new injury or flare up of a chronic problem then additional treatment may be necessary. You, however, need to take an active role in your own care. Find a DC that will do this.
Cost is overall less as you don't have to keep coming back.

Chiropractic students are taught not to sell package treatments. It is completely shady and false promises to accomplish something dependent on so many variables. Your chiropractor should be 100% up front about what a single treatment entails, should walk you through her or his assessment of your condition, review any films or MRI's you may have had recently or order some at the local hospital (so your insurance will pay for it if the chiro does not have equipment on site), and then explain a treatment plan along with risks and benefits to you and yours in simple, no nonsense verbiage. No one else is trained to do a chiropractic adjustment and that is what you pay for. We attend graduate school for 4 years after most of us have finished BS degrees in biology, biochemistry, etc. If a chiropractor offers you a package deal, say thank you and walk away. Treatment is based on a visit by visit basis. Period.

I was referred to Dr. Dan Solkamans for some pain in the neck and back by a friend for only $99. On the first visit he spent about 30 minutes with me and took some X-rays. He then got me adjusted and told me that he was going to go over my X-rays and would like to explain the results with me. The next day I came back and he spent a full hour with me showing me why I have been suffering for the past 3 years. He explained with plenty of research and examples and gave me his recommendations. He did have several options that fits different needs and lifestyles. He ranges for $30-$50. Because of he care that he showed me I took the 72 visit/9 month program. That was 3 months ago and I feel great! I continue to see results so much that my friends can see a difference in me. I have referred my own wife and he even takes care of my son now. I recommend Dr. Dan Solkamans to everybody. He's worth it!

At first I was a little doubtful because of how young this guy was. I actually thought he was the doctor's son until he introduced himself. But after we sat down he started asking me A LOT of questions and his nurse or whatever her title is kept writing on a piece of paper. She must have been new because he kept explaining things to her about why certain answer I gave were important. After that he told me what was wrong with me and that he could fix it in about 6 visits if I promised to do some exercises at home that he gave me. 4 visits in and my neck doesn't hurt at all, and that's the first time since 2008. What really surprised me is how he knew when I walked in the door that my pain was gone just by looking at me. I'm a believer and in fact I'm taking my boyfriend with me next time so Dr. Holland can take a look at him.

I'm paying out of pocket and out of network a total of 61$. My doctor is submitting items at 85, 60, 50, 50 with an initial total cost to insurance of $245. I'm not really sure what the items are because they aren't very discriptive on the EOB. Reasonable?

Just came across this site wondering why some of my patients complain about my fees. Found out I'm under charging (but happy with the amount) and satified that some people are just cheap and think they deserve free care. Hate reading about DCs overcharging and over treating, but that is not what they teach in Chiro College, but are taught by questionable consultants. I think if any doctor just treat people like they would want, and quit the high pressure sales and pre pay visits they wold find people referring and staying. I really hate hearing some of these stories since I really think chiropractic can help so many people, but people will miss out due to a story about a crook. Just be wary of who you see, stay away from prepays and ask around to others before going. All professions have scam artist, ours is no different, but we also have great doctors as many of the post reflect.

I found this place with a dealfind deal, looking for an hour massage for $29. It also came with the consultation (x-rays, body scans, the works!). I continue care because it feels great! Everyone there is welcoming and informative. I've gone through my 3rd adjustment and I've already learned so much! They are so helpful in explaining why chiropractic care is important, and fixing my spine and letting my nervous system heal itself seemed to be the most important thing to them. They have a special deal right now for people that haven't had chiropractic care before: 30 minute massage and consultation free. They really care.
It's located right by Fremont, a few blocks from the Troll. Dr. Nadeem Bajwa is a great guy. He's knowledgeable, charismatic, flexible, and he takes his time to really make sure you've got what you need. I'm glad I've found this place!
