Free consultations vary from one office or practitioner to another. I don't see anything wrong with giving away a brief 5 minute consult, but any longer than that you are actually taking on more liability if something is missed in only a consult.

Yes. If it has been months since your accident and you're still having discomfort then by all means you should be examined by a chiropractor and possibly have X-rays taken of the complaint area and more if recommended by the chiropractor that you are examined by.

They may refer you to a physical therapist, orthopedic or neurologist if they feel those types of providers would be better at treating you.
