Chiropractor Questions Chiropractic Adjustment

Do chiropractors offer free consultations?

I am curios whether or not chiropractic care would be beneficial for my overall health, so I was wondering if free consultations in chiropractic care are common practice.

Yes but likely many will not offer free examinations. It is very difficult to fully diagnose your issues without an examination.
Some chiropractors do offer free consultations which usually include talking with the doctor about your health concerns to see if chiropractic would be a good fit. It also allows you to get to meet the doctor and staff and see the facility. At our office, we always offer free consultations for those very reasons.
Most chiropractor's will have no problem sitting down with a patient for a few minutes to hear his/her case. After that, the doctor can decide if the case can be best helped by chiropractic or some other method.
80% do
Our office offers a complimentary consultation and it is a common practice for many Chiropractic Physicians. We have found it is a better way to answer some of your concerns before having a full examination. You can meet the office staff, tour the facility, ask about techniques, get a feel for the doctor's philosophy, and find out if they think you are a good candidate for care. You won't be able to find out "what is wrong" with you in a consultation, that would be an examination, but they can often be done on the same day if there is time in the doctor's schedule. A complimentary consultation is usually last 10-15 minutes.
Running ads and promotions happen but not frequently.
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. Its best to charge for the consultation, examination and x-rays if needed.
Most Chiropractors offer free consultations to talk with the potential patient to answer questions and see if Chiropractic is a good fit for that patient. If it isn't then they can refer out to the appropriate health care provider. If it is a good fit then they can get started with some Chiropractic care.
Many chiropractors do offer free consultations, which will be very brief. If you need to find out if the chiropractic will benefit your condition, it won't take long. However, anything more than that probably won't be answered.
Yes, most chiropractors do offer free consultations. In my office, a free consultation lasts about 15 minutes and helps, both the doctor and the patient, gather information about whether or not chiropractic care would be the best course of treatment.
Chiropractic Care would for sure be beneficial! It helps all sorts of health problems you may have and helps some from starting.. We do not offer free consults but we do offer a $20 Certificate it includes Adjustment, Exam, Physical Therapy & Massage. :)
First off to clarify nothing is "free" it costs me to open the office and to pay employees to be there and of course time away from caring for other patients. I do offer a no charge consultation to prospective patients in order to help them understand if chiropractic care would be beneficial for their situation.
Most Chiropractors will give a free consultation to see if you are a candidate for care. At Vida we want to ensure you are in the right place before you waste your time and money so we encourage you to consult with one of our providers.
We offer free 15-minute consultations, during a few specified times throughout the week, as a courtesy to help bridge the gap between knowing and not knowing whether or not our services would be good fit for your needs. As far as if it is common practice to offer. I do not have the answer for that.
There are several Chiro that do that and other offer a great discount on
consultations/initial evaluations. In overall I definetely recommend
chiropractic care for everyone whether there is a complaint or not.
Many chiropractic offices do offer free consultations to those who are not sure if they want to pursue chiropractic treatment. If you do find one that does offer free consultations you must understand that if you agree to treatment then charges will incur for evaluation, examination and/or x-rays.
I say yes, Chiropractic will definitely be beneficial to your overall health. Some office will do a complimentary consultation but any further testing you have to pay for it. We offer complimentary consultation but we charge for the testing.
Hi, thank you for the question. Some offices do offer free consultations. It depends on what that specific chiropractor does. I would recommend calling and asking if the chiropractor does free consultations.

I believe that most chiropractors will offer a free consultation to
patients who have questions. I offer free 15 minute consultation to any
patient who has questions about how we could potentially addressed their
health concerns.
Free consultations are common in chiropractic offices. It is important that every patient make sure that they can connect and trust their chiropractor prior to receiving any care. Our office always offers 30 minute consultation is for no charge so that we can be sure we can help the patient with their health goals and that they are in a place they feel secure and safe so they can heal.

Chiropractic care will certainly be beneficial for your overall health if you do not have any contraindications for it. The only way to know would be to get an initial consultation.

Some offices offer discounted/ free consultation but I would advise you to get a free consultation on the phone to start and have an idea if chiropractic is something you would like to incorporate in your life to keep you in optimal health and keep your body in total harmony with your mind and your environment. I do offer free phone consultation for new patients and I am sure many other providers do too.

Hope this helps
hello- yes free consultations are common to see if you like the doctor and
the office and to see if you can be helped by chiropractic. Hope this

Many times there is no charge to talk. Then some Dr.s charge for every thing they do.
yes we do
Some Chiropractors will, just depends on how they do things
Many offices offer a free or complimentary consultation for prospective new
patients or to previous patients that have a new condition. A consultation
does not take the place of a history or examination but the Doctor can
often determine if the specific type of condition or problem someone is
experiencing is something likely to respond to the type of care that
practitioner is able to offer. Remember that not all Chiropractors
approach a problem in the same manner and there are a number of sub
specialties within the profession of Chiropractic.

Yes frequently In the form of questions and answers
Yes they are. We offer free consultations to determine how we can help you and if you are in the right place. We want to make sure the conditions you have are treatable before you pay for an exam.
I wouldn't say it is common practice, but I know that some clinics do offer free consultations. I will add the Chiropractic care is beneficial not only for musculoskeletal conditions, but for general health. Statistics show that people who are under Chiropractic care have less visits tho the hospital, take less medication, and overall get sick less.
Every chiropractor runs their business differently so some will offer that. Most will talk with you at no charge to see if your condition is something chiropractic could help with.
Some do
In my office it is, all we ask is if you schedule a consultation, let my staff know upfront.

Chiropractic care is excellent for your health. It can remove tightness of the muscle, joints and help boost your immune system.

Chiropractic care would benefit any person from newborns to elders. Free consultation is available through different practices and some places offers simple spine radiographs. Some practices, do a low fee for that first consultation. You need to understand that one free consultation/evaluation does not guarantee a spinal manipulation.
I don't know how common they are, but I have witnessed a few at public events and the chiropractor can provide some general information that is worth knowing, but ultimately is using the opportunity to sell his/her service. I think free consultations never actually end up being free. Go with the old adage "you get what you pay for."
Some do, some don't. It's hit or miss. Call the chiropractor before heading to your first visit and ask. New chiropractors are more likely to offer a free consult, compared to a doctor that is more established.
I do offer a free consultation. Please call my office or schedule online at If you schedule online, choose 'Evaluation' and skip the payment process. I look forward to meeting you.

Absolutely, consultations are always free and I am also willing to look at paperwork, imaging, and even laboratory results.
We do offer a free consult to see if we can help. Typically most DC's do offer this. However, it is an individual policy. It would be a good idea to check with the office you are visiting.
Most chiropractors offer a free consultation for exactly that reason. To see if they are a good fit for your health needs.
Yes, most chiropractic offices will offer a consultation visit at no charge, but I will say if other services are rendered at the visit such as X-ray or exam, then you would probably be charged a fee.
