When should you see a chiropractor?

Patients frequently present with complaints that they have been experiencing for weeks, months and even years. Sadly, much of their suffering and possibly a great deal of their degeneration most likely would have been reduced or eliminated with prompt care.

According to the Chiropractic Rehabilitation Association, the following 5 situations as to when an individual should seek out a chiropractor with a complaint:

  1. All traumatic joint injuries: All injuries to a joint and its ligaments should be examined by a chiropractor because these injuries have the potential of becoming permanent and debilitating if proper treatment is not administered.
  2. Any injury accompanied by severe pain: Pain is a message that something is wrong. Blocking the pain does not correct the problem.
  3. Any pain in a joint, muscle or bone that lasts for than two weeks: Persistent pain may be an indication of a more serious problem or a sign of improper healing.
  4. Any injury that doesn't heal in three weeks: Again, if an injury does not heal in three weeks, there may be an underlying structural abnormality.
  5. Any injury that returns after rest: When pain returns after rest alone and without any treatment it is usually a sign of structural defect.

Do I need a referral to see a chiropractor?

The only health  insurance plans which require a referral from your primary care doctor are those under Keystone Health Plan. Medicare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Personal Choice and all most all of the other local plans do not require referrals for chiropractic care. Some primary providers may require a patient with Keystone Health Plan  as their health insurance to be seen in their office before issuing a referral. 
Additionally, those on work comp must be seen by a panel doctor in the first 90 days of care and then can choose any doctor they want.
