Do You Need A Referral To See A Chiropractor?


Should You Consult Your Medical Professional?

“Please consult your medical professional before doing ________.”

We hear this all the time on TV, internet and radio, but is it really necessary?

Hi, my name is Dr. Chris from Cameron Chiropractic, and today I would like to dispel this myth.

Nope — You Don’t Need A Referral To See A Chiropractor!

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good idea to talk to your doctor first, but it’s not the case when it comes to seeing a chiropractor.

You do not need a referral from a medical doctor to see a chiropractor.

In fact, when it comes to issues like back pain, neck pain, headaches, and sciatica, a chiropractor is a great place to start.

Medical Doctors vs Chiropractors

The reason for this is because a medical doctor focuses on medication to temporarily block the pain, but as a chiropractor, I focus on the underlying mechanics of the problem.

Medications obviously have their time and place, but when there’s a mechanical or structural problem with how the bones of the spine, the nerves, or the muscles are working, then chiropractic is a safe, effective solution.

At Cameron Family Chiropractic, our goal is to help you to avoid persistent pain without relying on medication. To learn more, check out the rest of our website,
