How you prepare

By Mayo Clinic Staff

No special preparation is required before a chiropractic adjustment.

Chiropractic treatment may require a series of visits to your chiropractor. Ask your care provider about the frequency of visits and be prepared to work them into your schedule. It might be a good idea to bring your calendar along or have an idea of when in your schedule you can fit in visits to the chiropractic office.

Many health insurance policies cover chiropractic care, but you might want to check to see how many treatments are covered in a given time period.
