Chiropractors specialize in treating the musculoskeletal system. This includes the skeleton, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, cartilage, and other connective tissues in a human body. Chiropractors can work with patients to improve range of motion and mobility and reduce pain, and chiropractic care has shown to improve balance, coordination, and reaction time.

There is a wide range of costs for chiropractic care in the US, so make sure to check with any chiropractic practice before undergoing treatment.
Without insurance, you will pay between $100 and $150 for a chiropractic visit that includes a full exam and adjustments. This is the average, however, and it is possible to pay as little as $60 in some places or as high as $200 in others.
