Can chiropractors order x-rays and lab tests?
Like other health practitioners, chiropractors follow a standard routine to get information needed to diagnose and treat patients. They take the patient’s health history; conduct physical, neurological, and orthopedic examinations; and may order laboratory tests. X rays and other diagnostic images are important tools because of the chiropractor’s emphasis on the spine and its proper function.
Yes. Chiropractors can order diagnostic imaging such as x-rays, CT scans and MRI. Similarly, chiropractors can order lab work and assay panels.
