Chiropractors
« on: December 22, 2014, 07:37:11 pm »
Hi all.  I understand that one has to register oneself for medical care. Where do chiropractors fit into the picture? Do they fall within the ambit of state medical care? If so, how does one go about registering and seeing one?

Most of the time you pay for chiropractic consultations. Sometimes your fees can be funded via ACC if your condition is as a result of an injury. Your GP will have to make a diagnosis and refer you first.

Hospitals will have chiropractic professionals available in case of emergencies. But chiropractic is something New Zealanders pay for.
