Inside Chiropractic Technology

A chiropractic technician, also referred to as a chiropractic assistant, works in a chiropractor's office assisting chiropractors in therapies and examinations, as well as performing clerical and administrative tasks. Front office duties often include billing, insurance filing, coding and answering patient questions. Clinical duties can include conducting basic examinations and therapeutic procedures, like physical exams, patient case histories, x-rays and other procedures, under the supervision of chiropractic doctors.
