Does chiropractic treatment require a referral from a medical doctor?

No, a patient does not need referral by a medical doctor before visiting a Doctor of Chiropractic. 

Chiropractors are primary healthcare professionals and therefore do not require a referral. 

Following a consultation and examination, the Doctor of Chiropractic will arrive at a diagnosis under chiropractic care, or refer the patient to the appropriate health care provider.
