Common Chiropractic Conditions

Chiropractic care is widely recognized as a safe and non-invasive method for addressing neuro-muscular conditions. It serves as an alternative approach to alleviate pain in muscles, joints, bones, as well as connective tissues such as ligaments, cartilage, and tendons. In certain instances, chiropractic treatment may be combined with other conventional therapies to optimize outcomes. Recent changes in Medicare and private payer insurance requirements and regulations have added complexity to chiropractic medical billing and coding. To ensure accurate claims, minimize claim denials, and receive proper reimbursement, chiropractors must update their billing workflows.

In this blog, we discuss the ICD-10 codes for some common conditions that chiropractors treat.
