Most common reasons for patient visits

Due to the hectic city life that the Hong Kong people live, Cervical/Upper Thoracic problems and LBP are the most common conditions seen by the DCs. Although alternative health care is getting more popular in Hong Kong , but wellness or maintenance care are still not yet as popular or well known. The public still needs to be educated about this area of preventative care, and why they need it.

Insurance and Fees for DC visits

An average treatment fee in Hong Kong is about HK$350.00 - 500.00 (US$44 - 64.) per visit. Most of the practices in Hong Kong are running a predominantly cash practice, as insurance coverage for chiropractic is still not widespread in Hong Kong . In addition, chiropractors don't see as many Personal Injury (PI) or Workers' Compensation cases compared to other parts of the world. Most of the chiropractors in Hong Kong either have their own practices, or share, but there are few practices that take on associates. Most of the expatriate chiropractors start their practices as an associate because they need a sponsor to be able to get their work permit.
