Chiropractor Clinics in Hong Kong

Sitting at a desk all-day? Having back or neck pain? Seeing a chiropractor can help you for these but also for many different conditions. Here is the expert guide to chiropractic in Hong Kong!

 

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a type of alternative medicine focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of the musculoskeletal system with mechanical manipulation. It is very well known in the US, Canada and Australia. Chiropractic treatments usually involve a hands-on approach with the practitioner opting for manipulation of the spine, joints and tissue for therapeutic use.

Despite its differences in fundamental beliefs with mainstream medicine, results from research and experiments have shown the effectiveness of chiropractic in relieving stress and treating a number of issues such as lower back pain, headache and numbness of the limbs.

 

How to choose a Chiropractor in Hong Kong?

There are currently 229 registered chiropractors in Hong Kong. Chiropractic in Hong Kong is overseen by the Chiropractors Council, “established by the Laws of Hong Kong under the Chiropractors Registration Ordinance in 1993”. The main function of the Chiropractors Council is to “examine and verify the qualification” of applicants and to “oversee disciplinary offences” in order to ensure the reliability and quality of treatments to patients.

All practicing chiropractors in Hong Kong have to be registered with the Chiropractors Council. You can find a complete list of all registered chiropractors in Hong Kong here.

 

How much does it cost to see a Chiropractor in Hong Kong?

Chiropractors in Hong Kong only operate within the private sector. In Hong Kong the cost of seeing a chiropractor varies greatly (just like for other health practitioners), and it largely depends on clinics’ locations. While the Hong Kong Chiropractors Association states that the average treatment fee is about HK$350 to $500, our research reveals that consultations in premium locations can go up to HK$1,600.

Does insurance cover chiropractic treatments?

According to our partner AD MediLink, local medical coverage may cover chiropractic, but you should be cautious of sub-limits as they may be very low. Most international insurance plans cover alternative medicines including chiropractic. Depending on the plan and insurer, a GP referral letter may be required to receive reimbursement. If you have insurance questions, contact AD MediLink’s healthcare and health insurance experts at [email protected].
