What is one chiropractic technique you could do without, and why?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
There are many different chiropractic techniques and you will certainly not be expected to enjoy, or agree with, all of them. When you answer this question be sure to have a full understanding of the chiropractic techniques that this particular clinic specializes in. You don't want to talk your way out of the position by mentioning a core technique that they rely on.

Answer Example
"I prefer low force chiropractic techniques versus spinal manipulation. Some people really enjoy the aggressive cracking; however, I usually use this as a last resort for my patients."
