What you need to know about the maintenance of chiropractic tables
Any chiropractor knows their entire practice is centered around the chiropractic table. It’s the equivalent of a workbench: everything must be in tip-top shape and regularly maintained not only to save on expensive repairs for the chiropractor but also the safety of their patients.
But not all chiropractors choose the same tables and equipment for their offices, which means pieces, parts, mechanics, and maintenance of each one differ. From drop-tables to stationary tables, I can assure you that we’re here for all your maintenance and repair needs.

How often should my chiropractic tables be maintained?
Just like you’d do regular maintenance and oil changes for your vehicle, the same forethought should be put into your chiropractic equipment. As a general rule of thumb, any table that is plugged into the wall should be maintained and serviced by an experienced professional annually. A table that is 100 percent manually operated should be serviced every two years. If you are searching for parts and tables yourself and may not sure what you have or what it’s called, this website just might have an example of your make and model.
