    Default Can Chiropractors give Dr's notes?

    A bit of background - I have spondylolisthesis . It was made worse by a car accident in July so I'm currently in physiotherepy/seeing a chiropractor regularly.

    On the weekend I cracked/strained/pinched something and I can't even begin to describe the pain - excrutiating doesn't even begin to describe it. I went to physio today and it didn't help at all.

    I'm supposed to present an assignment tomorrow and I really, really don't think I can.

    I won't be able to get in with my doctor in the morning, but can my chiropractor write me a note to say I need to postpone my presentation? Or should I just suck it up?

    I don't know if they all do it, but they can do! I am a supervisor and have to deal with sick calls, etc. where I work and I have received notes from chiros that state the person is unable to perform their work duties for medical reasons.
