In brief: Depends

This would depend on the state and country, but in general, licensed chiroprators in most states in the U.
S. Can order mris of the spine.

But be aware that insurance companies may not pay for an MRI regardless of who orders it! MRIs should be used only for specific purposes, and when other imaging tests and exam findings aren't enough. They are very costly and overused. Make sure an MRI is covered before you have the test or you will owe several thousand dollars!
