How to choose a chiropractor

June 25, 2013 | 0 Comments

Hi, guys. This is Marco Abanico with Chiropractic Television.

When you are in search of a chiropractor, there are a few things that you should be asking in order to figure out whether or not it will be a good fit. Similar to how you choose your dentist or general practitioner, you want to be sure that you pick the right chiropractor for you. There are a few ways that you can narrow down your search, especially once you meet your potential chiropractor.

Questions to ask a chiropractor

  • Ask About Chiropractic Techniques. In any given local area, the chiropractors around town could use completely different techniques or methods to adjust your spine. It’s important to ask each chiropractor about their technique they use and why they believe in it. Some doctors use very physical and forceful methods to adjust. Others, like myself, like to tailor-make the treatment procedures that would be comfortable for you. Learning more about a chiropractor’s technique will help you narrow down your search.
  • Ask About Any Tools or Instruments. Similar to techniques, some chiropractors use only their hands, instruments, or a mixture of the two when delivering the chiropractic adjustment. When you first meet a chiropractor, he should break down the process of your first visit and what to expect in the future.
  • Ask About the Chiropractor’s Experience. Before finalizing your decision on which chiropractic office to use for your personal treatment, ask about your chiropractor’s experience. Has he treated conditions similar to yours in the past? What are previous patients saying about their care? Google his practice and search YouTube to see if his has videos about him or his practice. That way you can get a feel for his knowledge that he conveys to you on screen.

Becoming more educated about your chiropractor before receiving treatment is always a wise decision. It’s very similar to how you would choose any other service in the health care field.
