I need to see a chiropractor for several issues. I think I have put this off far too long. How do I find a good chiropractor? Better yet, can anyone suggest a place?
There are several ways you can find a chiropractor. You can ask your family doctor to recommend one for you. You can also ask friends. Perhaps they are seeing one themselves or maybe it is a family member who is.
You can check reviews online. Take the reviews with a pinch of salt though. I also suggest that you check out several review sites. You just want to get a general sense.
If a chiropractor gets too many negative reviews, stay clear! Sometimes, people can give a negative review based on a small thing.
I have personal experience with several chiropractors. Let me tell you that they are not all the same. Some can be quite sharp and abrupt.
One chiropractor I saw would get me out as quickly as possible. She would touch me here and there and say we were done. Whenever I had questions, she had this look on her face like she was being put out. She did not want to spend a single second more if she did not need to.
I eventually saw another chiropractor. She was great. She was polite, spent time with me, answered questions and gave me good advice. I liked her. The previous one seemed interested in money, not my health. I suggest you give Chiro-Med Rehab Centre a call. Check them out. I think you will be happy. If not, you can keep searching.
You need to see someone who is thorough. I agree with the previous post, sometimes, they can be a little funny. I had a similar experience myself.
Listen, if you see someone and you are not happy, you can always walk away and find someone else, so don’t worry. Make sure that they examine you properly, perhaps take x-rays and do other tests. Unfortunately, you have to pay for this unless you have insurance.
However, only if they know what the problem is can they treat you properly. If they don’t test thoroughly, then I suggest you see someone else.
Make sure that the chiropractor you see will make the time to give you a detailed explanation of the treatment.
Feel free to ask questions. It is your right. Besides, you are paying for it. Understand what is happening and what is trying to be achieved.
You should also be advised on how to maintain things between treatments. If you are doing something wrong, they should tell you to change your habits.
After your initial visit, your chiropractor should make a plan of treatment for you. This should be aimed at the long term, but it should also initially make you feel better.
Whatever problem you have, this plan should help prevent a problem from recurring. This will help you feel better in the long run. You need to follow the chiropractor’s advice. It’s one thing to see him or her, but if you don’t listen to advice, it can impede progress.
