Be sure to not let proximity of a clinic be the only factor in deciding on where to go to seek chiropractic care. And don’t be fooled by flashy advertisements or large signs. Marketing may be useful to attract new and local patients, but it’s what is inside the office that really matters. Here are 3 pointers to take into account while choosing the right chiropractor for you.
- Ask Your Friends. Get the opinion of someone whom you trust, and who shares the same views on wellness as yourself. Ask about service quality, rates, the doctor’s health philosophies and if they are aligned with your own.
- Meet The Doctor. Most clinics will offer a consultation free of charge. Make sure to make your first visit as productive as possible. Do you communicate well with the doctor? Do they seem rushed? You want to be confident in your chiropractor’s skills, and ability to coach and mentor you to get to a better state of health.
- Ask About costs of recommended treatment. If you are seeking chiropractic care for a specific ailment or health problem, your insurance may only cover a portion of your expenses. If you do not have any symptoms, your insurance may not cover any kind of wellness care. After your consultation, the chiropractor should explain to you a proposed care package, and will probably discuss options even after your insurance is finished. Look for a provider that will not just give you a recommended care plan based on what your insurance covers. The doctor you choose should recognize your condition and is straight forward with you about what it will take to correct and stabilize your condition even after your insurance has been depleted.
