Time to call a chiropractor? But with so many options available, how do you know the best one for you? The right chiropractor can make a significant difference to how you manage your back and neck pain, but don’t just assume that any chiropractor is suited to you. Your health is precious; and so decisions regarding it shouldn’t be taken lightly. To ensure you choose a good chiropractor, we’ve listed a few questions to ask before making your first appointment:
Do you offer initial consultations?
Find out if the chiropractor offers initial consultations. This way, you know that your questions will be answered before you begin treatment. Maybe you have some questions along the lines of: How much experience do you have treating my condition? Experience counts for a lot! Regardless of how much a chiropractor has studied a particular condition, the amount of hands-on experience is what matters the most. What is your technique? Different chiropractors prefer different techniques – some may opt for more forceful manipulation while others may prefer a more gentle and gradual approach. It’s important that you discuss your own preferences with a chiropractor before treatment begins.
How long will my treatment last?
It’s not typically good practice for a chiropractor to offer you a time-specific treatment plan. Giving you an exact time line of how long your treatment will take to work may be a sign that the chiropractor is more interested in making appointments than helping you to heal.
Will I Need an X Ray?
A good chiropractor will only recommend that you undergo x rays if there is a valid reason for doing so. Be cautious if you are offered x rays as part of special offer or deal. They should only ever be carried out if it is absolutely necessary.
