You and Your Chiropractor

Selecting a chiropractor shouldn’t be like going on a blind date. Your choice of a care provider should be all about knowledge and experience. In a sense it’s like networking for a new job: It helps to ask friends, co-workers and neighbors for recommendations. Remember that like anything in life, what works well for one person may not work well for another. In other words, while recommendations can be worthwhile, it is important to find a chiropractor who can meet your specific needs.

Just Pick Up the Phone

Before your first visit, either pick up the phone or go visit the chiropractor in person. That’s the best way to get an idea of his/her qualifications and hands-on approach. Not to mention getting an impression of the clinic, and techniques used during treatment.

Common sense demands that you talk to or visit at least three chiropractors before making a decision. It’s like purchasing a car or a new home. You don’t settle for the first one you see.

Above all, says, “It is important to feel comfortable with the chiropractor and the clinic to have an overall positive treatment experience. Feeling comfortable may depend on a lot of personal preferences, including details such as how long a patient may typically have to wait in the waiting room or location of the chiropractor’s office.”

Research Counts

Another good source of information in your search is your respective state’s Chiropractic Regulation and Licensing Board, which can usually be found on the state's website. Patients can also check that their chiropractor's college is accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education.

The bottom line is that the chiropractor's role is to suggest the course of action best suited for you and your problems. After that, it’s your decision whether or not to accept that doctor's recommendation for treatment. Speaking of which, there are many different chiropractic techniques. Some doctors, points out SpineUniverse, “perform joint manipulation with their hands only, while others use various instruments.” Additionally, some chiropractors treat using quick but firm manipulation, while others have a lighter touch.

Regarding the right touch, The Joint at Dallas Addison will evaluate your overall condition and tailor their treatment for your particular situation. It all starts with that first visit or phone call.
