Need a Chiropractor? Follow Thsi Simpe 5 Step Process

You can't postpone it anymore and have to pay a visit to a chiropracotr. Contrary to what you thought the pain never went away no matter what you did and chiropractic intervention is your only option. If that's the case the following guide will help you pick the best one for your case.

But before I move on with that I want to think about that for a second. Say you are about to buy a car but you want to make sure it's worth it. What would you do in a situation like this? Most likely you will ask people who already have that particular car what they think about it, correct. At least that's what I would do.

I guess you can apply the same strategy when it comes to choosing a chiro. The only thing I would add is to ask a physical therapist, primary care physician or spine specialist for recommendations if you have access to one.

Usually what happens is that there is one doctor that's considered the best in his area. It's easy to find out who he is because his name will be mentioned a few times by different people.

After talking with enough people you would usually have a short list with 2 or 3 names on it.

The first step is to schedule an office visit so you can talk with the doctor (yes, chiropractors are doctors) face to face. Try to figure out if the doctor makes you feel comfortable.

Below is a check list of things you should paying attention to:

1. How friendly the chiropractor and the office staff is.

2. How comfortable you feel talking with the doctor.

3. Was he hesitant while answering your questions like he wasn't sure what exaxtly your problem is and how to treat it.

4. Was he an active listener? Did he ask questions to better understand you and the situation you are in?

5. Can you figure out if he has dealt with a similar case to yours?

Let's say that you liked what you saw. Now is time for the next step. What you want to find out is if there are any disciplinary actions against the chiropractor.

There are many ways to go about it but here is my favorite one ' look for the board that license the chiropractors in your state.

Or just fire up Google/Bing/Yahoo and look up the name of that person. Glance over the first 10 results. In 9 cases out of 10 everything that you need to know would be there.

However, what happens if you have interviewed three chiropractors, researched them and after that you still like them all and can't make a decision.

If they are worth their salt they would have suggested a way for you to be treated. Of the all possible solutions pick the one that's most suitable to you.

Now you have it, at least a starting point to find the best doctor for you.
