When looking for a Chiropractor, it is important to realize that not all Chiropractors are made the same. In fact, using a poor Chiropractor could leave you worse off than before. Below are some crucial questions to ask before you make a decision.
What techniques do you practice?
A good chiropractor should be proficient in a variety of different techniques. But they should also know that the technique to use depends entirely on the patient. If your chiropractor doesn’t know multiple techniques, there’s a higher probability that they won’t be able to treat your condition appropriately.
How do you track my progress?
The chiropractor could use a variety of methods to track your progress, including computerized evaluation, postural analysis, etc. What’s important is that they have a method, this way you know whether you are improving and if the treatment is worthwhile.
Will you give me your recommendations in writing?
This is important because it allows you to take time to understand and evaluate what your chiropractor is suggesting. It will also give you a picture of what the care will include, how long it will be, and the costs.
Can have your references?
There are few ways better to evaluate the success and capability of a chiropractor than to find out what other patients and doctors have to say. You should try to get at least 5 references, 3 of them should current patients and the other two should be doctors. Chances are if the chiropractor can’t produce these then they are probably not well recommended.
Do you accept Insurance?
Yes we are providers with BC/BS, Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, Medicare, Auto PIP coverage and Workman’s Compensation, and many others. A good chiropractor will accept your insurance and work with you when you need to make payments.
Do you offer a free consultation?
A chiropractor should not expect a patient to sign on for treatment without first speaking with them and visiting the office. Another good thing is that taking a trip to the office will allow you to speak with other patients and see what their experience is like.
