So you’ve made the decision to see a chiropractor for treatment related to chronic pain or an automobile accident. You’re in good hands! Chiropractors are extensively trained to treat neuromuscular disorders leveraging precise manipulations of the spine and other joints. Instead of relying on surgery, they look to eliminate pain through non-invasive techniques and whole-body health. But of the many choices, how do you go about selecting the best chiropractor? Following are three tips:
1. Strong Credentials
Chiropractic, as with any medical practice, is constantly evolving and requires ongoing learning. Reputable chiropractors will be eager to share their education, training, and certification background with potential patients. Premier chiropractors will have attended a dedicated school of chiropractic, and maintain memberships in local and national chiropractic associations to stay on top of changes and regulations.
2. Resolves Pain Quickly
It is important to find a chiropractor committed to fully assessing, diagnosing, and treating your condition with the goal of eliminating pain as soon as possible. Nobody wants to continue with treatment indefinitely, and strong chiropractors will prevent that by partnering to develop an upfront treatment plan. Be wary of chiropractors who delay treatment until the second or third visit; an experienced chiropractor should be able to quickly identify the issue, and begin treatment during the first visit to reduce the number of follow-up visits.
3. Personal Comfort
Finding a chiropractor that you are genuinely comfortable with is essential to the success of your treatment. You will need to be at ease discussing your pain, situations that exacerbate it, and other details of your overall health in order to benefit from optimal care. Passionate chiropractors should demonstrate kindness and patience before and during treatment so that patients don’t feel rushed, tense, or further stressed. Find a chiropractor and clinic that feels calming and comfortable to get the most out of your treatment. Lexington Family Chiropractic understands that you are the #1 priority, and we strive to provide superior treatment, experience, and service to our valued patients.
