Chiropractic care is a safe and non-invasive method of promoting not only mobility of the joints and muscles, but overall health. Selecting the right chiropractor for you is a personal decision, and the following are a few of the factors you may wish to consider when making that decision.
1. Areas of specialization
Are you looking for a chiropractor only for yourself, or are you looking for someone who can treat the whole family? Some chiropractors work only with adults, while others – like our in-house chiropractor here at Giggly Panda have specializations working with infants, toddlers, neo-natal, and post-partum. If you are looking for someone with one or more of these areas of specialty, you want to make sure they have the proper skills and training as an infant’s spine will respond to the gentlest of pressure.
Another great consideration when selecting the best chiropractor near you is referrals. If you have friends and family members who see a chiropractor regularly, you may want to ask them who they see. Or alternatively, if you are not comfortable asking the people you know, you can always look up reviews on websites to see what others are saying about a particular chiropractor.
While gender may not play a role in the skill of your chiropractor, it may very well play a role in your level of comfort with them. Chiropractor care involves touch and you need to be able to relax while your chiropractor is working on you. Furthermore, you will also need to discuss your personal health information with that person – so if you are more comfortable with one gender over another, you should choose a chiropractor of that gender.
4. Communication Style
A chiropractor is a health professional and as such, they need to be someone with whom you can communicate effectively. When you visit a chiropractor for the first time, you should evaluate their communication style to help you determine whether they are someone you wish to continue to see. Are they open to your questions? How effectively do they communicate with you?
