Top 4 Considerations When Choosing a Chiropractic Office

Top 4 Considerations When Choosing a Chiropractic Office

I get many new patients in my Newmarket chiropractic office who have been suffering or feeling like they have been slowly getting worse for many years with various ailments.  When I ask them what they have tried to do to overcome this, I find out that they have ALL tried several things which resulted in limited improvement.  My next question is what was your diagnosis when you sought the help of the practitioner that wasn’t able to help you?  Blank stare.  This is a problem – if you cannot be shown with certainty what the cause of your problem is and understand it please seek the help of someone who can.  Without finding the cause, it is impossible to have a solution.  You have to be your own health advocate because no one cares more about your health than you do, so knowing the cause (diagnosis) of your problem should be paramount before agreeing to any type of potential solution.

When a patient of mine is relocating and is choosing a new chiropractic office in their new town or city, these are the questions I tell them to ask before going:

  1. Will there be objective testing (thermography and x-ray) done at your initial visit and periodically throughout your care so that you can see your results? Will there be a recovery plan laid out in order to get you to where you want to be?
  2. Does the office specialize in one or two things? You want someone who is proficient at adjusting if you are looking for spinal correction and it should be the only focus.  An office that throws everything (multiple therapies) at you in hopes something works is hoping and guessing – there should be no guessing.
  3. Does the doctor advocate some active participation in your care – e.g. provides you with home rehab instructions? Maximum recovery in the shortest amount of time requires that you to do a little bit of work in your recovery.
  4. Does the office seem to be up to date? Look around the office and see if there appears to be investment in the equipment, office space, and the team of people who work there.  Continual investment means the office is keeping up with current trends.

Getting the answers to these questions that satisfy you, is the most important thing when trying to find the right solution to your problem.  Today, with the technology available, there need not be any guessing in your health.  Seek a chiropractic office that fits with your goals and be confident once you have considered these questions above.  Your recovery and quality of life depends on it.

Be well,
