How Can I Find the Chiropractor Best for Me?

Finding the right doctor of chiropractic is similar to finding the right dentist or medical doctor. Consideration must be given to technique, expertise, specialty and various subjective issues such as personality, communication skills and health care philosophy.

The best way to find the chiropractor that's right for you is to spend a little time. First use the database on this website to locate the chiropractors near you. Then, review the information they provide through their websites, local advertising, etc. You also may want to check with friends, neighbors and co-workers who may recommend one doctor of chiropractic over another.

Finally, ask for an appointment. Let the doctor know of your needs and your long-term health goals. Let the doctor examine you and share his/her findings. Don't be afraid to ask questions. In numerous studies, doctors of chiropractic have been shown to be among the most patient-centered health care providers.

Usually, within the first few visits you'll know if this is the chiropractor for you.
