Spine and musculoskeletal injuries are common. Whether you have suffered the trauma of an accident or have muscular strain, headaches and blurred vision, a chiropractor is a good choice for care. By treating the entire body and returning the skeletal system to correct alignment, most patients recover fully and pain is virtually eliminated. If you are suffering from pain, stiffness, headaches, and other issues, a visit to your medical doctor is merited and should be your first reaction. However, you should also consider seeing a chiropractic doctor. Chiropractors specialize in the spine, nervous system, and musculoskeletal systems of the body. These are the areas that are most affected by the trauma of an automobile accident, and the areas that most often cause issues that are not easily detected.
Selecting the right Chiropractor
It is important that you feel comfortable with your Chiropractor. The practice of chiropractic medicine is a hands-on experience. Here are a few things to consider when you are selecting your chiropractor.
If you have a gender preference regarding medical care, use this to guide you in your choice of Chiropractors. There is a lot of physical contact in the practice of chiropractic medicine. You will need to be comfortable with your chiropractor for long-term treatment.
Ask your family doctor or spine doctor for his or her recommendations. It is important that your entire medical team works well together. This includes all of the medical professionals you access. Chiropractic medicine is effective and popular. Ask your family and friends for their recommendations as well.
- Make an appointment
If you have the time, make an appointment to check out the facility. Speak with the staff to determine if they are friendly, understanding, and professional. Check out the waiting room. Is it comfortable? Does the staff overbook? Is there an unusually long wait time? These things matter when you are in physical discomfort.
- It is a business
Remember that a doctor’s office is a business. While we want to feel cared for and valued, the business end is important. Is the Chiropractor in good standing and do they carry a high rating from the Better Business Bureau? Do they accept your insurance and do you accept their billing policy? How long have they been in business? Are they experienced with accident victims? Are they willing to discuss long-term goals and will they work with you (financially, physically, and intellectually) to accomplish the goals?
