It seems like you can find a San Pedro chiropractor on every corner, but how do you find the best chiropractic treatment for you? With this in mind, here are…
You’ve probably heard horror stories from your friends about a chiropractor who made them feel worse! Don’t let this happen to you. Unfortunately, there are good and bad chiropractors out there.
To avoid pain, conduct some research to find a medical professional who has the appropriate licenses, training and experience for your specific needs. Then, check with your friends, work associates and family members for referrals. You want to get as much information as possible before you make an initial appointment.
After you find a chiropractor in your local, San Pedro area, schedule a time to talk with him or her privately. Your first consultation should not cost you anything, and you should get all of your questions answered.
In addition to creating your own list of questions, you may want to ask the following:
From this information, you will have a better understanding of exactly what the chiropractor plans to do, how long it will approximately take to feel better and how much it will cost.
When you are finished with your initial interview, you should have a good feeling about the doctor and whether or not you want to pursue the treatment he or she suggests. If you feel uncomfortable, look for another doctor.
Today, chiropractic care is about much more than getting chiropractic adjustments. Your chiropractor should suggest an overall approach to better health which may include different treatments. This may involve therapeutic massage, physical therapy, Pilates, personal training, MUA, nutrition changes, and more.
If you want to heal faster and feel better, look for a chiropractor who looks at your overall health condition and provides helpful tips based on this information. You also want to work with someone who communicates well with your regular medical doctor.
Before you choose a chiropractor in the San Pedro area, conduct research and ask people for good referrals. Make a list of questions to ask and get answers on your initial appointment.
A good chiropractor will listen to your specific needs, ask questions and look at your overall, health conditions. From there, he or she will provide a treatment program that is unique to your healing goals.
With this in mind, I invite you to come in for an initial evaluation and check out our new facilities at San Pedro Pain and Wellness to see if we are right for you!
