Much like choosing a primary care physician, settling on a chiropractor can be a very personal decision. Should you see a chiropractor at all? If so, how do you decide from all the practices in your area? There’s a lot that goes into a decision like this, and different people often have different criteria when it comes to selecting a chiropractor that meets their needs.

If you’re reading this, then you understand the struggle. Our team here at Wirth Chiropractic sympathizes with you, and we’ve compiled some tips to help you through the process. How do you know if a chiropractor is for you? Let’s find out!

Is Chiropractic for You?

Before you start comparing and contrasting your local chiropractic offices, you may wonder if it’s something you want to pursue in the first place. We strongly recommend that everyone consult a chiropractor at some point in their life. After all, maintenance is just as central to chiropractic care as correction and recovery. But if you’re actively suffering from physical symptoms (headaches, back pain, numbness, immobility, etc.) or mental symptoms (brain fog, anxiety, depression, etc.), then you should definitely consider scheduling a visit.

Tips for Selecting a Chiropractor

Finding a chiropractor that you can trust is essential to the success of your treatment. But it can be quite intimidating to narrow your options. A quick internet search may reveal several in your area. How do you choose? Take a look at the list below for some guidance:

  1. Ask for Referrals. If you trust your doctor enough to provide sound medical advice, then they may be a good source of wisdom when it comes to finding a suitable chiropractor. Ask your primary care physician for a list of local referrals that you might look into.
  2. Evaluate Patient Reviews. You can’t beat the testimony of firsthand experience. Look at some patient reviews and see what people have to say about the establishment.
  3. Research Credential & Experience. Most chiropractors are quite comfortable sharing their experience, training, and credentials. It instills confidence in potential patients to know that a person is knowledgable.
  4. Consider Insurance Coverage. For many, this may be a deal-breaker. Contact the administrative office to see if they will accept your insurance. Chiropractic appointments won’t break the bank, but it can add up over time.
