Advanced Spine Answers Your Chiropractor Search Questions
When consulting with a chiropractor, there are several questions that you should ask to help ensure you are getting the medical professional that is best suited to you and your needs. Here are a few questions to ask as you try to weed your way through the chiropractors available in your area.
Do You Take X-Rays?
X-rays are used to rule out fractures or other serious problems that must be treated through medical treatment plans other than chiropractic care.
What Techniques Do You Use?
Some chiropractors are proficient in a single technique, but there are many different techniques that can be used to address specific conditions.
How Do You Determine the Number of Visits I Need?
While there are no guarantees regarding the number of visits that will be necessary to achieve the desired results, your treatment plan should provide a general idea of how many visits are likely to be needed. This will give you a better idea of the long-term financial cost as well as the amount of time you will need to dedicate toward treatment.
Will You Put Your Recommendations in Writing?
Putting recommendations in writing helps you to better explore your options before making important decisions about your health.
Do You Have References?
Ideally, the chiropractor should be able to provide you with references for three current patients and two other chiropractors. Call each one to learn more about the chiropractor and to determine if he or she is a good match for you.
Do You Have Payment Plans Available?
Spreading out the cost of your care helps you get the treatment you need without the additional burden of financial stress. At Advanced Spine & Rehab, we strive to provide each of our patients with the most comprehensive treatment plan possible. Contact us to learn more!
