I’m new in town, and I’m looking for a chiropractor that I can count on. I checked with Dex and there are 7 clinics in town. How can I make the best choice? All I know is that I want to get better as fast as possible rather than getting strung along until my insurance is tapped.
4 Questions to Ask When Shopping for a
Reliable Chiropractor in Little Falls MN
1) Ask your family, friends or co-workers who they see and whether or not they feel they can count on their chiropractor or not. Either way, ask why?
Typically our friends, family and co-workers are the best source of trustworthy information, as they have nothing invested in the chiropractic clinic. But, they have the experience of success or otherwise with their chiropractor. Most of “Dr. D’s” patients came to her on a recommendation from a family member, friend or co-worker. Others have heard of her “practical and cooperative” approach for getting folks better as quickly as possible.
2) How long they have been in practice?
Let’s face it experience is worth a million, but it’s not the end all. Newer chiropractors may have the benefit of new research, science and techniques. However, chiropractors are required to do a number of continuing education units every year to help keep them current and informed in such areas. Experience, on the other hand, means they may have established cooperative working relationships with other healthcare practitioners such as medical physicians, massage therapists, physical therapists, as well as, other chiropractic colleagues that they coordinate efforts with to ensure that a patient gets the best care from all angles to help quickly resolve their condition. You can count on that at Paradox Chiropractic!
3) Do they have other specialized training beyond chiropractic to offer you?
Sometimes other adjunctive or complimentary methods or treatments combined with chiropractic will make the big difference in your getting better sooner versus later. You can count on that at Paradox Chiropractic, as Dr. DeAnn Adams has training in acupuncture, Applied Kinesiology, Upledger’s CranioSacral Therapy to mention a few of the adjunctive tools she can incorporate into your chiropractic care plan. For more information on these techniques and therapies go to our Services for Humankind page.
4) Do they take the time to listen to you and ensure that your questions are answered and that you understand what your treatment plan is and what your responsibility will be in that plan?
A resounding yes to this question is vital if you desire to get better as quickly as possible. Your Chiropractor should sit down and explain what your treatement plan will be, as far as, type of treatment and frequency of treatment by them and what your responsiblity will be in your goal to feel better. You may need to ice or do some exercises, as part of your responsibility. A reliable Doctor of Chiropractic knows your health goals are realized by teamwork between you and them. The Doctor should also let you know what alternative plan s/he has in mind, should you not be promptly responding to this plan. For instance, does your case suggest the need for diagnostic imaging, physical therapy or medical attention along with your chiropractic care to help you attain your optimal health? These topics require some time and attention and you should be able to count on your Chiropractor to address them. Dr. DeAnn Adams’ patients will most likely tell you that she ensures that her patients understand and are satisfied with their care and treatment plans.
