It’s hard to find a good chiropractor.
Especially, if you’re a consumer with little to no experience with chiropractic.
It’s also hard to know who to trust.
Chiropractic gets a bad rap. Some of it is just, but a lot of it is unfair.
Some traditional chiropractors have gotten into trouble in the past by claiming they can “fix” or “treat” any number of pains/ problems.
Sometimes this can work out, but sometimes it doesn’t…because there are a lot of factors involved in health.
As a Neuro-Structrual Chiropractic office, we understand that we can’t be all things to all people.
Not every problem is a nervous system problem. For example, if your tooth aches we’re probably not the right office for you.
Even with an issue like back pain…
We have hundreds of cases that have had amazing results. But every single one of these cases had problems with the function of their nervous systems.
When you’re looking for a good chiropractor, I think it’s important you understand what your goals are. Are you looking to get short-term-pain relief? Do you want to fix the underlying problem? Or, are you hoping to be healthier overall?
If your answer is “Yes” to the first question, you may be better searching out a Traditional Chiropractic office. In these clinics you will most likely be seen and manipulated/adjusted on the same day. You may be asked to come back one or two more times to get the short-term relief you’re after.
If your answer is “No” to the first question, but “Yes” to one or both of the next questions, you may be better off going to a Neuro-Structural chiropractic office.
Your experience will be much different in this type of clinic.
1) You will undergo a significant amount of testing/analysis to measure the function of your nervous system and structure.
2) There are multiple factors involved in health, and most likely your specific health issue. In an office like this, expect to learn strategies and techniques to fulfill all the requirements for your body to be healthy.
3) It may take a number of visits to correct the underlying problems in your spine and nervous system. But that time and money invested will save you in the long run.
Looking for a good chiropractor can be challenging, but as long as you understand your goal and their approach, you should have an easier time identifying what will be a good fit.
