Choosing A Cape Girardeau Chiropractor For Optimum Chiropractic Care


Do you want to benefit from the rehabilitative capabilities of this form of alternative medicine? For patients, it is important to know the proper guidelines of choosing a chiropractor to find someone who is a good "fit" with you.

  

I want to share with you the top 5 things you as a future Chiropractic patient should be looking for.  You may ask what qualifies me in helping you look for a good Doctor of Chiropractic or other Natural Health Physician.  Well of course I am a Chiropractor, and second I went through this search myself as I battled through tremendous health concerns of my own.  Now migraine headaches and chronic back problems are a thing of my past.  So here it goes…the top 5 things you should be looking for:

1.  The Chiropractor should RESPECT THE PATIENTS TIME!

Have you ever had the experience of showing up on time for a previously scheduled appointment only to find yourself waiting…and waiting…and waiting…for the doctor?  We both know how frustrating this can be!  In my own opinion this is unacceptable.  Of course, things can go wrong in an office, and at times life can jump out at you and throw out unexpected ups and downs.  This is the time however to inform the patient that you are running late.  In this type of case, I always inform my patients that I am running late and give them the option to reschedule.   

The main point here of course is to prevent it from happening in the first place!  No person loves waiting!  Right?  So when you choose a Cape Girardeau Chiropractor, make sure you are dealing with a doctor who respects the patient’s time as much as his own.  In our busy lives, we are all so pressed for time, it is here when it is a comfort knowing that your Chiropractor values and respects your time too!

2.  Your Chiropractor should respect your WELL BEING!

When you have something in your health that is clearly wrong and needs to be corrected, it is so important that you are dealing with a Cape Girardeau Chiropractor who will tell it to you straight.   This is the time that you need a straight shooter.  I once went to a dentist who was very nice, but he found some things wrong with me teeth and just seemed too timid to tell me the real extent of the problem.  I would much rather a doctor tells me so I can determine and understand all my possible options.

When a patient sees me in my clinic, I promise to respect their well being.  This means first and foremost a detailed exam for the patient so we can fully understand the extent of your problem.  After that detailed exam, you can trust that I will give it to you straight and leave it up to you to decide how you wish to proceed.  Don’t just walk away from a practitioner who will not give you the full report, run.  You need to know your options in plain English.  If you did not fully catch what was going on, he should be more than happy to help you understand your problem better.  When it comes to your pain, to your health, you need solutions and straight conversation.  That is one of the first secrets to getting better fast.

3.  Recommendations and Referrals!

In the perfect world, someone telling you of a trusted Chiropractor is the place to start your search for a good Chiropractor.  This is not always possible I realize.  There are many other ways to find reviews however. 

The second best option as mentioned above is to ask your doctor for reviews or letters of recommendation.  Often times these types of things will be posted on his or her website.  There are multiple other online review sources, such as "Google Places".  If you are looking to find this, just "Google" Cape Girardeau Chiropractic or Cape Girardeau Chiropractor and you will see the "Google Places" top ten list.  Just click on a clinic and you can find some amazing reviews on the Chiropractor you are thinking of seeing. 

4.  The Warning Signs!

You need to know a couple of more things before walking into a Chiropractic office!

These are some of the “danger signs”, if your Cape Girardeau Chiropractor exhibits them, you may want to avoid this doctor:

*Avoid a Chiropractor who merely touches your back or neck to determine if you should have an adjustment.  There are many analytical ways to measure this with instrumentation and diagnostic means.  If he is simply working on you every time you visit his office, you may be questioning how does he know when I am in place or out of place?  Well if he is simply using his hands to determine this, he is probably missing a great deal of information as to how your nervous system is functioning.  Find a Cape Girardeau Chiropractor that has a analytical way to determine this, if it is a good way it should make sense to you and he should be able to show you the checks before and you should be able to see for yourself how they change after!

*Avoid a Chiropractor that forces you to sign a long-term treatment contract.  This is a great way to save money, if YOU choose.  Do not be forced into doing anything that you are not comfortable with.  Chiropractic is very safe, but you have no reason to be tied to a particular chiropractor for any long-term period of time unless your condition requires it.  In my office we have many care options that will suit the patient’s needs first and foremost!

*Avoid a Chiropractor that attempts to discourage you from preventative treatments and health benefits outside of Chiropractic Care, such as adequate nutrition and exercise.  A Chiropractor that is looking out for you, he should at least be open to the possible means of caring for your health condition.

*Avoid a Chiropractor that is making outrageous claims that you realize are not feasible or who attempts to scare you into a treatment plan.  We believe the patient should be given the respect of the proper information on their case, not amplifying the case and trying to scare them into doing what is not best for their health needs.

These are a few tell-tale signs that your Cape Girardeau Chiropractor is more concerned of his pocket book, then the patient’s welfare.

5.  Speed Of Service!

When I first got into practice, I used to spend waaaaaayyyyy to long with my new patients.  It seemed to me that good service meant lengthy service.

My patients have taught me that I was very wrong!  One patient said, “If you wouldn’t mind speeding things up a bit, I will be able to come into the office when I need to.”  That was an eye opener!  This was the moment I realized why banks and place like Starbucks really move quick to help their clients.  I now see that people also wish to get in and out of their doctors visits in a timely fashion.

From that day forth, when it is possible, I have strived to not hold my patients in the office a second longer then they need for proper and complete care.  Since then I have been told many times how much my patients appreciate my efforts to making their visits as smooth with as little waiting as possible.
