Many of our patients explain the same scenario after visiting us for a few adjustments and treatments. It usually starts out something like this, “I’m so happy I found you guys! You have no idea what it’s like to try and find a good chiropractor! We tried a few different chiropractors for a few visits each and got discouraged that we weren’t finding what we need. I just wish we knew how to find a good chiropractor without the hassle!” At the Chiropractic Center of Erie and Chiropractic Center of Longmont we know there are great chiropractors out there and we count ourselves among this group. Unfortunately, there are also others that focus more on bringing new patients in the door and less on actually providing the relief these patients need.
At Chiropractic Center of Erie and Chiropractic Center of Longmont we hear these stories and truly feel the same level of frustration. With this in mind, we decided to write about how to find a good chiropractor in Erie and Longmont. We thought who better to help you find a good chiropractor than other good chiropractors. We understand this topic is a little self-serving, and promise that there’s more to this article than “just choose us!” Without further ado, let’s dive in!
ASK FOR RECOMMENDATIONS AND READ REVIEWS ABOUT ERIE AND LONGMONT CHIROPRACTORS!
This step outranks all others in terms of importance. A recommendation from someone you trust carries a lot of weight when helping to find a good chiropractor in Erie and Longmont. These towns, while growing quickly still have a great small-town community feel and mentality. As with any community, the news will spread quickly if a chiropractor isn’t providing great treatment. The opposite holds true as well. A good chiropractor should not only have local coffee shop recommendations, they should have great reviews online for new patients to consider.
LOOK INTO THEIR EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND
Several great schools exist that teach chiropractic care. The important thing to look for isn’t the name of the school, it’s whether or not their school is accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) This accreditation lets students and future patients trust the level of education the doctor received prior to treating patients. They base their accreditation on key values of integrity, accountability, collaboration, quality, and improvement. Furthermore, each chiropractor in Colorado, must meet all state standards for continuing education and more to keep their license.
ASSESS YOUR COMFORT LEVEL WITH THE DOCTOR AND STAFF
Chiropractic care requires a hands-on process in many cases. This means a patient’s comfort with their doctor is critical. Have a conversation with the doctor and discuss what treatment looks like and what to expect during your first few visits. Watch for the relationships between the staff and the doctors. They work with doctors all day and see them in a different light than patients. If the relationships are good throughout the office, that’s a good indicator that doctors don’t just “put on a good face” for the patients, they are genuine through-and-through.
ASK ABOUT THE TREATMENT PROCESS
One of the most important things when considering how to find a good chiropractor is the type of treatment they provide. Where do they focus? Do they focus on providing quick adjustments for simple pain relief or are they focused on healing the body by keeping it aligned? How do they help your body hold your adjustments for the long-term? If they don’t have a plan for helping patients hold their adjustments, a patient can expect to need to visit frequently. At the Chiropractic Center of Erie and Chiropractic Center of Longmont we provide an award-winning treatment process. This treatment process focuses on providing quick relief for pain while also helping patients hold their adjustments by retraining their body to stay in proper alignment.
