What to Look for When Choosing a Chiropractor

Chiropractic is an incredible alternative to traditional medicine. Many seek out chiropractors to maintain their health while avoiding invasive surgeries and medicines. However, finding the right chiropractic for you and your family may feel like a daunting task. Luckily, the Chiropractic Center of Erie and the Chiropractic Center of Longmont know what to look for when choosing a chiropractor! This article will give you the tips you need to make sure that you’re going to the perfect chiropractor for your needs!

References and Reviews

One of the best ways to check the quality of a chiropractor is through their reviews.  Bad reviews for a chiropractor can be telling of how the chiropractor runs their practice and treats their patients. Try to avoid any chiropractors with low review scores. On the flip side, good reviews are a mark of success for any chiropractor! High review scores show that a chiropractic practice knows what it’s doing, does excellent work, and takes care of its patients! If you’re looking for a chiropractor, make sure to check their reviews!

Credentials and Experience

Chiropractors, just like any other health professional, have to go through many years of schooling and rigorous testing to ensure they are proficient at their craft. With a little bit of research, you can check the credentials of a chiropractor before you go to see them. However, many chiropractors are proud of the work they’ve put into their discipline and will happily discuss their experience. Most chiropractors continue their learning throughout their career so, like a fine wine, they just get better with age! Checking a chiropractor’s credentials can be a great way to help decide which chiropractor to choose for your healthcare journey!

Treatment Technique

While all chiropractic practices will offer adjustments, some may offer additional services that others don’t. Take dry needling for example. Dry needling is an amazing technique that can be used in a large variety of ways. However, not every chiropractor is a dry-needling expert. If you’re looking for a specific treatment, like dry needling, then make sure the chiropractor does it. Always make sure to talk with your chiropractor about available treatments to see if they offer anything special!

Personal Connection

One thing that may get overlooked when seeking a chiropractor  is your personal connection with the practitioner. Finding an incredible chiropractor is great, but if you don’t feel comfortable around them it can be difficult to get proper treatment. When you first meet a chiropractor, you may feel some nervousness. However, that should fade away. If you are avoiding chiropractic care because of the practitioner you’ve been seeing, it’s time to find a new one!


While finding a chiropractor can be a daunting task, keeping a few key points in mind can make it much easier. Make sure to look at the chiropractor’s reviews and referrals, look into their credentials, and the different treatments the chiropractor offers. Also, meet with the chiropractor to see if you can have a personal connection with them, which can make your treatments much smoother in the long run. Once you’ve found a chiropractor who has checked off these boxes, you’ll be ready for your chiropractic journey!
