Traditional medicine is still an important part of your life, but when medications stop working or have severe side effects, you may turn to chiropractic care as an alternative method of treatment. Chicago chiropractors are plentiful, so choosing one can seem like a daunting task, but there is help available.
The easiest way to find options is to ask your friends, colleagues and anyone else you trust. While most won’t seek chiropractic care and won’t be able to help, you’ll likely get a few tips from fellow friends. Supplement that list with a quick online search and you’ll have a variety of options from which to choose.
It’s always best to choose someone nearer to home when possible. You’re more likely to go since you may have three to four treatments a week in the beginning.
It’s important to get a good vibe when you first talk to the chiropractor. Chiropractic care is more intimate than you’re probably used to and the doctor will likely touch your hands, neck, back and hips during treatment.
However, you should also feel comfortable with the receptionist or nurse because they will be applying the electric pads and working the electricity for the stimulation therapy, so you’ll be conversing with them, and they will be touching your low or upper back, as well.
Insurance companies are starting to come around and start covering chiropractic care. Some offer excellent plans with very low co-payments while others have such high requirements that it’s almost impossible to get help. If you have insurance, it’s best to ask before you seek treatment. Otherwise, ask about sliding scale fees and payment plans.
