The Top 4 Ways to Choose The Best Chiropractor For You


Chiropractic Raleigh NC Car Accidents and Whiplash

Whether you just moved from out of state or have recently moved to another part of town and are looking for a Chiropractor - finding a good Chiropractor near you can be a confusing and challenging task.

Chiropractic care includes many different techniques, costs, and approaches leaving the consumer confused and weary.

Here are the top four considerations to keep in mind when choosing a new Chiropractor.

1. Does The Chiropractor Take My Insurance?

This should be at the top of the consideration list when looking for a new Chiropractor. While most Chiropractors do take health insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, some do not. The ones that do not typically require purchasing large amounts of treatment upfront where payments are broken up into monthly payments. Others require a membership where there is a monthly fee. The cost per treatment may be lower but there is also a monthly fee for access to the clinic whether you use the service that month or not.

If you're involved in a car accident or work injury, finding a chiropractic clinic experienced in billing third-party payers is important. In most circumstances, the worker's compensation insurance or car insurance will cover reasonable and medically necessary treatment after a car accident or work-related injury. But again, only a percentage of chiropractic offices are experienced in these types of billing matters.

At Carolina ChiroCare and Rehab we are Chiropractors who accept Blue Cross Blue Shield, Anthem, Cigna, Aetna, Medicare, and United Healthcare health insurance. Our expert billers are very experienced in billing third-party insurances after a car accident or work injury. Here is a list of insurances we accept at our Chiropractor's office.

2. The Chiropractors' Specialty Or Technique

In chiropractic, you will find many different specialties and techniques. If you're an athlete, you may want to find a chiropractor who has special training and experience working with athletes. Some chiropractors specialized in treating only certain parts of the spine, like the Atlas. Other Chiropractors have a great deal of experience treating post-traumatic injuries in med-legal areas. These chiropractors may have great experience testifying in court and navigating through challenging medical-legal insurance matters that can come up after an injury.

Some Chiropractors specialize in using machines to do the adjusting part. This may be better for the patient who is hesitant or afraid to hear their joints cracking. Other patients prefer manual adjustments done by hand and should ensure that the new chiropractor is experienced and trained in manual chiropractic adjustments.

3. The Chiropractor's Location and Hours

This should be important when choosing a new Chiropractor. Ultimately, most chiropractic treatment requires a few weeks to a few months to see results. If the location is not convenient the patient is much less likely to be able to comply with the treatment plan. If the chiropractor's office closes at 5 o'clock and you get off work at 5 o'clock you simply will not be able to make your required treatment.

4. Does The Chiropractor Offer Other Services Like Physiotherapy Or X-Ray?

Many Chiropractors only offer adjustments to the spine. Many health conditions like nerve pain, sciatica, chronic headaches, and disc-related issues respond better when chiropractic adjustments are combined with physical therapy like exercises, stretches, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound therapy, traction therapy, or massage therapy.

Finding a new Chiropractor experienced with advanced diagnostics like X-ray, MRI, ultrasound, basic lab work or CT scans should be taken into consideration. Many chiropractic offices have X-ray on-site and some do not. If your conditions require an X-ray you will have to make another appointment offsite which may be inconvenient for your schedule.

Many of these items discussed above will have an impact on how many visits to the Chiropractor it will take until you feel better. Read more here.
