With chiropractic care being the 2nd largest primary healthcare provider in the western world. it's important for patients to know how to choose the right chiropractor. Though the philosophies are similar, not all chiropractors are the same.  Chiropractors seem to be on every block.  Patients are recognizing the effectiveness of chiropractic care, but deciding which chiropractor to see is often what keeps patients from taking that first important step.  Chiropractic care is a natural option for healthcare that gets to the root of your ailments by allowing the nervous system to do it's job, instead of treating your symptoms with prescriptions or surgery. It's naturally what your body craves.  But how do you choose the right one?  There are many factors to consider, but it is helpful to start with three key factors.  First, ask around.  People will tell you if they're happy or not.  Ask questions about what they like best about their chiropractor, if the doctor takes time with them, how they feel when they get an adjustment, and if they're getting the results that they expect.  Ask if they're truly feeling better because of their treatment.  Word of mouth is the perfect first step in finding the right chiropractor.  Secondly, determine what types of techniques the chiropractor is practicing.  Many times the techniques sound similar, but the effectiveness is what makes the difference.  Does the doctor do primarily manual adjustments, the pop and crack method, utilizing his/her entire body to make your adjustment?  This can be effective for some, and does prompt the body to recognize the adjustment, however, many find that this is more of a shotgun approach to chiropractic care.  The body experiences it's own trauma throughout the day as we sleep, use our cell phones, look at our computer screen, slouch in our vehicle, trip or slip on things, play sports, have auto or work accidents, etc. so an adjustment should not add more trauma.  Finding a chiropractor that utilizes low-force, precise techniques will be more effective as it addresses the exact vertebrae causing the ailments.  A good chiropractor will know how to do this and you'll be in for a treat, rather than a wrestling match.  Chiropractors who are versed in precise techniques, like the Blair Upper Cervical method, can effectively treat many of your health issues, like migraines, headaches, dizziness, numbness or tingling in the fingers, and many other ailments that cannot be specifically addressed with general chiropractic.  Third, does the chiropractor take time with you.  In our fast paced medical world, doctors often only have a few minutes with you and you walk away feeling like a number in the system. A good chiropractor allocates the time necessary for a thorough consultation and analysis of the entire body, to identify all of the ailments you're experiencing, and then do the necessary examination and x-rays to assess your treatment and plan for bringing your body back into wellness. Your whole body can benefit from chiropractic care with the right chiropractor, one who is skilled at adjusting all of the bones of the body, to address not only spinal issues, but also those effected by the other many bones in the body.  Make sure your new chiropractor can adjust your sinuses and ears when you have a cold, can adjust your feet and ankles when you sprain your ankle, can adjust your neck properly to eliminate headaches, and can provide the care that is tailored to your health, and the prevention of future degeneration so that you can stay mobile and healthy throughout life.  These three factors are why many of our patients choose Dr. Collin Struble DC CME in Boise, Idaho as the right chiropractor for them.  Find out what they have to say by Googling The Wellness Center of Boise reviews.
