Visiting a Chiropractor? Do This First

Share This:

Of course we think Dr. Case is the best chiropractor in Apex, but if you’re thinking of seeing one in general, there are a few steps you should take before you begin treatment.

First, you should ask about the chiropractor’s education and accreditations. Not all chiropractors are created equal! (to learn about Dr. Case’s education and accreditations, click here). For your safety, it is very important that you see someone who has been properly trained in healthy chiropractic techniques.

Second, have a conversation with the chiropractor and be sure to mention any medical conditions you have. If you do have medical conditions, ask whether the chiropractor has specialized training or experience in the condition for which you are seeking care.

Third, ask about typical out-of-pocket costs and insurance coverage. Chiropractic is typically covered by many private health plans, Medicare, and state workers’ compensation systems. But that’s not always the case. It’s good to know what you’re getting yourself into financially right from the start.

Fourth, it’s smart to tell the chiropractor about any medications you take. This includes both prescription or over-the-counter, and dietary supplements. During treatment, if the chiropractor suggests a dietary supplement, ask about potential interactions with your medications or other supplements.

And finally, if you start seeing a chiropractor, let you doctor know. Your doctor should be aware of all of any complementary health approaches you use. By giving them a full picture of what you do to manage your health, it will help ensure coordinated and safe care.

  1. I like what this article mentions about telling the chiropractor about any medications you take. It makes sense that this would be good because it would allow you to get the best care that you can. I’ll have to remember this for my wife because she’s dealing with some neck pain and chiropractic care seems like it’d be helpful.
