What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
I would look for providers that have advanced post graduate degrees such as Diplomates of the American Board of Chiropractic Orthopedics, Board of Chiropractic Radiologists, Board of Chiropractic Sports Practitioners or Board of Chiropractic Neurology. These individuals have an additional 3 years of training beyond their chiropractic education.
If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
I would identify practices that perform a thorough evaluation and only complete x-rays to identify fractures, tumors, arthritis or infections. They do not take x-rays to locate vertebral subluxations (vertebrae out of place). Once your condition has been identified and diagnosed a 1-3 month treatment plan is recommended. It is very difficult if not impossible to know what treatment would be needed 4-5 months out.
What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
What is your educational background? How often and for what purpose do you take x-rays?
Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
My work stands out because of the 25+ years of experience in the chiropractic and 15+ years in the acupuncture profession. In addition our office provides a multidiscipline approach to your health to include chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, Pilates, physical therapy, nutritional, Chinese herbal medicine and homeopathy.
What do you like most about your job?
What I enjoy most about my job is having numerous options to help patients and do not have to rely solely on chiropractic manipulations.
What questions do customers most commonly asked you? What’s your answer?
One of the most commonly asked questions is do you think you can help relieve my symptoms. I answer with let’s determine the cause of your condition and then I will let you know if I can help you or would you have better results with a different type of practitioner.
