How Do You Choose a Chiropractor or Acupuncturist?

Chiropractor and Acupuncturist Chapel Hill, NC

Your decision to receive chiropractic or acupuncture care is a good one. A chiropractic physician or an acupuncturist are licensed healthcare professionals, both fields with a strong history of caring and healing the sick and injured. Many people wonder how to choose a practitioner and how to schedule that first appointment. The decision to select a particular practice is personal. Many people look to their alternative medicine provider for help and guidance over time, and it is essential to be comfortable with your decision.

Many people seek advice from their friends and loved ones or other healthcare providers regarding which chiropractor or acupuncturist to choose. Use this method in addition to different ways to find the help you need. Other ways to find a chiropractor or acupuncturist may be to check online reviews, ask your insurance for participating providers, and contact the Better Business Bureau. Former and current client reviews should be mostly positive and give you insight into the practitioner’s business. The insurance plan lists businesses that accept that insurance which may be significant. So-called ‘participating providers’ agree to take the insurance plan allowable rate for specific services and generally conform to bill insurance for you. Look for information about HSA or FSA accounts if you have those.

A practice’s website should be easy to navigate to find information such as address, phone number, and email, services offered and conditions treated, office photos, and Doctor or practitioner biography. Additional helpful website features can include a link to online scheduling, accepted insurance plans and billing information such as cost and payment methods, and reference areas such as links to more information about chiropractic and acupuncture. Some websites such as Acupractic Natural Healing Center in Chapel Hill, NC may include a set of blogs or resources with great details on a variety of topics such as back pain and chiropractic or how acupuncture treats headaches. Websites will frequently include practice reviews and recommendations from former clients; some will even have video reviews.

The decision to choose alternative medical care is one of the best ones you can make. Once you make a decision, based on advice or insurance considerations, call or visit that practice or that practice’s website to get more information. Your ‘first impression’ of the practice may be a helpful indicator as to the practice’s best fit for your needs- is the phone answered quickly by a cheerful voice? Are your questions answered? Is the website well organized with working ‘links’? Does the practice offer appointment openings that work with your schedule?
