3 questions to ask your new chiropractor or podiatrist

We've previously discussed the 3 signs you need to visit a chiropractor or podiatrist, but choosing the right one for you can be tricky.

One of the best ways to determine this is through an initial consultation where you can ask some vital questions. If this is your first visit, you might feel unsure what questions you should ask.

3 questions to ask a chiropractor or podiatrist

Below, we've covered 3 questions we believe should form part of any initial consultation:

1. Have you treated many patients with similar issues to me?

It’s always good to know the chiropractor or podiatrist is familiar with treating and managing others who have had similar issues to your own. This can help put your mind to rest that you’re in good, experienced hands.

2. How long will it take to treat my concerns?

For many reasons, it can be challenging to put an exact timeframe on treatments; while for some conditions the path to relief can be straightforward, this isn’t always the case.

Be wary of anyone who offers you clear timeframes for treatment at an initial consultation. There’s a lot of information needed to make this kind of assessment, and a good chiropractor will want to learn more about you and your specific health concerns before offering any concrete answers.

3. Where can I find reviews from your previous patients?

Reviews from previous clients can give you a more robust picture of a chiropractor, their manner, and how helpful they are across a range of patient issues.

Reputable practices will offer reviews on their website or perhaps displayed within their practice offices. It’s also worth checking out Google Reviews for more information.

Final thoughts

When seeking a chiropractor or podiatrist, you want to make sure you hire someone who understands your specific complaints, is reputable in the industry and - if needed - will be able to refer you to another medical professional who can better assist you if they can't.

In short, you want to ensure you find someone who has your best interests at heart. These questions can help you make a confident decision that you’ve found the best person for you.
