How To Choose A Kirkland Chiropractor

Kirkland Chiropractor5 Tips to Choosing the Best Kirkland Chiropractor

Though there are many great resources for obtaining valuable information to assist you in your search for a Kirkland chiropractor, it can be overwhelming, particularly if you are new to chiropractic. To help guide you in making an educated choice regarding your health care professional, keep the following five points in mind as you sort through the mass of information.

1.  Complimentary Consultation

There’s no way any chiropractor should expect a patient to choose him/her without allowing you to first visit the office to see for yourself if the office, staff, and doctor is right for you.  You should be able to discuss your health problem and the treatment approach of the office upfront to determine if you’re in the right place.  If the Kirkland Chiropractor you visit is not willing to provide this consultation for free then you’re probably in the wrong place.

2. Appropriate examination, diagnosis, and treatment

This is extremely important. Doctors of chiropractic have been through extensive training and education to become health care providers. This training included proper examination, proper diagnosis and proper treatment protocols. If a doctor lacks in any one of these three essential areas, he should not be treating you, period! What does this mean for you? If a chiropractor doesn’t talk to you about your health history and your current condition, doesn’t give you an initial physical examination (checking posture, reflexes, etc.), doesn’t give you a diagnosis regarding your condition, and won’t explain your treatment plan, find another chiropractor.

3. Treatment Options With Kirkland Chiropractors

There is no “one size fits all” in health care!  People have different problems, different health goals, and different desires.  If you’re not provided with several different treatment options to achieve the different possible outcomes for your condition, then you may be best served to look elsewhere.  Make sure the Kirkland Chiropractor you consult provides you with a few treatment options that allows you the freedom to be in charge of your health and make the best decision that is in line with your health care goals.

4.  Payment Plans Available

With rising copays and deductibles, decreasing insurance benefits, and the reality that many plans won’t cover all of the treatment that you need to achieve maximum results, your out-of-pocket expenses for health care are increasing.  As a result, most successful chiropractors usually allow several payment options for patients to be able to afford the care that they need.  Any successful practice that has the goal of helping you get better will be able to work with you on the payments, whether you’re covered by insurance or not.  This allows you to ger the care you want without financial stress.

5.  Do Your Homework Before Choosing A Kirkland Chiropractor

Talk to your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to see if they can provide you with a referral to a Kirkland Chiropractor that they have seen or have heard great things about.  Better yet, get online and do some searching.  We live in the computer age and there any many website resources available for you to read “reviews” on a prospective chiropractor.  Citysearch, Yelp, Google and many other sites allow patients the freedom to share their experiences with a particular provider.  Don’t be discouraged by a few negative reviews as any business that serves a lot of people is simply unable to please everyone, but there should be highly swayed towards positive reviews of people who have experiences great care!

Hopefully you found the information above helpful in assisting you in your choice of a good chiropractor.  If you are looking for a Kirkland Chiropractor, I would be pleased to be your choice!  In my practice each of the areas discussed are a priority in providing you with a great experience.

Chiropractic BioPhysics On the Cutting Edge With Kirkland Chiropractor

Kirkland ChiropractorLearning CBP Prior to Becoming a Kirkland Chiropractor

In April 2000, long before I became a Kirkland chiropractor, I attended my first CBP chiropractic technique seminar.  Little did I know at that time, but it would literally shape the path for the rest of my career.  There are many, if not hundreds, of different chiropractic treatment techniques, however, after 12 hours stuck in a conference room on that April weekend I knew I had found something special.

What is Chiropractic BioPhysics?

CBP is not so much a technique as it is a complete protocol and system of patient management with the goal being to change/correct spinal alignment.  Using specific adjustments, exercises, and rehabilitative traction, this system offers a “corrective” approach to many of the spinal health problems that affect our society.  In our office we validate patient’s improvement not just by measuring symptoms, but also by taking post-treatment xrays to verify changes in the patient’s underlying condition.  Seeing is truly believing and nothing shows progress more than ”before and after” xrays.

Leading the Way in Effective Spinal Correction as a Chiropractor in Kirkland, WA

For a profession that prides itself on improving spinal alignment in order to improve overall body health, CBP is leading the way!  If you need more information contact me directly or stop by Eastside Spine & Wellness in Kirkland, WA.

Will I Become The Best Kirkland Chiropractic Blogger?

Kirkland ChiropracticKirkland Chiropractic

I am not sure yet if I will become one of the best Kirkland chiropractic bloggers out there, but I’m going to give it my best shot.

Why did I start the Eastside Spine & Wellness Chiropractic Blog?

So after 10 years in practice and realizing once and for all that this “internet thing” isn’t just a passing fad, I have finally given in to peer pressure and will be starting a blog!

I have quite a few friends and colleagues that began their blogs early on in practice, and it seems that many of their patients and colleagues appreciate it.  Some focus primarily on back pain and neck pain, but I am hoping to have a blog that is a little more well-rounded.

I am going to try and focus on topics that are of interest to me, typically about chiropractic, health, wellness, and the occasional family post.  As a chiropractor in Kirkland, I have done my best to establish myself in the community, and hopefully my writing will contribute even more to the needs of the community.

Unfortunately, on one hand I feel like the writer’s block is already starting and on the other hand I feel a sense of excitement to have a forum to share the million things that keep me up at night. Not sure where this is going to go each week, but I envision it being a mix of health, wellness, chiropractic, and anything else that happens to be on my mind.  Some of it might even be funny once in a while.

Hopefully with a little luck, a few people might learn more about chiropractic, how to stay well naturally, and a little about me and my family.

With all of that being said, I would like to welcome you  to my Eastside Spine & Wellness Kirkland Chiropractic Blog.

Here we go…
