When choosing a chiropractor, new patients have many facts to take into consideration, and two main areas that should weigh heavily in their decision. The first important area to take a thorough look at is how a chiropractor views wellness care. The second area to consider is how they view their relationships and with their patients, and their responsibilities to them.
Health is not merely the absence of disease. When the body is in proper alignment, it heals well and maintains itself well. This condition offers an open-ended opportunity for vitality, vibrant health, and an enhanced experience of life.
Wellness care supports the idea that the body should be treated well, not just when there is an injury or illness, but proactively managed and maintained for optimum health. A successful chiropractor will incorporate wellness care into their practice. At Caring Touch Pain Relief we educate our patients on the importance and implementation of wellness care into their daily lives.
The chiropractor that utilizes wellness care will seek to turn on the natural healing ability of the body. They do this not by adding something to the system, but by removing anything that might be interfering with the normal healthy function of the body. Well-trained chiropractors, such as Drs. Kirk and Valerie McVay, understand that the body can naturally bring itself to the highest state of health as long as there is no interference.
Choose a chiropractor who looks for the underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption and who advocates making whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments necessary in order to optimize normal function. This type of chiropractor will be able to help provide a higher quality of life. Chiropractors who encourage natural healing, similar to the treatments which are practiced at Caring Touch Pain Relief, and who seek to support the body working properly will be the most effective and the best choice for long-term, natural health.
The way a chiropractor interacts with their patients is extremely important in their ability to apply proper and helpful chiropractic care. Their knowledge of how a patient feels while in their office, and also how they feel in their day-to-day lives are vital to understanding the total patient. A good chiropractor will strive to understand their patient as a person, including their habits and their emotional and physical experiences both at work and at home. Drs. Kirk and Valerie McVay at Caring Touch Pain Relief work to listen and understand their patients in order to treat them appropriately.
The importance of a good chiropractor seeking to understand their patient’s entire life cannot be understated. Whether a person sits at a computer desk all day long at work, or they lead a more active lifestyle, will make a difference in how their chiropractor works with them. Addressing a patient’s extreme muscular tension and tightness from lack of exercise or working with an athletic patient to integrate chiropractic care into their lifestyle both require good communication between chiropractor and patient.
When seeking a chiropractor it helps to have an idea of the difference between good chiropractic care and great chiropractic care. Choose a chiropractor who has a well rounded approach to their treatment plan and takes the time to get to know their patients will deliver the best results. The chiropractors at Caring Touch Pain Relief want to partner with their patients in a proactive healthy lifestyle and assist them in living their best life.
