How do I find a Chiropractor in Melbourne, who is the most suitable Melbourne Chiropractor for me?
What type of Chiropractor are you looking for? Are you after quick patch-up relief, or a more lasting strategy? Is it important to you that the Chiropractor has many years experience? Do you want to be thoroughly assessed, to understand your condition and have a baseline of reference for progressive reviews? Do you prefer a firm technique, more interested in a structural adjustment, or prefer a more gentle approach? Do you want to learn how to help yourself? Are regular lifestyle concept and strategy seminars of interest to you?
What about convenience?
What part of Melbourne is most accessible to you? Do you need your Chiropractor to be on a public transport line? Will you need off street parking for your car? Do you want after work appointment times? Is there a flexible fee schedule that rewards you with lower fees when you prepay for sessions in advance, or when you bring in your partner or other family members?
What type of Chiropractor are you looking for?
Chiropractors practice in a broad spectrum of philosophies as well as techniques. They range from focusing on solely treating a single condition, such as neck pain, back pain or headaches, to a more wholistic approach of whole body and life health care, with the focus on how each body part is interrelated and interdependent. Chiropractors are also diverse in their range of technical approaches.
Are you after quick patch-up relief, or a more lasting strategy?
Are you in near perfect health, and your health concern is a recent and isolated condition, not having any bearing on the rest of your health? Maybe only very few sessions will resolve your concerns. If your condition has been building and developing over time, a longer-term plan may be in order, to more comprehensively address the underlying and more deep-seated issues.
Is it important to you that the Chiropractor has many years experience?
Are you more comfortable with a Chiropractor that has experience with your type of conditions? You may awn to find a Chiropractor that has helped many people like you in the past.
Do you want to be thoroughly assessed, to understand your condition and have a baseline of reference for progressive reviews?
Would you prefer the Chiropractor just adjust you, with only a brief examination of you and your condition, or first understand your condition comprehensively, and assess you with a more wholistic approach? There are varying degrees of assessments approaches. Some are better able to understand the core and underlying issues, as well as being able to use high tech bio-assessment instrumentation to measure exactly how your body is performing, so you can see, and compare at future dates.
Do you prefer a firm technique, or prefer a more gentle approach?
Every person has his or her preferences. There are some who prefer to feel more “action” with their adjustments. Others don’t like that as much, and prefer the light touch approaches. There are also techniques using drop table mechanisms, hand held adjusting instruments, and increasingly popular low force gentle touch (tonal) approaches.
Do you want to learn how to help yourself?
If all you want is an adjustment, you may choose a Chiropractor differently, than if you want to learn how to prevent future problems, support your care, and advance your health beyond just pain relief.
Are regular lifestyle concept and strategy seminars of interest to you?
Do you want to understand how the spine works? There is so much more you can learn, if you are interested, that further fulfills your healthier living objectives? What should you eat, how should you exercise, how to better manage stress, boost you immunity, improve your posture, raise your energy levels, be happier, and so much more…
What part of Melbourne is most accessible to you?
Most people prefer to see a Chiropractor who is either close to home or to work. Some people are happy to travel when they find exceptional service. It’s a personal choice.
Do you need to be on a public transport line?
If you use public transport, consider how close your potential Chiropractor so to the public transport vehicle you use, whether it is trams, trains or buses.
Will you need off street parking for your car?
The convenience of driving your own car can be hampered by not finding a convenient parking space. Find out if your Chiropractor has ample parking, and ideally off street parking which is free, as a bonus.
Do you want after-work appointment times?
Depending on your daily timetable, you may have a preference for particular time of the day. Find out in advance what options are available to you. Whether its morning, lunchtime, afternoon or evening appointments; you want a time that works well for you. As a bonus, see if they offer weekend times too.
