The 2 most important questions to ask yourself when you are looking for the best Rio Rancho Chiropractor for you are: Will they get the Results you are looking for and Will you be able to maintain those results.
Will your Rio Rancho Chiropractor get the results you are looking for?
The most important thing here is for you to be able to clearly define what results you are looking for. If you tell your Chiropractor that you want your hip pain to go away, it will be a good idea for him or her and you to understand why you have hip pain in the first place. This is one reason why it is a good idea to have a chiropractor or their staff adequately listen to you and ask you enough questions in order to understand your goals. They will ask you simple things like why did your problem start, what makes it worse, what activities do you do on a regular basis that are creating your problem and others. I read an article some time ago that said that the average doctor spends about 17 seconds before they already have made a diagnosis and are writing a prescription. Does your problem need more than 17 seconds of thought?
By asking the right questions, your chiropractor should be able to help you understand “why” you have your hip pain. This will help you get the results you are looking for and leads us right into our next question:
Will you be able to maintain those results?
Perhaps the most important thing in maintaining your results is making sure that your chiropractor has done a thorough exam. This should include some of the available advanced technology to assist in correctly analyzing your problem. For example, x-rays may be warranted to see any structural shifts. I have seen people that have been adjusted for years in a manner that will actually make their curvatures worse. Don’t get me wrong, Chiropractors are the best at feeling things that are abnormal with their hands. We do this every day. But I heard someone say many years ago “To see is to know. To not see is to guess.” My experience has shown that it is a good idea to “see.”
Other technology that could be utilized are things like thermography, SEMG or heart rate variability.
Some Chiropractors in Rio Rancho utilize this and other technology. You should take the time to ask yours before you make your first appointment.
Your chiropractor should also suggest lifestyle modifications so that your problem doesn’t keep coming back. It could be as simple as changing your rear-view mirror position or the height of your computer monitor.
So when you call your desired chiropractor in Rio Rancho, ask these important questions so that you can get and keep the results you are looking for.
