Become a critical researcher. You may be looking for a new chiropractor or this may be your first time. A really important skill for all research is to be a critical researcher or critical thinker.
This doesn’t mean you are being critical. It means you are taking all factors in consideration before you make your choice.
If you’ve never seen a chiropractor before you may have tried many things for your foot pain, ankle pain, hip pain, shoulder pain or chronic pain condition, but ‘giving it time’ seems to be the most common. In the meantime, the pain continues to haunt you and it’s getting in the way of doing the things you love.
The famous last words that walk through chiropractic offices everyday is “I thought it would go away.” Whether you have back pain, foot pain, neck and shoulder pain or numbness/tingling in your hands, chiropractic could be a really great choice for you right now.
When most people think of chiropractic they only think of the traditional chiropractic adjustments which is usually a physical turn, a twist and there’s the noise from the joint releasing. It’s important to know that there are 250+ other techniques.
