Choosing a Chiropractor in Chicago

Choosing a chiropractor in Chicago can be quite a challenge. In a city as large and diverse as Chicago is, chiropractors are just as diverse. Each and every chiropractic office has a different philosophy, different techniques, and of course the Doctor in each office has a different personality. All of these are important things to consider when choosing which chiropractic office will be the best fit for you. Here are some things to consider when choosing a chiropractor in Chicago:


This is a very important factor, but should not be the only factor taking into consideration. You may want to choose the chiropractor that is geographically closest to you in Chicago, but please consider all the factors listed below first. The chiropractor you choose should be located conveniently because oftentimes you will be making multiple visits there a week during the beginning stages. It should be close to home, close to work, or on the route you take between home and work. It is of the utmost importance to follow the schedule your chiropractor recommends, and to do that the location has to be convenient for you.

Practice Philosophy

As varied as the weather in Chicago can be, chiropractors philosophies can be just as varied. One is not better than the other, they are just different. It is important for you to seek out a chiropractor who’s philosophy matches what you are looking for. For example, some chiropractors are experts at pain relief. If your goal is to get out of pain, you don’t want a chiropractor who specializes in treating kids, and visa versa. If you are looking for an overall wellness routine to help optimize your health there is a chiropractor for that. If you are looking for spinal correction to improve overall posture there is a chiropractor for that. Do your research. Read reviews, call the office you are interested in and ask questions. Some offices offer a complimentary consultation to see if you and the chiropractor are a good fit for each other. To me this is more important than location because this will ensure you are getting the results you are looking for.

Adjustment Style

The final thing to consider when choosing a Chiropractor in Chicago is the style of adjusting that the Doctor uses. Some chiropractors use a traditional hands on type of adjustment where others use instrument assisted adjustments. Some do both. Others use a light touch approach, some only adjust the top bone in the neck. Again, one technique is not better than the other, they all have the same end result in mind, which is to get you better! Try different chiropractors and find the adjustment style that resonates with you the most.

I hope you found this helpful in assisting you in choosing a chiropractor in Chicago that will best fit your needs. If I can be of any more assistance on this topic please reach out to me at (773)545-9379.
