If you are looking for a Brisbane chiropractor and have never been to one before, or are looking for a new chiropractor, there are a few things you should look for to make sure you get the best service and treatment possible.
Chiropractic treatment has helped restore spinal stability and function to enable more efficient control of the body, since it’s development in 1895. It’s natural non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical approach makes it safe and suitable for people of all ages and needs.
To ensure you get the best treatment possible a good chiropractor should always do or have the following:
1. Listens To Your Concerns & Complaints
Chiropractors in order to find the best treatment for you, should always be open to listening to what you have to say. After all, it is your body, only you know how you truly feel and what areas you are having trouble with. They should be empathetic and give you the “time of day” to truly understand your needs to then recommend treatment or further testing. This not only makes you feel like you are being listened to but also ensures your needs are being met.
2. Have A Well Equipped, Clean & Tidy Facility
The facility should always be well equipped, with services provided inhouse with the exception of X-rays. If they don’t provide all their services on site, they should be able to refer you to a clinic in which those additional external services can take place.
There should be adequate seating for you to comfortably sit and wait for your appointment as well as adequate lighting and an overall pleasant atmosphere.
3. Convenient, Easily Accessible Clinic Location
Health complaints can place a lot of stress on your shoulders, you don’t need the added stress of trying to get treatment for them in hard to get to locations. Clinics should ideally be located in areas close to parking and/or public transport.
4. They Are Accredited Practicioners
Know you are getting the expert treatment you need with a fully accredited practicioner. Ensure this is listed on their website before contacting them.
5. List Their Services
A good chiropractor should list their services on their website, and let you know what to expect on your first visit. This transparency gives you the peace of mind, knowing what is involved and what options, such as various payment methods, are available to you.
6. Healthcare Coverage
If you have healthcare cover, you should check to see that your chiropractor is registered with them. This will save you money in the long run.

7. Chiropractors & All Staff Are Friendly & Professional
You should always be greeted by polite, professional and friendly staff, regardless if it is over the phone or in person. Good customer service and the ability to try and find the best solution for you should be present in their demeanour and speech. Who really wants to talk to a grumpy chiropractor or receptionist?
8. Explain Things Thoroughly So You Understand
It is your body, to fully understand how to best look after it, your chiropractor should explain instructions and advice thoroughly. If you don’t understand, always ask for clarification, and they should respectful talk you through the information. You should never be made to feel like you can’t ask.
9. Provides information about their clinic, services and staff
Information about the clinic, services, procedures, chiropractors & other staff should be provided on their website. Again, transparency and information will help you make an informed decision on the right chiropractor for you.
10. Easy Process To Make Appointments
Booking an appointment is a breeze when streamline systems are in place. Whether it is an enquiry form or simple phone call, every step of the way should be simple and easy. Your enquiry, if done online should be responded to within the next business day, not several days down the track.
