Type of Pain - Central Chiropractic Clinic
Whether you have a mild twinge in your back or you're suffering from extreme discomfort, you need to see a chiropractor. A good chiropractor can help you to recover and give you the advice and information you need to avoid having problems in the future. But how to choose a chiropractic clinic?
West Midlands patients can choose from hundreds of chiropractic clinics, but choosing the right one can be tricky unless you know what to look for:
- 1. Qualifications
Until fairly recently, anyone could set up as a chiropractor. Patients weren't always getting the best treatment and weren't protected if something went wrong. Since 2001, however, anyone wishing to trade as a chiropractor has to be registered with the General Chiropractic Council. Standards are high, so patients can be confident that anyone operating under a GCC certificate is a professional chiropractor. If you are seeing someone who isn't certified by the GCC, you could be getting the wrong treatment.
- 2. Location
Where is your chiropractic clinic? West Midlands clinics are all over the county, so there's bound to be one close by. The questions is whether it's the right clinic for you. It may not specialise in the type of problem you have, or it may be busy and unable to fit you in. If you have the time and can travel without too much difficulty, look for a clinic that may be further away but could give you the help you need.
- 3. Facilities
A clinic's facilities are important. What are the treatment rooms like? Is there on-site parking so that you don't have to walk for miles to get there? Are there x-ray facilities at the clinic so that you don't have to go back to your doctor or wait for a hospital appointment if you need one? These are all questions that you need to ask in order to find out whether this is the right chiropractic clinic in the West Midlands for you.
- 4. Conditions treated
What conditions are treated at the chiropractic clinic? West Midlands clinics offer a range of treatments. Some may specialise in a particular area and be unable to help you. It's always worth speaking to the clinic before you make an appointment, to ensure that the practitioner really can help.
- 5. Cost
Whilst some treatments are available on the NHS, you may need to pay for others. You should find out what the costs are before you make an appointment. If you have private medical insurance, check that your clinic works with your insurer so that you can be confident of making a claim.
