How To Find A Good Chiropractor

Here are the things Dr. Drewry looks for when he moves to a new city and is looking for a chiropractor for himself.
  • Private practices where the doctor is the owner or partial owner
  • Doctors with at least 10 years of experience
  • High organic Google ranking/not running ads
  • You get treated on the first visit, not made to pay for a marketing advertisement
  • Doctor of Chiropractic – Many chiropractors in Netherlands are not DCs and may not legally use that title.

What To Avoid

Marketing-based practices. Marketing-based practices use techniques taught in marketing seminars to “maximize profits.” At these places, it’s all about the money. They are easy to spot using this list. How to recognize these?

  • “Care packages” such as a discount for x number of visits, which you may not need
  • “Care plans” (like 3x per week)
  • “Phases of care” – not every patient goes through the same phases, so Drewry thinks this one is particularly deceptive
  • Marketing Posters on the wall
  • They want you to watch a video
  • Words like “phases of care” “team” “wellness” and other marketing fluff
  • Stock photos on website instead of actual practice photos
  • No photo of the Doctor on the homepage

Other Red Flags

  • Chiropractic is mixed with PT, massage, and other services in the same unfocused practice.
  • You do not get treated on the first visit. You must pay to hear a marketing presentation.
  • Chains of more than one office under the same owner
  • Group practices where one doctor owns the business, and the others are employees
  • No diploma, national board certificates, or licenses on the wall or on the website
