Hi Ariatna,

As someone who has frequently gone to chiropractors, I think there are a few personality traits that are important in no particular order:

1) Friendly: making someone feel comfortable before you treat them is so important. Receiving chiropractic care can be very nerve-racking, so it's important that the chiropractor makes the patient comfortable and relaxed in their care.

2) Knowledgable: it's so important that the chiropractor is very knowledgable and shares information with the patient. Knowledge makes folks trust their chiropractor, and feeling safe in a chiropractor's care is incredibly important and makes it a much better experience.

3) Honest: being straightforward and honest about what the chiropractor can and cannot do in terms of fixing or managing the pain their patient is in is incredibly important. For example, if a chiropractor promises they can fix something and then they cannot fix it, they will lose trust from their patient and likely lose them as a patient.

I hope this helps, and I wish you luck as you explore potential career paths!

Hi Ariatna,
You want to be able to communicate well with patients. The patients coming to your office will most likely be experiencing some sort of pain and just want to get help. So you have to explain to them what is wrong with them and what treatments you are going to do to them. Being polite and kind and compassionate is important always in any health care setting. You want to be strong physically so that you can get the patient into the correct position. Hope this helps!
