John’s Answer

Important Qualities
Decision making skills. Chiropractors must determine the best course of action when treating a patient. They must also decide when to refer patients to other healthcare professionals.

Detail oriented. Chiropractors must be observant and pay attention to details so that they can make proper diagnoses and avoid mistakes that could harm patients.

Dexterity. Because they use their hands to perform manual adjustments to the spine and other joints, chiropractors should have good coordination to perform therapy effectively.

Empathy. Chiropractors often care for people who are in pain. They must be understanding and sympathetic to their patients’ problems and needs.

Interpersonal skills. Chiropractors must be personable in order to keep clients coming to their practice. Also, because chiropractors frequently touch patients in performing therapy, they should be able to put their patients at ease.

Organizational skills. Self-employed chiropractors may need to schedule appointments, manage employees, bill insurance companies, and maintain patients’ files. Good recordkeeping and other organizational skills are critical in running a successful business.

Aimee’s Answer

I am not a chiropractor but I have been seeing chiropractors for years, and continually seek out the best. Currently I LOVE my chiropractor for a few reasons - 1) his personality - he remembers me, and my injuries, etc. He has is kind, and I never feel rushed out of his office. 2) He incorporates physical therapy as well, stem, ultrasound, massage, stretching, so I get 100% best of the best.
Also he offers a cash price that is $35 / visit so its affordable and I get so much out of his adjustments
