If you want to find a good chiropractor, begin by asking family, friends, and your medical doctor. In New York City, the most sought after medical doctors always know who the best chiropractors are for different conditions. I also think it's really valuable to ask other kinds of healthcare providers because they often are a great source of referrals for the best chiropractors for your condition.

Think about asking massage therapists, physical trainers in the gym, Pilates teachers, yoga teachers, lactation consultants, nutritionists, and midwives. These are people who treat a lot of patients themselves and who are able to make good referrals to chiropractors in most cases.

You can also go to the websites of all of the major chiropractic associations, and they will list chiropractors by zip code so you can find a chiropractor in your area.

You may also search for chiropractors by specialty. There are chiropractors that use different techniques. Some chiropractors specialize in sports rehabilitation or pediatrics or rehabilitation. Other chiropractors use specific techniques, either traditional chiropractic techniques. Some chiropractors do a lot of muscle work. Other chiropractors specialize in non-force or low-force techniques that are extremely gentle. You can find a technique that's right not only for your body and your personality but your condition as well.
