As with all healthcare professional you should perform a little background and credentials. What is their degree in and how long have they been practicing? A good place to look up their school is on the Council on Chiropractic Education’s website. Do they specialize in anything?

For the State of Florida you can look that with the Florida Board of Chiropractic Medicine.

Basic questions on Chiropractic Techniques

After you feel comfortable with the Chiropractor you can ask a few questions on the techniques they use. What techniques do they use and why? Do they use their hands or an instrument when performing the chiropractic manipulation? Do they have any experience in your type of injury or pain? Are they going to use a deep joint-popping adjustment or a low-force adjustment procedure? All good questions that should give you a better understanding so you can choose your chiropractor.
