Finding a new chiropractor

Real Estate Agent with Realty ONE Group Advocates 484-237-2055 PA License - AB067198

When you move a distance from where you used to live you need to find lots of new providers, contractors, doctors etc.

Well, I have always been a believer in Chiropractic Care, but when I am in pain, I know I really do not want to be driving an hour to get to my most wonderful chiropractor Andy Fetterman in Berwyn. I have been going to Andy for many years and he is excellent. 

But, my back had been uncomfortable for several weeks and a couple of weeks ago it reached the stage where I knew I could not put up with it without an adjustment any longer.

If you have ever tried to find a new doctor or chiropractor you know how hard it is. This is a very personal relationship, this person is actually going to be putting their hands and weight upon you. I have been to a couple of chiropractors who I either considered quacks, or frauds. One actually left me so bruised I thought I had internal bleeding and they did not address the issue.

Anyway, I went on line and discovered some excellent reviews for a chiropractor just 5 minutes from my home. All the reviews were 5 or 4 star, nothing else. So, I thought I would take a chance. My initial reaction to the practice, Fitchett Chiropractic was I liked all the staff, everybody was really friendly. I am never one who likes to have to go get xrays for chiropractic care, but understand this is probably for liability issues. I found them very professional, they had contacted my insurance, they knew what I would need to pay and they had it all written out for me as well.

It took a few adjustments over several days to get everything back to where it needed to be, but each time I have come to like the practice more. They do things in a different order to my previous chiropractor, but I think I actually like that, a different approach.

We are now moving towards maintenance, rather than making me better, so I am happy with that, and so glad that I am not bruised, and I feel a lot better. If you need a chiropractor in the West Grove area contact Fitchett Chiropractic Care, I think you will like them as much as I do.

Hi Nick... having moved many times, I get that whole thing about finding new doctors, dentists, hairdressers, etc. One good thing about having lived in the same area for 22 years now is that I haven't had to look for new people unless I decided I wanted to. Glad you are feeling better and that you found a "good one."

Hi Nick- I feel your pain! (sorry for the pun)   We've moved many times and one of the hardest things is finding a new care provider.   I went to a wonderful chiropractor when we were in FL. Someday I'll tell you my first words when she "adjusted" my back.

I am glad that you enjoy your new chiropractor, it's always difficult to make changes when we get accustomed to the way we have always done things, haha.

Hannah Williams always good to give a shout out to good local providers too.

Nina Hollander, Broker with Doctors I tend not to change unless I really have to if I am happy. I had had many of my doctors etc for a very long time.

Joan Cox yes, feeling much better thanks.

Kathy Streib I can imagine, when you get that adjustment it can feel so good. But, sometimes it can be painful.

Brian England I always presumed it was best practice, and asked this new chiropractor and they said this is how we do it, and feel this gives the best results. Interestingly, I do like the way they do things.

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 - There are many reasons to get excited about a move and there are many reasons to feel anguish when you have to find the right health providers, especially when you are in pain. It is not always about the just the person who puts their hands on you making physical contact, it is the whole office and how you are treated each time you visit. You make your point very clear and good information for all who may have to cross that bridge due to transitioning to a new location.

Thankfully, you found someone very close who gave you the relief you needed. I hope it continues. Also, how is Annie doing? I am glad you have each other.
