Choosing a State College Chiropractor Can be Difficult, how do you choose, here is a guide to help.


When faced with all of the options for chiropractic offices in the State College area, it can be a daunting task to pick out the right chiropractic office for your needs. What do you do if you do not have a recommendation from a trusted friend or family member? Hopefully this information will help you make the right decision for your care.

A new patient recently said to me, “There are so many chiropractors in this town, but it’s hard to pick out a good one.” I thought about that for quite some time. Certainly, not every single patient will agree about what constitutes quality treatment.  So, what qualities make one State College, PA chiropractor better than another?


  1. Your chiropractor should be attentive to your chief complaint, the reason you are in the office, and spend enough time with you to thoroughly understand your problem.
  2. A good provider takes a conservative approach to treatment recommendations and discusses with you the specific goals of your treatment. Mild to moderate neck and back pain can usually be managed with less than 10 office visits. If your chiropractor recommends a treatment plan that just happens to be the exact same number of visits that your insurance company allows in a year, that would be an odd coincidence and a possible indication that your chiropractor is not being conservative with treatment recommendations.
  3. Be cautious of chiropractic offices, or healthcare offices in general, that do not make you aware of the cost of your treatments prior to beginning a care plan. Routine visits in a chiropractic office right here in State College can range anywhere from $25 per visit to $125 per visit. An honest provider will inform you of the cost of your treatments prior to beginning a care plan.
