Hesitation:  
“Chiropractic seems so different.  I’m used to medicine so maybe I will just keep doing what I already know.”

 

Fear:  “Does chiropractic hurt?  I know medicine often does.”

 

Cautious: “Is chiropractic care expensive? I really can’t afford much more.  All my medical bills have maxed out my insurance.”

 

Confusion: “I read that you don’t treat anything.  How are you going to help me without treating my problem?”

 

Distracted: “Maybe I will come in after I try another therapy someone just told me about and see if that helps my problem.”

 

Procrastination: “I’ve got so much to do right now.  Maybe next week.”

 

Concern: “I’m not sure you can help me.  I’ve been to so many doctors and no one seems to know what my problem is.”

 

Anger: “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired!  I don’t want to get my hopes up or get talked into anything!”

 

Sadness: “I have so many problems and anything I have done has only made it worse.  Maybe I’m just not supposed to get better.”

 

Depressed: “I can’t get better because my doctors told me so. I’m just supposed to live with my health problem.”

 

Anxious: “I just can’t sit through another long exam and treatment… the waiting and the gowns and poking and prodding!”

 

Skeptical: “How can you help me when I’ve been to doctors who specialize in my problem and they couldn’t even help me?”

 

Desperation: “Can this really help me?  I’ve been to so many different places looking for help and not finding it.  I have no where else to go.”

 

Denial: “My problem isn’t that bad.  I can live with it.  I have always known that I have a high pain tolerance.”

 

Worried: “I’m so young.  If I’m this bad now, how bad will I be when I get older?  Maybe I won’t even make it that long.”

Bitter: “I’ve had so many medical procedures go wrong for me.  I just can’t afford to have something happen bad to me again.”

 

Embarrassed: “I’ve got a health problem that I have a hard time talking about.  How can you help me when I can’t even tell you about it?”

 

Annoyed: “My doctor tells me there is nothing wrong with me and it’s all in my head, but I just know they aren’t right.  It’s not in my head!”

Jealous: “Everyone in my family is healthy except me.  I must be unlucky.  I always to have to watch everyone else have fun in life.”

 

Overwhelmed: “I’m on so many medications and now they want to put me on even more!  There has to be another answer.”

 

Sensitive: “I’m hurting so bad I don’t know how I will be able to get the care I need, even if it helps me.”

 

Lost: “My doctor told me that chiropractic can’t help me so there is no sense in even getting started.”

 

Suspicious: “Will I get locked into a contract? Everyone seems to have to do that nowadays.”

 

Ashamed: “I know I should have come to a chiropractor a long time ago but maybe it’s just too late to even get started now.”

 

Doubt: “My friend tried chiropractic and it didn’t work for them so why would it work for me?”

 

Hopeless: “The doctors are having me do more and more but I keep getting worse and worse.”

Confident: “I feel pretty good but if I ever have a problem, I will come in as soon as it starts.”
