Myths About Chiropractic Care Busted
In a way chiropractors are the black sheep of the medical family. We don’t use drugs and aren’t invasive. As a result, people have odd conceptions and assumptions about chiropractors and the services we offer. Below are some of the most common misconceptions of chiropractors and why they are untrue.
Myth 1: Chiropractic adjustment hurts
Chiropractic doctors make adjustments through incredibly specific corrections to involved areas of your body. This means that just enough force is applied to bring relief from pain, not to cause it.
Myth 2: Chiropractic care is expensive
Studies show that chiropractic care is more cost –effective than traditional medicine. In a study done on over 85,000 people, it was discovered that those how were treated for back pain through a chiropractor had costs 40% lower than those that sought traditional care. Because chiropractic is simple and intensely focused on being effective, you get more results for your money.
Myth3: Once you start seeing a chiropractor, you have to keep going the rest of your life.
It is true that regular chiropractic adjustments are important for a healthy lifestyle, just like visiting the dentist is important for dental health. However, you have a choice in how you handle your needs. It can be often, a few times a year, or even less. Some patients experience full recovery after 1 or 2 appointments. You won’t know until you try!
Myth 4: Chiropractic doctors only treat back pain
Chiropractors treat joints. There are many in the back, yes, but you have joints all over your body, and we treat those too. Knees, neck, ankles, feet. We adjust them all to give you relief from headaches, neck pain, sciatic pain, pregnancy comfort and auto injuries.
Myth 5: Children don’t need chiropractic doctors
Children bodies are incredibly resilient and flexible, but they are also growing into the bodies that they will have for the rest of their lives. With children being as active as they are they can experience 1,500 spine- related traumas before they turn 5. Most problems that we find in adult patients can be traced to childhood injuries. It is important to have your child’s developing body assessed for any problems to prevent negative results in the future.
