There are plenty of people who can extol the many benefits of chiropractic treatments. They know because they’ve experienced improvement– often life-changing improvement! Even though chiropractic care has been around since the 1800s, there are still many who harbour misconceptions. Let’s put a few to rest.
Myth: If I start chiropractic care, I’ll never be able to stop.
Fact: Once the spine is properly aligned and old habits that lead to misalignment are abated, there is no reason why you would need to continue going. However, chiropractic visits now and then should be considered as maintenance, much like going to the dentist to keep your smile healthy.
Myth: Chiropractic care is just for back pain.
Fact: While chiropractic care is ideal for resolving various causes of back pain, it is equally as effective for other conditions. If you suffer from headaches, need help with improving your posture, or want to improve your immune system, chiropractic services can help. There are other conditions that can be treated through chiropractic care, as well, so you should always give your chiropractor your full medical history.
Myth: Chiropractic care is too expensive.
Fact: Medical care of any kind has costs, but you’ll find that chiropractic care that helps you avoid surgery and other invasive procedures to be a real bargain overall.
Myth: Chiropractic care is more dangerous than other options.
Fact: The truth is that every day people are injured or die from back surgery, neck surgery, and prescription drug side effects. Because chiropractic is less invasive, the risks are actually much lower.
Myth: Chiropractors are not “real” doctors.
Fact: It takes just as much training and study to become a chiropractor as it does those in other fields of medicine.
