Common Myths about Chiropracic

mythbusted

Chiropractic has some myths that make people uneasy about receiving care. With help from our friends at American Chiropractic Association (ACA), we have come up with a few myths about chiropractic and BUSTED those myths!

  1. Chiropractic Adjustments are Painful
    Most patients do not feel pain but instead relief.
  2. Chiropractic is Expensive
    There have been numerous studies that say chiropractic care is more cost- effective than traditional medicine. Through chiropractic care, you can decrease the risk of back surgery and long term damage to the back that could cost you thousands!
  3. Chiropractors only treat back and neck pain
    FALSE! Chiropractors specialize in improving overall health, especially joint function. You have tons of joints throughout your spine, but also in your knees, wrists, fingers, etc. They can even treat headaches, sciatica pain, auto accidents, aches and pains during pregnancy, athletic injuries and more!
  4. Chiropractic is only for adults
    Chiropractic is for ALL ages! As they grow, children experience trauma to the spine so bring them to a chiropractor to get them checked out! Scoliosis affects over 5 million people in the United States and it is more commonly seen in adolescents between the age of 10 and 151. Chiropractic treatments can help kids with scoliosis and help prevent it from getting worse.

  5.  Once you start seeing a Chiropractor, you can’t stop going
    Regular chiropractic treatments are part of a healthy lifestyle, but every patient has a choice for the number of times they see their chiropractor. Some people feel comfortable coming in every 3 weeks, while others come in only when they experience flare ups. Every patient is different!
