6 Myths of Chiropractic Care
Many people have heard of chiropractors. If you have never had chiropractic care, you can probably relate to many of the common myths.1. Getting an adjustment hurts
While some people call chiropractors “bonecrushers”, this is just a myth. Many people experience great relief after receiving an adjustment. Children and some adults are sometimes nervous when it comes to receiving an adjustment, but there is nothing to be concerned about. A chiropractor understands the skeletal and muscular system in a way that allows them to find the source of problems and make adjustments to correct and alleviate a pain center.2. Once I start, I’ll be going forever
This isn’t true. In fact, many patients with an acute issue come in for a few visits and obtain the relief they needed. Others find that ongoing care increases their vitality and well-being and choose to continue chiropractic adjustments. At Strain Chiropractic you will never be subject to pressure for return visits, the frequency of your care is always up to you.3. It’s expensive
When compared to most visits to the doctor’s office, chiropractic care is actually less expensive. Considering long-term treatment plans that can involve medication, surgery, or intensive physical therapy, chiropractic care can often provide a less expensive, natural, healthy alternative. Strain Chiropractic files and accepts most forms of insurance.4. Chiropractors are not real doctors
There is a common misconception that chiropractors are less qualified and under educated than medical doctors. Chiropractors attend 4 years of undergraduate school and go on to receive their doctorate after another 4 to 5 years of studies. They must also pass State and National board certifications to become licensed.5. It’s only for adults
Many children, including infants and toddlers can benefit greatly from chiropractic care. Some studies reveal a 80-90% reduction in colic with 1 treatment.6. Chiropractic care is dangerous
When it comes to your back or neck, chiropractic care is far safer than surgery or pain killers. Many doctors recommend seeing a chiropractor before deciding on an extensive surgical procedure.Education
