Common Misconceptions on Chiropractic Care

Despite continued research efforts by health experts to unravel more about chiropractic care, there are still many who fail to understand aspects of this method. Lack of information automatically results to the formation of myths and misconceptions.

Here are common misconceptions on chiropractic care and the truth behind them:

Myth #1: All of the benefits of Chiropractic Care are Placebo

Today there exist study after study that have proven that Chiropractic is effective and far beyond just a placebo effect.  You see numerous double blind research studies that totally invalidate this myth.  A placebo effect is the belief that the benefit one gets from a particular treatment is merely psychological in nature, and not actually “real.”

Chiropractic Care in our office is a Health Care System that focuses on the Nervous System and your body’s musculoskeletal system.   It is because of this that we know Chiropractic addressed problems associated with these parts and it improves their functioning!  The BIG IDEA of Chiropractic is that is restores the body’s natural or INNATE ability to HEAL and retain normal function.  Even a casual Google search will show many cases and studies proving the benefits of Chiropractic Care.  Especially if you were to Google Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care.


Myth #2: Chiropractic Care is Dangerous!

This is one of the biggest myths!  Many fear to undergo Chiropractic Care because they believe it can damage their body and expose them to more serious problems.  This is what I thought before I first saw a Chiropractor and received help!  Now I know that is not true J  ! Worse than that even is, some people still don’t know that Chiropractors are licensed doctors.

As you probably know, Chiropractic is a professional healthcare field and Chiropractic Doctors are considered Medical Professionals!  Chiropractors undergo Doctorate level training and upon completion of their Doctorate Degree are eligible to sit for National Standardized Testing and apply to their state for licensure.  They are even required by their states to continually advance their education as they complete continuing education credits!  Chiropractors have rigorous training of the body, and often more education on nutrition, exercise, and other similar natural health topics.

It is pretty much agreed universally that Chiropractic is much safer then the risks associated with taking prescription pain killers, the risk of addiction to these meds, and most certainly the risks are dramatically less than surgical complications.


Myth #3: Chiropractic Hurts!

All Chiropractors who perform adjustments in America have undergone many years of rigorous training and clinical hours. So fear of pain is really nothing to be too concerned about. In rare cases, there may be a certain amount of discomfort associated with the re-balancing process of the body, but this is only temporary and often times the only thing the patient feels is a reduction of their pains! Compare this to the recovery process of surgery and you have a winner! In short however, Chiropractic does not hurt!


Myth #4: There Are Bad Side Effects

As mentioned above, you have nothing to fear!  There are some who even believe that Chiropractic Care could result in a stroke. 

However, Chiropractic Care is recognized in the medical field as one of the safest forms of healthcare.  This is the reason so many people are turning to Chiropractic, compared to the more dangerous surgeries and drug interventions.  

In our office we use very specific and precise analysis and all of our patients feel very comfortable with our type of care, even in the rare cases they had the previous misconception that Chiropractic was not safe!


Myth #5: Chiropractic is TOO Expensive

This is far from the truth!  In fact is has been studied and Chiropractic has been found to be one of the most affordable options for dealing with pain, esp. back pain, when compared to the cost of medications, missed days of work, and surgeries!  I read in an article that Chiropractic Care cost 90% less than a typical back surgery, and it saves the patient many days of lost work when they would be recovering from surgery.  These values get even higher when comparing Chiropractic with neck surgery!
