Common Myths on Chiropractic Care

Some people are still scared of trying alternative treatments, particular chiropractic care, because of misconceptions and myths.  I am trying my best to reach everyone in Cape Girardeau, but it seems I have still not talked to all of you!  Here are some common myths you might have heard about chiropractic care:

Myth: Chiropractic is Too Painful

All in all Chiropractic is generally painless.  Many patients actually feel relieved immediately after corrections!  Some people in fact love the way the adjustment feels.  In some cases, where patients have long been struggling with neck pain, or back pain, they may feel some discomfort, but their visits tend to be more and more relaxing as time progresses.

Many adults look forward to corrections.  Children many times are scared, but quickly get over their fright once they realize that there is nothing to fear!

Myth: Chiropractic is Dangerous

As mentioned in previous articles, Chiropractic is very safe.  Chiropractic is looked upon by many as the safest way to help neck and back problems.  This is compared to the possible dangerous outcomes of pain killers and surgeries.  As a result many doctors, encourage their patients this before turning to surgery.  Chiropractic is also recommended by many doctors, before they prescribe strong drugs like steroids and pain killers.    

Myth: Chiropractors are Less Capable Compared to Medical Doctors

Chiropractors undergo go very rigorous training and education.  These courses are identical to those taken by medical doctors for the first two years; where they then learn about natural procedures of healing, and the MD’s learn of surgery and pharmacology.  Chiropractors first must study from 3-4 years as an undergraduate, before going on and completing 4 to 5 years of doctorate level studies at an accredited Chiropractic College. 

Chiropractors are then well-equipped in subjects such as pathology, radiology, biomechanics, differential diagnosis, physiology, Chiropractic techniques, and other health concerns to name a few.  After completion of their doctorate program they must pass State and National Boards to ensure their qualification.  Even after these steps are met, they must get Continuing Education every year and ensure that they are staying current with their skills.

Myth: Chiropractic is Very Pricey

Chiropractic is considered both effective and cost-effective.  This is especially true when comparing major medical interventions such as surgery and long term pain killers.  Many patients under Chiropractic Care have drastically lowered their expenses for inpatient visits, healthcare programs, and medications.

In most cases a Cape Girardeau Chiropractic Clinic will find have a cheap and quick way to get you in to determine if you are a candidate for Chiropractic Care.  For example you can look at my website  to get a new patient visit coupon that saves lots of money and helps you check out Chiropractic risk-free.  Depending on your case, prices may be higher at the beginning of care as you may be seen more frequently, but that quickly changes and at that point many offices will offer you to stay on a maintenance program should you choose.  These types of preventative programs ensure that you don’t lose the ground you had gained while under the initial care program.
