3 Myths about Chiropractors

C3 Myths about Chiropractorshiropractors are some of the most misunderstood professionals. Most people don’t trust them because they believe that chiropractic doesn’t work or is dangerous. There’s also this general assumption that chiropractors don’t really focus on the welfare of the patient but rather the revenue they would earn from the business. Unfortunately, this general distrust actually prevents people from getting the right treatment for their problems.

At Family Chiropractic & Wellness, we’ve made a commitment to educate our clients about chiropractic. We want our patients to be aware of what this form of treatment really is. Here are some myths about chiropractors that we would like to dispel.

1 – The Adjustments are Dangerous

Adjustments can be dangerous if they’re performed by laymen. However, a skilled chiropractor will understand your body and your problem before performing adjustments. You won’t have to worry about any damage to your spine or muscles. Adjustments are performed with great care. They won’t hurt, they won’t damage your body, and they will provide relief.

2 – Chiropractors Don’t Need to Study as Much

This is one of the most ridiculous rumors about chiropractors. Authorities won’t allow professionals to mess around with people’s spine of all things if they weren’t certain that chiropractors were properly trained. Consider this; medical doctors require 2,756 class hours to complete their education. Chiropractors need 2,887 hours to complete their education. Moreover, their education includes thorough understanding of the spine, the muscles, and tendons. They learn as much as they can about the human body.

3 – Chiropractors are Expensive 

You’ve probably heard of the term ‘value for money’. That can be applied to chiropractic care. Most people feel that the upfront costs of the treatments are a little excessive. What they don’t account for is other, additional costs that they have to incur when they visit a medical doctor. After all, you only pay the doctor for their services, not for medication and other such add-ons.

Research into the comparative costs of treating several problems indicates that the overall expense of chiropractic care is considerably lower than the cost of treatment from a medical doctor.
