The Truth About Chiropractors: Nixing the Myths

By Stephen R. Farris

By now you've probably heard all the myths about chiropractic care. The bottom line, they're simply that. Myths. The truth is that your local chiropractor is highly trained in the profession. While they are not general practitioners, they are highly trained medical professionals and licensed doctors.

Each chiropractor here in the United States has to get their undergraduate degree, with a focus on the sciences. From there, they receive both classroom and hands-on training for four years at an accredited college approved by the Council on Chiropractic Education (CEE). 

After graduation, they will have earned their doctorate of chiropractic and can begin practice. During their education, they have to learn and be able to perform more than 100 chiropractic methods. However, some may choose to specialize in certain techniques.

Not Just About the Back

Most people tend to think that all a chiropractor does is crack the bones in your back. Spinal manipulation is just a small part of what they can do. They can perform other manipulation techniques to treat pain in muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, cartilage, and your nervous system, to name a few.

Chiropractic care can also help give you relief if you're experiencing aches and pains in your neck, legs, hips, pelvis, arms, shoulders, wrists, and ankles. They can also treat certain medical conditions you may have, and it's a good way for women to get relief from the pains of pregnancy and post-pregnancy.

So now that we've cleared away the myths about chiropractors and chiropractic care, maybe it's time to pay them a visit, such as those found at The Joint Chiropractic.
