Are You Anxious About Chiropractic Care?

By Genevieve Cunningham

People have been telling you for years that you should see a chiropractor. They've given you stories about their own experiences. They've explained how their back pain finally went away or how that stubborn crick in the neck finally disappeared. But as much as you know that you should give it a try, you can't shake that anxious feeling about getting a new medical treatment. Sound familiar? If this is you, you're not alone. Anxiety surrounding medical procedures of all kinds is a serious issue for many people. But when it comes to seeing a chiropractor, should you worry or not? If you're considering finally making it to the clinic, take a look at these tips for easing the anxiety. 

The Root of Chiropractic Anxiety

The root of anxiety surrounding most health situations stems from fear of the unknown. What will the chiropractor say? What will they do? Will treatment hurt? Will it even work? And with chiropractic care, there's also the extra fear of safety. Many claim that chiropractic care isn't a real practice and that it's dangerous. If you've never been to the chiropractor and you're not brushed up on your research, this can be a terrifying thought.

Why It's OK to Relax

Luckily, you really can relax before your visit. Why? Because research and science is on your side. The experiences of millions of people proves that treatment usually don't hurt. When they do, it's usually a slight soreness after care. Research also proves that chiropractic care is a safe option. The risk of major injury is only one in several million treatments. Compared to most healthcare procedures, these are incredible odds. In fact, it's so safe that it's even recommended for infants, pregnant women, the elderly, and everyone in between. If you're still nervous, show up early to talk to the chiropractor about your fears or concerns.

When You Should Speak Up

Like any sort of health treatment, there are times when you should speak up. If your treatment is causing legitimate pain, you should say something. If your anxiety is causing serious health problems, speak up! It's OK, even normal, to experience a bit of anxiety over your health. Take a deep breath, seek out some help, and trust that the chiropractor has your back -- literally!
