Understanding More About Chiropractic Care

Whether you're injured or just looking to improve your health, it is important to understand different treatment options to achieve the most benefits. That being said, I thought I would help "clear the air" on any misconceptions surrounding chiropractic care. 

True or False: Chiropractors are not real doctors.  

False. Chiropractic college graduates receive a Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree and are licensed health care providers. In addition, chiropractors are required to complete a residency working with real patients in a clinical setting before graduation, complete a chiropractic curricular comparable to that of medical school, and pass four sets of national board exams before practicing.

True or False: Athletes use chiropractic care.

True. Chiropractic care has been known to improve overall athletic ability while preventing injury. Additionally, chiropractors can treat current injuries and create diet and nutritional plans for athletes. Many athletes, including Tiger Woods, see chiropractor’s regularly to ensure their best performances.

True or False: Chiropractic Care is Dangerous.

False. Not only is chiropractic care less invasive than other medical procedure, but it also decreases risk for injury. Chiropractic care focuses on natural techniques to manage and prevent pain while other forms of treatment, such as prescription medication or surgery often have life-threatening side-effects.

True or False: Children can benefit from chiropractors.

True. Just as adults need to take care of their spines, children must do the same. Not only is it safe for children to see chiropractors, it is advised that they do. Children are extremely active and susceptible to injuries that can impact the functionality of their necks and spines indefinitely. It is highly important to maintain your child’s’ spinal health and seeing a chiropractor can do just that.

True or False: Chiropractors only help with back pain.  

False. While chiropractors do help back pain, they are not limited to back pain treatment. Chiropractic care can aid countless aspects of personal health including headache relief, chronic pain, menstrual pain, pregnancy support, arthritis, injury recovery, and can even boost your immune system. On top of that, chiropractors are trained to provide health, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle guidance. 

True or False: Once you start going to a chiropractor, you can’t stop.

False. While it is always beneficial to seek chiropractic care for optimum spinal health, chiropractors create treatment plans that target the cause of your pain. After you start seeing a chiropractor and your pain is alleviated or maintained, regular visits to the chiropractor are entirely up to you.

True or False: Chiropractic care is painful.

False. Chiropractic care aims to relieve pain, not cause it. Chiropractic adjustments are extremely controlled and individual to the patient’s need. While after adjustments, one may feel stiff or sore (similarly to how you may feel after a hard workout), patients generally feel better after visiting a chiropractor.
