Chiropractic Care: Does It Live Up to the Hype?

In recent years, chiropractic care has taken a lot of heat. It has been in the spotlight in both a negative and positive fashion. On one side, there are people claiming that chiropractors are frauds that take your money and don’t provide a real service. On the other side, there are people claiming that chiropractors provide important and beneficial pain relief and bodily health. So, what’s the truth? Check out some of these frequently asked questions to determine the truth for yourself.

Is a Chiropractor a Real Doctor?

In all honesty, that probably depends on what exactly you mean by “real doctor.” A chiropractor attends specialized school and holds a degree in their practice. They are officially a Doctor of Chiropractics. Their training is long, extensive, and they come out as a medical professional in the end. A chiropractor must also hold a license to practice in his or her state. So, if by “real doctor” you mean a licensed, educated professional, then absolutely!

Is Chiropractic Care Safe?

In multiple recent studies and through extensive experiences, chiropractic care has been found to be safe for the general population. For individuals of all ages and walks of life, regular chiropractic care has not only been found to be safe, but effective in many cases. Chiropractors are professionals trained to perform their very specific trade. Though it can be scary to (literally) put yourself in the hands of a chiropractor, both the safety and benefits of such care are extensive.

What Can a Chiropractor Treat?

Chiropractors can treat a vast array of ailments. They can treat obvious ailments like back and neck pain, but the healing potential doesn’t end there. A chiropractor can also help with headaches, pain in the limbs, pulled muscles, the immune system, and the list could continue for ages. Their benefits are vast, and many people are discovering that regular chiropractic care can improve the general overall health and wellness of their bodies and minds.

How Do They Treat Patients?

For the most part, chiropractors work by aligning the spine properly. Through manual spinal manipulation, chiropractors can treat misalignments that often lead to pain in various places around the body. This proper alignment can give your body a healthier overall sense of well-being.
