Top Things People Don't Know About Chiropractors
There is a lot of misinformation about Chiropractors. A quick Google search or even talking to some friends about Chiropractic could leave you confused and potentially full of false information. So we went through and compiled a list of the top five things that most people may not know about chiropractors.
Healthy People Go to a Chiropractor
This is a general misconception in our culture when it comes to medical intervention. Most people assume they are healthy until they have pain or other symptoms and then seek help from a doctor. Preventative measures like regular chiropractic check ups are recommended and can help you avoid problems in the future. Also, just because you are not in pain right now doesn't mean that there isn't anything wrong. Most people end up going to a chiropractor only when the pain is almost unbearable. Making sure that your spine and posture is aligned correctly is important and could help you avoid needless pain and other health problems in the future.
Athletes Use Chiropractors
Almost all professional and elite level athletes use chiropractic on a regular basis to make sure that their body is in good condition. It is viewed as an injury preventer, rather than just a way to deal with injuries. We offer chiropractic care for athletes of all ages as well for this reason.
People Of All Ages Go to Chiropractors
Chiropractic is for all ages including infants, small children, pregnant women and senior citizens. It is never too early or too late for chiropractic. With chiropractic care for children, there are many benefits. Our clinic specializes in specific gentle care that can help small children with common conditions like colicor bedwetting.
Going to a Chiropractor isn’t Addicting (drugs are!)
This is the most talked about misconception about chiropractors. One of the common things people will say against chiropractic is "If you go once, you'll have to go forever!" Chiropractic is not addictive and does not make you dependent on adjustments. On the contrary, the medications often prescribed for pain like opioids are highly addictive and often deadly.
Just like a yearly physical or a bi-yearly dentist appointment, going back to the chiropractor will ensure that everything is still in order and if any adjustments are needed.
