Top 3 Chiropractic Misconceptions
I. Chiropractic is only for back and neck pain.
The first chiropractic patient was deaf and had his hearing restored after a chiropractic adjustment. That was over 100 years ago. Chiropractic doesn’t treat any specific medical condi-tion. The chiropractic adjustment helps improve nervous system function so the body and immune system function better. You need not suffer from a particular condition to enjoy the benefits of chiropractic — you simply must have the desire to be as healthy as possible.
2. Chiropractic is just for adults.
On the contrary, chiropractic is GREAT for kids! Numerous case studies show that chiropractic is very safe and effective for children of all ages. A wellness lifestyle including chiropractic care makes fora happy family.
3. Once you go to the chiropractor, you have to keep going back.
Going to the chiropractor on a regular basis is a very healthy lifestyle choke. However, the healthier you live outside the chiropractor’s office, the less time you’ll need inside the chiropractor’s office. Healthier living means less stress and therefore fewer subluxations. Compare your chiropractic visits to working out at the gym or seeing the dentist. Your fitness is maintained or improved with additional workouts and dental appointments can be less frequent if you take good care of your teeth. Remember, your health is your responsibility.
