Pain relief for your neck, low back, headaches and sciatica

3 Common Myths About Chiropractic You Should Know About

Doctors of Chiropractic are licensed in all 50 states.

Chiropractic care is a service people CHOOSE to use on a regular basis to counter act wear and tear.

Even though chiropractic care is one of the best health care
options available to eliminate pain, reduce stress, increase
flexibility, and maintain a great quality of life, there are still
a lot of people who don’t know much about chiropractic care.  There
are also a lot of crazy myths about chiropractic.  I want to share
a few of those with you so you have a better understanding about
Check these out:
Myth #1: Chiropractors Aren’t “Real” Doctors
Did you know that some people actually still say that?  Out of
curiosity, what is a “real” doctor anyway?  A white coat?  A
stethoscope?  A prescription pad?  Are we to believe that the only
“real” doctors are the ones with the letters MD after their name?
Or if you don’t prescribe pills then you aren’t a “real” doctor?
The truth is chiropractors are in fact “real doctors.”  I’m pretty
sure I’m real!!! Chiropractors are recognized and licensed in all
50 states as Doctors of Chiropractic.
Truth #1: Yes, Chiropractors are “Real” doctors.
Myth #2:  Once You Go To A Chiropractor, They Make You Go Forever
This is obviously not true.  To answer this myth, there are few
things to consider.  First, I’ve never made a patient do anything
that they themselves did not want to do.  I’ve never forced a
patient to do anything.  Not only do I not “make” people see me for
the rest of their lives, but I also can’t “force” patients to do
something they don’t want to do.  And I doubt any other
chiropractor has a magic wand that makes people do something they
don’t want to do either!
I can’t “force” patients to do something they don’t want to do- your choice to stay healthy.
But here’s the other point you need to consider.  Your body is like
a used car.  With normal “wear and tear” and aging, your body is
breaking down.  That’s just a fact.  And if you add stress to the
equation, then it breaks down even more.  So your body needs
tune-ups, just like a used car, to be healthy.  Your health has to
be something you focus on regularly and consistently for the rest
of your life.  That includes diet, exercise, getting enough sleep,
and taking care of your frame (muscles, joints, and nervous system.)
If you want to be healthy, you CANNOT ignore taking care of
yourself on a regular basis.  Trust me, it doesn’t work. The wear and tear continues every day.  So with
that being said, just know that while I don’t make people “come
back forever,” many patients CHOOSE ON THEIR OWN to come back on a
regular basis to get chiropractic care.
No one makes you exercise regularly or makes you brush your teeth
daily or makes you eat healthy foods.  You do these things because
it keeps you as healthy as possible.  Chiropractic care is a
service people CHOOSE to use on a regular basis because it also
keeps people healthy, feeling great, and keeps their body
functioning at a high level.  Who wouldn’t want that?
Truth #2: You do not have to go to a chiropractor forever, but many
people choose to use chiropractic care on a regular basis (just
like going to the gym) for the rest of their life.
Myth #3: Chiropractic Care Is Only For Back and Neck Pain
Many people think that chiropractic care is only for back and neck
pain.  That’s not true at all.  I want you to think BIGGER.
Chiropractic helps people with a variety of health care problems
and conditions beyond the back.  Many people don’t realize that
chiropractors help other areas of the body too, like shoulders,
elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles.  And chiropractic care not only
helps people get out of pain, but it also KEEPS people healthy.
Also, people of EVERY age can receive chiropractic care; infants,
children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly.  So as you can see,
there’s a lot more to chiropractic than just back and neck pain!
Truth #3: Chiropractic care offers much more than back and neck
pain relief.
So there you have it, the answers to 3 of the most common
chiropractic myths.
Have a great day and I’ll talk to you soon!
