Dispelling the Chiropractic Myths
Chiropractors have been around for a long time and as such the odds are that you’ve heard one or two of the myths over the years! We’ll be dispelling some of these so keep checking our page and we’ll highlight how these myths, are well, just myths.
#1 Chiropractic treatment is dangerous!
Chiropractors go through rigorous education and training, and are regulated to the highest professional standards by the General Chiropractic Council. Extensive clinical training and yearly on going education and training are also required to ensure continuing patient safety and duty of care. We are passionate about our work and there’s no better feeling than helping a patient become pain free and enjoying their life to the full!
#2 Chiropractors are expensive!
#3 Once you have a treatment, you’ll need to keep coming back
Not true! Treatment is intended to help fix immediate problems. The key to an ongoing pain free life is in preventative care. Healthy eating, exercise, proper posture and lifting techniques are what will help you most over time. While periodic spinal checkups are recommended, preventative care may minimize the number of treatments needed.
#4 Back pain is the only condition a Chiropractor can treat
Back pain may be the most common ailment treated by Chiropractors, but it is far from the only problem a Chiropractor can treat. A Chiropractor is trained to handle a wide variety of conditions such as back pain, neck pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, ankle pain, to name a few.
