After seeing a chiropractor, you most likely want to rave about how you are feeling and how amazing your adjustment was, but what happens when the person you are expressing your experience with doesn’t buy into what you are saying? Not everyone is willing to try new things as there are many myths and misconceptions out there about chiropractic care.
Common Myths Debunked
“Why go to a chiropractor? I can crack my own back.”
Our AICA Snellville team highly recommend individuals not trying to self correct their spine themselves. Although it may be something someone has always done, there is a certain way to correctly adjust the spine and it is impossible to accurately correct your spine on your own.
“It’s way too expensive.”
Many that have health insurance are unaware that chiropractic care is covered under their policy. Our Snellville chiropractors will work with you if your insurance does not cover the cost as we care to meet the needs of our patients.
“Once you start care, you never stop.”
Everyone and every situation is different. Chiropractors provide a vast array of treatment options for many different conditions. Some may see a chiropractor for abnormalities in spine like scoliosis where others may see us for chronic headaches. The only reason people return is because they see the benefits from the adjustments.
“A chiropractor isn’t a real doctor.”
Believe it or not, chiropractors must undergo more schooling than most other medical professionals. They must learn the ins and outs of anatomy and physiology, proper nutrition as well as understanding public health.
“Adjustments are dangerous and can hurt you.”
With so many medications on the market there are just as many side effects. The best part about chiropractic care is that it is all natural with no side effects other than having you feel better than you did prior to working with the chiropractor! With any adjustment to your body much like a strenuous workout, there may be sore sports or aching but the long term benefits outweigh those few moments of aches.
“I just don’t see how chiropractic could help my__________.”
Some are under the impression that chiropractors solely provide care for the back but that is not true! When a chiropractic adjustment is performed, the misalignments in the spine once corrected allow for the brain and body to work together more harmoniously.
