If you have never been to a Chiropractor, you probably have heard many things about chiropractic, some good, some bad. I call them Chiropractic Myths! Below I would like to talk about some of the common misconceptions about Chiropractic.

Does Chiropractic Care Hurt?

In the majority of instances no. The typical response to a chiropractic adjustment is a feeling of relief and well-being. If a person comes into my office in excruciating pain, when I adjust them there may be a temporary increase in their pain. This increase in pain is transient.

Do M.D’s refer to Chiropractors?

Yes, the majority of medical doctors find treating musculoskeletal problems frustrating. Meaning their typical treatment involves pain medication and muscle relaxers. Neither of which, get to the actual cause of the problem.

Do Chiropractors require a lot of treatments?

This typically depends on the patient’s goals of treatment. You have to remember that Chiropractic Care is not Symptom-Based. The goal is to correct the “cause” of the patient’s problem, not just the “symptom.” Chiropractic care is very similar to orthodontics. Putting braces on crooked teeth is effective due to corrective pressure and time. This is what our body responds to, pressure and time. Straightening teeth takes time, your spine is no different. Most people want everything now! Sorry, that’s not the way it works. If you want to get the most out of any endeavor, it takes time and commitment. Anything less is doomed to fail.

Why should someone choose a Chiropractor?

If you are looking for a holistic approach to your health challenge, Chiropractic is your answer. Chiropractic’s Philosophy is one that works with the body, not against it. Within you there is a Life-Force, very similar to software that runs and monitors “all” the processes of your body. Chiropractors have a name for this force, we call it the body’s “Innate-Intelligence.” This inborn intelligence has the ability to heal you and keep you healthy all the years of your life. Spinal problems cause a disruption in the flow of this intelligence, allowing you to become susceptible to illness, injury and disease. Correcting spinal problems restores this flow of innate in your body, allowing you to regain your health.

Does chiropractic care help with conditions other than pain?

Yes, people are often amazed after beginning Chiropractic Care how other symptoms begin to fade away. Below are a few examples:

  • Menstrual cramps, the kind that ocurr both before and after a woman’s period begins. My female patients are always amazed that they are cramp free when there lower back and pelvic area is in alignment.
  • Stomach problems also resolve after correcting the spine in many cases.
  • Blood Pressure goes down (both diastolic & systolic) after upper neck adjustments. Recent Study

Becoming healthy takes time and commitment. If you are ready to begin your journey back to health I’m here to help you.
