As is the case with many “alternative medicines,” there is a ton of misinformation out there about chiropractic treatment. In order to help you sift through some of this, we’ve compiled a short list of the biggest misconceptions about chiropractic care.
Here are the three biggest myths:
Chiropractic care often offers a more cost effective approach to managing spine pain for a variety of reasons, including lower fees for office visits, the use of x-rays rather that more expensive diagnostic procedures, and lower referral rates to spine specialists or surgeons for more invasive procedures such as injections and surgery.
The risks associated with chiropractic care are very slim. Subjecting yourself to spinal treatment can sound frightening and letting someone manipulate the tissues in your neck can sound just as scary. However, the fact is, chiropractic is very safe and an important, viable option before taking strong drugs that can lead to dependency. Spinal manipulation is often encouraged by doctors as a means of treating problems before surgery is required. Practitioners go through demanding training and education and are well-versed in methods that are both effective and safe. You can rest assured, you’re in good hands.
Chiropractic is often described as painless by adults and children alike. Some patients with severe acute neck or back pain, or have been struggling with chronic issues, may feel some discomfort following treatment at first but the profound relief that often comes with chiropractic treatment is motivation enough to continue. Studies have reported that chiropractors have more confidence in their ability to manage spine pain than medical physicians, and that patients with spine pain report higher levels of satisfaction with chiropractic care than care from a medical physician.
