Don’t let misconceptions keep you from getting the care you need. If you haven’t seen a chiropractor before, you might be a little hesitant because of things you’ve heard or read. We encourage you to come visit us for an initial consultation. Let us answer all of your questions so you can decide for yourself whether or not this is the right path for you. Meanwhile, here are some common myths to be aware of.

Myth

Chiropractic care is too expensive.

Fact

Patients who seek chiropractic care early on are much less likely to suffer serious injury later, and are often able to avoid the cost of treating more serious injuries. In some cases insurance even covers chiropractic care.

Myth

What chiropractors do is dangerous.

Fact

It is less invasive than the methods used by other doctors to treat the same types of symptoms. Often surgery or other much more dangerous treatments can be avoided or delayed with regular visits to the chiropractor.

Myth

Once you start, you can’t stop.

Fact

A short course of treatment is often all that is needed in the case of an injury or misalignment. If you take care of yourself, and follow a routine of stretching and exercise that supports your recovery, you may not need ongoing adjustments.

Myth

Your bones grind and crack, and it hurts.

Fact

Modern methods are often so gentle that there is no pain, no cracking and no discomfort at all. Even with these gentle techniques however, you’ll realize fast and long-lasting pain relief.

Myth

Chiropractors only deal with back pain.

Fact

Your spine connects to all of the other parts of your body. If you have an injury to your leg or foot, chiropractic care can be very helpful. Is it also useful for headaches, sinus problems and other types of symptoms. Call to schedule a consultation if you are wondering if we can help.

We hope that we’ve been able to put your mind at ease a bit about going to see a chiropractor. If you are suffering with undiagnosed, or diagnosed pain, and haven’t been able to find relief from other treatments, please give us a call.
