In this day and age, there is plenty of misinformation that gets spread about a variety of subjects and chiropractic treatments are no exception. Bellow Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few of the myths about chiropractic treatments that might make a potential patient hesitant to pursue chiropractic as a viable treatment option.
Myth #1: Chiropractic is Only for Back Pain
Chiropractic treatments have been shown to be beneficial for a wide range of areas of the body, not to mention vital systems of the body (like the immune system, the GI system, and the central nervous system).
Myth #2: Chiropractors Aren't As Educated as Traditional Physicians
Chiropractors go to school for at least 4 years in order to earn a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree and have to go to 3-4 years of an undergraduate college program.
Myth #3: Chiropractic Adjustments Are Only For Those Who Are Injured
Although it's true that chiropractic adjustments benefit those who experience injury, it's equally true that chiropractic treatment can help you avoid injury and increase flexibility and range of motion, not to mention provide drug-free pain relief to common conditions that affect many patients daily.
