Common Myths About Chiropractic Doctors

Common Myths About Chiropractic Doctors

    Chiropractic care tends to be a mystery to some people because they have never visited the chiropractor. Because of this, there are some myths about chiropractors that are definitely not true. Here are some common myths about chiropractic doctors and explanations to why they are just myths.

    Often people avoid the chiropractor because they think it is too expensive. This is definitely a myth. Most all insurances cover chiropractic care the same as any other specialty doctor. So if your insurance covers it, you will most likely only have to pay a copay. If you do not have insurance, it is still not expensive. Because the procedures are non-invasive and don’t require medication, they are very economical compared to a general doctors procedures.

    Chiropractic offices also have promotions and special offers often that make it less expensive. For example, Walk-In Chiro has a new patient special for only $47. This includes the exam and any necessary x-rays. There is no reason to not give the chiropractor a try when the first appointment is this great of a deal!

    Another common myth is that chiropractors only treat back pain. Chiropractors specialize in joint movement. This means they specialize in any joint, not just the joints in the back. If you have ankle or wrist problems, the chiropractor will be able to help you the best. They also work with many patients that have neck pain. Neck pain is very common due to how frequently we use our necks. Neck pain can come from almost any activity that we do daily.

    The next myth that needs debunking is that chiropractors are not real doctors. Chiropractors are required to have the same doctorate degree as general practitioners but then are required to gain a specialty in chiropractics after that. Some chiropractors even take extra schooling on nutrition to give suggestions on what you should eat to help you heal. So they are very much so real doctors and are highly qualified to do what they do.

    The last misconception is that when you go to the chiropractor once, you will be going for the rest of your life. This is far from true. If you have a serious injury it may take multiple weeks of therapy for you to completely heal, but once you’re healed you’re done. Some injuries can be fixed with one small adjustment in one visit. Chiropractic visits can be compared to visiting the dentist. You visit the dentist twice a year to make sure you’re teeth are in good shape. You should visit the chiropractor one to two times a year to make sure your joints are in good shape. That is just a recommendation, you can go more often than that, and you can also only go to fix a specific issue. It is up to you and your body’s needs.
