Chiropractic Myths You Shouldn’t Believe
The concept of chiropractic care and the associated treatment methods have long been misunderstood by the common man.
There are a lot of myths about the field floating around on the internet and by word of mouth. It’s important to educate yourself on the subject and distinguish fact from myth, particularly if you are considering investing in a chiropractor.
The Treatments are an Endless Cycle
A widespread misconception seems to be that people think once you start chiropractic treatment, you have to keep going back for more.
On the contrary, chiropractic treatments are not an endless cycle that you can never get out of. Once the method and time limit of your treatment plan is decided, you only have to stick to that until a marked improvement is noticed.
Once the condition improves, one can end the treatments. However, people do tend to keep returning to chiropractic care due to the numerous benefits that it has provided them in managing their pain.
Chiropractors Aren’t Legitimate Professionals
A very persistent myth concerns the status of chiropractors as “real professionals”. This is due to a lack of knowledge people have on the subject.
All chiropractors have to jump through a number of hoops, complete their education, and pass state exams and get licensed in order to practice as a professional. They are different in the way they use the knowledge they possess and the treatments they use, but do not lack in expertise. Our team at Cascade Spine and Injury Center are certified to provide chiropractic care.
Treatment Costs are Excessive
Our payment plans are quite affordable, and sure beat spending excessively on pain medication that fails to work time after time.
The treatments are not unending, so you don’t need to worry about having to pay again and again for chiropractic care. Not only is it cost-effective, it also helps you cut out on future costs by keeping you fit and healthy.
You Can Just Do it at Home
Some are under the impression that they can just twist around a bit and crack a few joints to achieve the same effect as a chiropractic treatment. This is very strictly untrue. Not only is it ineffective, it is highly dangerous to manipulate sensitive areas without the proper training and knowledge. As mentioned above, chiropractors go through extensive education and training in order to be able to carry out treatments in a safe and effective manner.
