Chiropractic Myths…. Busted! 

Time has passed since the invention of chiropractic care, but still, some of the myths and misconceptions cloud the minds of people concerning the work of chiropractors and what they do to help their patients. At Lakeside Spine & Wellness, we believe in adequately educating our patients and the community about the actual benefits of chiropractic care. So, lets dive into some common myths around chiropractic care and set the record straight. 

Myth #1: Chiropractors Aren’t Real Doctors 

The Truth: Chiropractors are doctors, albeit with a specialty in the field of chiropractic. They must complete coursework that is as challenging as that of medical students. Much of it is very similar to the programs that medical students take, such as anatomy, physiology, neurology, and radiology. They must also complete a clinical internship and pass national board exams for licensure. Our chiropractors are well-learned professionals at Lakeside Spine & Wellness and are committed to delivering exceptional care. 

Myth #2: Chiropractic Adjustments Are Dangerous 

The Truth: Chiropractic adjustments, are very safe when performed by a trained and licensed professional. There is minimal risk associated with chiropractic care in contrast to most other medical treatments. Our chiropractors at Lakeside Spine & Wellness apply scientifically controlled procedures that make it possible for the spine to be adjusted precisely. These procedures are modified to the patient’s conditions, so as not to elicit negative responses. 

Myth #3: Chiropractic Is Just for Back Pain 

The Truth: Although one of the most successful reasons patients seek care from a chiropractor is back pain, chiropractic goes further. The issues chiropractors address are numerous, from neck pain to headaches and joint pain – all the way to specific chronic pains. Chiropractic care will improve your overall well-being through increased function of the nervous system and the promotion of good posture. At Lakeside Spine & Wellness, we holistically solve health issues by curing the root cause of discomfort and pain in our patients to enhance their quality of life. 

Myth #4: Once You Start, You Have to Keep Going Forever 

The Truth: The notion that ‘chiropractic care requires lifelong treatment’ is not supported by our corrected surveys, researchers write. For example, the number of sessions that one might need in chiropractic care varies considerably from one patient to another, depending on the condition of the patient and the end goals for health. Some patients might need just a few sessions, while others do well with regular maintenance visits. We want to offer every individual at Lakeside Spine & Wellness the proper, individualized treatment that will help with immediate concerns. We work with our patients to design a care plan for their lifestyle and health needs. 

Chiropractic care is safe, effective, and holistic health care. It is in the debunking of such myths that we give you a more clarified view of what chiropractic care truly is and has to offer.
