Chiropractic Myths (Debunked)
Several myths that we like to address early on regarding chiropractic care (and covered more in-depth here):
- “Chiropractic treatment is harmful/dangerous.”
It’s not, IF your condition has been assessed completely and thoroughly before your adjustment, to make sure that it is suitable and safe for you. That’s what your initial consultation is for!
- “Chiropractic is all about the “cracking” and “popping” of your spine/bones.”
That is the sound of gas bubbles being released from the joints during an adjustment, and is not required for an effective adjustment! Chiropractors look for specific movements in the spine or joints, not in achieving the popping sounds.
- “Chiropractic adjustments are painful.”
The chiropractor will always gently guide you to relax and put you at ease during the adjustment. Post-adjustment soreness is normal as well for those who have never done it before.
- “Chiropractic care requires multiple visits.”
This depends on the severity of your condition – very rarely can a single visit cure what you have been dealing with for months or years.
- “Chiropractors take lots of X-rays.”
This is only recommended to be done if necessary.
- “Chiropractic care is only for adults, is it?”
Our Practice Members range between 2 year old toddlers all the way up to senior adults who are 80+ years old, so if you or your child has been cleared with an initial assessment, it is safe for most ages.
