Our team at Active Integrative Medicine has been providing chiropractic care for many years, and in that time, we have encountered a great deal of misconceptions about and misinformation on the subject. We don’t want you to avoid chiropractic care due to a lack of good information, so we have put together this article to correct some of the most common myths about chiropractic care.
• Myth: If you go to a chiropractor once, you will have to go forever. One widely believed myth about chiropractic care is that once you get your first chiropractic adjustment, you will have to continue to go for regular adjustments indefinitely to maintain the benefits. This is not true—our chiropractic care plans are designed to meet your individual needs, and they can vary in length. We will work with you to address the root cause of your issues, so you can find the long-term relief you’ve been looking for.
• Myth: Chiropractic care is painful. Another idea that keeps people from seeking out chiropractic treatment is the belief that it is painful. This is also not true—while chiropractic adjustments can cause mild, temporary discomfort, you shouldn’t feel any pain.
• Myth: Chiropractic care is only for back pain. A third misconception that many people have about chiropractors is that we can only treat back pain. While our treatments can help relieve back pain, they can also help relieve pain and restore range of motion to every part of the body. If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort in your joints or muscles, we encourage you to look into chiropractic treatment.
