The Myths Versus The Facts Of Chiropractic Care

by Joann Dunn

When it comes to your health, you probably hear many people suggest doing different things. You may even hear that chiropractic care is essential for healthy living. However, there is also a great deal of negative information out their about chiropractic care that may make you turn your head at the thought of it. Here's the myths versus the facts of chiropractic care that you should know:

  • Chiropractic Care Makes You Feel Worse: Many people may tell you that they once went to a chiropractor and felt much worse afterwards. Yes, not keeping up with treatments can lead you to feel much worse before you experience the benefits. However, just like starting up a new exercise program, your body needs to learn to adjust to the changes that are being made. 
  • Cracking Your Knuckles Causes Arthritis: Another reason people tend to stay away from chiropractic care is that they believe that it will cause them arthritis. However, this is not the case. There is no evidence to suggest that cracking anything causes arthritis. In fact, your joints need some movement in order to function as they should. No movement of the joints is the true cause of arthritis.
  • Spinal Misalignment Doesn't Hurt, so You Don't Need Treatment: Just because you do not experience pain does not mean that your spinal misalignment isn't causing harm to your body. In fact, the problem many people experience with their health is that they wait until they feel pain to get treatment, which more often than not leads to heightened disease and higher health costs.
  • Treatment is Addicting: Many people believe that getting chiropractic care is addicting and they will not be able to stop going, which means an increased number of sessions and more money. However, this is not the case. Yes, you will enjoy that the treatment makes you feel better overall, but you will not feel an addicting need to visit a chiropractor like you would to smoke a cigarette.
  • Chiropractic Care Causes Strokes: A common myth to hear is that chiropractic care causes strokes. Again, there is no research to back this up, which suggests that this isn't the case at all.

By knowing some of the myths versus the facts of chiropractic care, you can feel much safer about going to a chiropractor. This is going to ensure that you find all the health benefits of the care instead of missing out on it


About Me

Pregnant? What You Need to Know About Your Pregnancy

During my first pregnancy, I spent a lot of time pushing pillows behind my back trying to find comfort. As the size of the baby grew, so did my discomfort. By the time she was born, I was more than ready to give birth. When I found out I was pregnant again, I was determined that I would not suffer through the same discomforts. I started researching ways to ease the symptoms of pregnancy, including back pain. I created this blog to help other expectant moms find remedies to deal with those symptoms that can be emotionally and physically draining.
