Top 3 Chiropractic Myths DispelledMyth #1 - Chiropractors are not primary care physicians or have less education than other Doctors FALSE
A chiropractic college grants a D.C. or Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. Chiropractors are licensed as health care providers in every U.S. state and dozens of countries around the world. Both chiropractic and medical school curricula are extremely rigorous and virtually identical. In fact, chiropractors have more hours of classroom education than their medical counterparts. As part of their education, chiropractic students also complete a residency working with real patients in a clinical setting, supervised by licensed doctors of chiropractic. Once chiropractic students graduate, they have to pass four sets of national board exams as well as state board exams in the states where they want to practice.
The biggest difference between chiropractors and medical doctors lies not in their level of education, but in their preferred method of caring for people. Medical doctors are trained in the use of medicines (chemicals that affect your internal biochemistry) and surgery. Consequently, if you have a chemical problem or an infection, medical doctors can be very helpful. However, if your problem is that your spine is mis-aligned or you have soft tissue damage causing pain, there is no chemical in existence that can fix it. You need a physical solution to correct a physical problem. That is where chiropractic really shines. Chiropractors provide physical solutions -- adjustments, exercises, stretches, muscle therapy -- to help the body heal from conditions that are physical in origin, such as back pain, muscle spasms, headaches, and poor posture.
Myth #2 - Once you start going to a chiropractor, you have to keep going for the rest of your life. FALSE
Going to a chiropractor can help you maintain your full potential, whether you're an athlete, a labor worker, someone who sits at a desk all day, or a stay at home mom. It can keep you sitting, standing, and moving without pain and without nasty side effects. Use chiropractic to keep you engaged in the things you love to do. Instead of being limited in your performance due to pain or stiffness, what ever your passion may be, seek the help of a chiropractic physician to work with you to help you reach the personal goals you set for yourself, short and long term!!!!
Myth #3 - Chiropractic care is something you can't afford. FALSE
