Chiropractic is one of the most widely-used alternative treatment methods in the United States, but that doesn’t always mean it is well-understood. We receive lots of questions of new patients in particular about the role chiropractic can play in their lives. In this post, we will bust the top four myths we hear about chiropractic and set the record straight.
Myth: Chiropractic care is expensive.
Visiting your chiropractor can actually be far less expensive than paying a visit to your primary care physician or other specialist. Regular chiropractic care can also improve your health and well-being, reducing the need for expensive, long-term treatments and surgeries. Here at Forgey, we accept and work with almost all personal health insurance plans and offer cash payment plans for treatments. Our staff is happy to help you navigate the insurance process.
Myth: Chiropractic care is just for adults.
This is a widespread myth that we are happy to put to rest. Chiropractic is completely safe for children, and many pediatric issues can be addressed with our treatments, including bio-mechanical instabilities of the spine to headaches, colic, scoliosis and more.
Myth: Chiropractic adjustments hurt.
Many of our new patients are nervous about this one, but it’s an unfounded fear. Most of our visitors leave feeling relaxed and enjoy the relief of tension. Our team of chiropractors are experts at understanding the nervous, muscular and skeletal systems and are skilled at finding and relieving misalignments and issues without causing pain.
Myth: Chiropractic is only for neck and back pain.
Although a large percentage of our patients walk in the doors due to neck and back pain, we treat a huge range of injuries, problems and conditions. For example, we address issues like migraines, colic, poor sleep, arthritic pain, lack of energy and more.
