Chiropractic is a greatly misunderstood healing art and science. The misunderstandings are usually the product of misinformation. So, lets set the record straight.
Myth #1 Chiropractic adjustment are dangerous.
This could not be further from the truth. Receiving chiropractic adjustments are statistically safer than taking an aspirin.
Myth #2 Chiropractic adjustments are painful.
Most patients, after their first adjustment, say something like, “Is that it?” Surprised and happy that it does not hurt and in fact the treatment feels good.
Myth #3 Once you start receiving chiropractic care, you cannot quit.
The truth of the matter is that once you start, once you understand the benefits of chiropractic care, you do not want to stop. The healing and health benefits of continued chiropractic care on a wellness basis is a choice that thousands of Applecross residents choose to avail themselves of to keep themselves in the very best health possible.
Myth #4 Chiropractic care is just for temporary relief of symptoms and does not correct the cause.
This could not be further from the truth. Chiropractic is all about fixing the cause of the symptoms. In other words, finding the joint and nervous system dysfunction that is pinching the nerves that make our body not work right.
Myth #5 Chiropractic treatment is about fixing the back.
Well, what is wrong with that? Actually, that is partly true. Chiropractic adjustments restore normal communication between the brain and body by reducing and eliminating pressure on the nerves that the spinal column protects. That is what this is all about, restoring the normal function of our health delivery system, our nervous system.
