There are many common misconceptions regarding Chiropractic Care and how it can help people get well and stay well. The truth is, many people can benefit from seeing a chiropractor.
Here are five things you may not have known about Chiropractic Care:
Chiropractic Treatment is for People of all Ages
Chiropractic Care is beneficial for all age groups. It can benefit seniors by relieving pain, restoring range of motion, decreasing joint degeneration, increasing coordination and balance. Chiropractors can also treat infants from the moments right after birth encase of any misalignments that may have occurred during the birthing process. Treating children may also help with asthma, allergies, bed-wetting, sleeping problems or colic.
Chiropractors Treat Athletes on a Regular Basis
Not only do athletes receive chiropractic adjustments when they are injured, but many also receive adjustments on a regular basis. Chiropractors are movement specialists and have helped top athletes stay healthy, prevent injuries, speed up recovery, and improve balance and coordination. Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments helps give athletes a greater competitive edge.
Pain is the last Symptom of Dysfunction
Many people do not realize that the absence of pain is not health. Taking medication to mask pain is not fixing the dysfunction that caused it to begin with. Muscle, ligament, and joint injuries often occur from long-term dysfunction or past injuries which make the area more susceptible to future injury. Some people may be unstable for months or years before they feel pain and end up in a chiropractor's office.
Chiropractic Adjustments are not Painful
Many individuals who have never had a chiropractic adjustment believe that it is a painful, bone snapping experience. However, patients find out that the adjustments are far gentler than they anticipated. The sound an adjustment makes is the result of gasses being released from the joint capsule.
You do not Need to see a Chiropractor for the Rest of your Life
It is a common misconception to believe that if you see a chiropractor, you will have to continue treatment for the rest of your life. In reality, you many want to see a chiropractor forever, but your doctor will not expect you to continue with treatment if you are not experiencing symptoms. Many people make the choice to see their chiropractor weekly or monthly for wellness.
