Chiropractic care is one of the most poorly understood forms of health care. Chiropractic care can provide many benefits for the body.
Here are two misconceptions about chiropractic care.
Once you go for Chiropractic Care, you’ll always have to go
While regular visits to a chiropractor are great for keeping your back pain free and help you live a healthy life, it’s not true that once you’ve seen a chiropractor, you’ll have to go for the rest of your life. Most of our patients find that, as they continue to see our doctors, they do not need to be adjusted as often because their body is able to ‘hold’ its adjustment and function better overall.
Chiropractors aren’t health care professionals
Chiropractors spend as much time as other medical doctors in graduate school to become certified and licensed health care professionals. The regulations surrounding chiropractic care are quite rigorous and getting licensed is a long process.
While in graduate school, chiropractors become knowledgeable about chiropractic techniques, neurology, physiology, and anatomy. They spend more than 4,500 classroom hours over three to four years. Chiropractors must also pass a series of National Board exams for licensure. Chiropractors are among the hardest working health care professionals.
