5 Chiropractic Myths (Debunked) From Your Everett Chiropractor

At Cornerstone Chiropractic, we often find that new patients have misconceptions about chiropractic adjustments. Today, we wanted to debunk the top 5 myths for you so you feel comfortable seeking chiropractic care for aches and pains. Here are the top 5 chiropractic myths, debunked by our Everett chiropractor.

1. Chiropractors just “crack your back” – Some people hold off on getting chiropractic care because they think that it is dangerous or painful. These misconceptions prevent people from getting non-invasive, gentle, and effective care. Today, chiropractors use advanced techniques that let us make precise adjustments that many patients barely feel.

2. “Once you start, you have to keep going” – If you are on a budget, it’s natural that you might not want to commit to a treatment program that seems never-ending. Individuals with financial constraints will be happy to know that our chiropractors always develop an individualized treatment plan that includes a set number of sessions. Once your injury is treated, you do not need to visit us regularly.

3. Chiropractic is dangerous for children – Pediatric chiropractors know how to tailor adjustments to children’s delicate bodies. Care can be 100 percent safe and effective for children, we’re happy to say.

4. Chiropractors only treat back pain – From neck pain or migraines to sciatica or frozen shoulder, chiropractors treat many more conditions that just back pain. View our services menu to learn more about the full range of treatments we offer and how they can alleviate your aches and pains.

5. Chiropractors aren’t “real doctors” – Chiropractors are not general physicians, but they ARE Doctors of Chiropractic. After getting four to five years of chiropractic education on the musculoskeletal system and chiropractic healing methods, our chiropractors are qualified to treat patients. We would be happy to discuss chiropractic training and qualifications, or any other questions you may have, in a new patient consultation.
