Routine chiro care from experienced and knowledgeable professional doctors is gentle, safe, and effective.

When people have a terrible experience with a physician, they don’t write off the entire field of medicine – they find a better doctor. Chiro is no different.

Top 6 Chiropractor Myths We Hear – Busted 

Let’s debunk the top myths we hear about chiro care and the industry.

  1. Adjustments Are Painful and Aggressive

Your doctor will always use the gentlest and least invasive techniques. Adjustments should gradually realign your spine – not force it into place.

  1. Once I Start, I’ll Have to Go Forever – That’s How They Get You

We love to see you, but we don’t want you in our office every week indefinitely. Your doctor wants you to enjoy long-term relief. 

  1. It’s Expensive

Most insurance plans cover routine or injury-related chiro care. If not, visits still tend to cost less out-of-pocket than physician visits. 

  1. Chiropractors Aren’t Real Doctors and Can’t Be Trusted

Chiropractors must go through medical school and licensing often requires more experience than typical doctors.

  1. Children Shouldn’t See a Chiropractor Because They’re Still Developing

Children frequently suffer from back pain and can benefit from seeing a qualified pediatric chiropractor.

  1. Chiro Care Is Dangerous 

Of course, horror stories make headlines. However, the reality is that you’re more likely to get struck by lightning – twice – than get hurt by a chiropractor.
