Myths About Chiropractic Treatment

There are quite a few myths surrounding Chiropractic Treatment, but in reality all these myths are countered with just as many truths, which is why it’s the 2nd largest healthcare profession in America.  Chiropractors have spent years debunking these myths using a broad range of diagnostic approaches.

Two common myths about Chiropractic Treatment:

  1. If you go for chiropractic treatment you will have to keep going.  Simply not true.  Many problems related to muscular and skeletal pain can be corrected with chiropractic treatment. Coastal Chiropractic Rehab & Wellness deals with the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.  Returning for continued treatment if it is not necessary is an individual choice.
  2. Chiropractic treatment is unsafe for children.  Again, not true.  Children can be extremely active and reckless at the same time.  Kids actually inflict a great deal of trauma on their fragile bodies before the age of five, and some of those aches and pains they experience can easily come back to haunt them later.  Chiropractic care can prevent skeletal and muscular injuries in children from becoming permanent complications.

For example, 10 million children a year suffer from ear problems.  The most common, ear infections, can cause severe pain and fevers, as well as become a chronic condition.  Chiropractic treatment has been successful in mobilizing the middle ear to drain itself in children suffering from potentially dangerous ear infections as a safe alternative to surgery or strong antibiotics.

Those are just two of many examples. Some people still think that chiropractors aren’t really “doctors” in the traditional sense, that they just do “mysterious” things to your back and spine. That is most definitely false.  We always conduct a thorough exam before deciding if Chiropractic treatment is right for your situation. Our basic approach is to use gentle adjustments along with physiotherapy rehab and neuromuscular techniques.
