Common Chiropractic Myths
If chiropractic care seems promising, but you have doubts, join the club. Chiropractic is different. And it is this difference that has brought results to millions since 1895 and caused them to rethink the nature of health and the role of chiropractic care in it.
Once and for all, let’s put to rest some of the most common myths:
- Chiropractic isn’t scientific.
- Chiropractors are poorly educated.
- Chiropractors aren’t real doctors.
- Chiropractic adjustments cause stroke.
- Once you go, you have to go for the rest of your life.
- Don’t fix it if it’s not broken.
- My medical doctor wouldn’t approve.
- Chiropractic isn’t appropriate for children.
- You need a referral to see a chiropractor.
- Chiropractic results are just the placebo effect.
If these myths were true, chiropractic would have disappeared long ago, just like bloodletting and countless other ineffective procedures. But not only has chiropractic survived, it’s thriving as more and more people want a safe and natural approach to better health that avoids drugs or surgery.
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
German philosopher (1788 – 1860)
