Chiropractic Facts vs Myths


If you’re skeptical about chiropractic care, you’re not alone. Myths about chiropractic treatments could cause you to miss out on this natural means of pain relief. By separating fact from myth, your Manhattan chiropractor can give you a better idea of how chiropractic care works. At Balanced Health Medical, we’ve helped thousands of patients with our natural, non-surgical pain relief treatments. We’re sure we can help you, too. Below are some of the most common myths about chiropractic care.

Myth: Chiropractic techniques like adjustments and manipulation can be harmful.

Spinal adjustments and manipulations are chiropractic techniques used to alleviate pain. They’re performed by trained doctors in the chiropractic field. These techniques help to ease muscle tension, reduce inflammation, alleviate pain and restore mobility. Like all chiropractic therapies, they provide a safe, natural, non-invasive means of obtaining pain relief.

Myth: Chiropractic treatments are lengthy and costly.

In many instances, chiropractic care can be less expensive than surgery or long-term use of prescription drugs. Many health insurance companies to include Medicare and Medicaid cover our natural treatments due to the benefits of improved health. This puts the cost of treatments within the average person’s reach.

The length of your treatment will depend on the extent of your neck or spinal injury and pain. At Balanced Health Medical, our goal is to help you achieve complete recovery. If you desire, you can continue therapies with your chiropractor to maintain optimum health and wellness, much like going to the gym.

Myth: Chiropractors aren’t “real” doctors.

Chiropractors must complete a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and pass national and state board exams before they’re given a license to practice in their field. Students are required to complete 3 years of undergraduate studies before entering the 4-year Doctorate program. In addition, chiropractors receive hands on training in a clinical setting to gain valuable experience before practicing their profession in the real world.
