Hello, Dr. James Lee Here To Talk About Chiropractic Care.
I have been A Chiropractor now for many years and have witnessed several transformations with many patients. I also have heard many of them tell me personally that they will be getting Chiropractic Adjustments forever and that if they had known about results Chiropractic Care offers, earlier in their lives, they would have seen a Chiropractor a long, long time ago.
This inspires me to not only adjust even more people but it makes me want to educate and make the public more aware of just how powerful Chiropractic Care is!
I put together some common questions and concerns about Chiropractic and thought it would be a good idea to list a few:
Myths About Chiropractors
Chiropractors Are Not Real Doctors!
The public has come to think of a doctor as somebody who prescribes pills or does surgery. Sadly, and even worse, numerous people also think this is the best, or only, method of practicable health care.
The public needs to understand, without question, that there’s so much more to health care then drugs and surgery – much more.
In order to practice as a Chiropractor, you must graduate from a accredited school of Chiropractic as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Then you must pass both national and provincial board exams to qualify for a license.
Many people do not realize that to become a Chiropractor you have to take almost VERBATUM every course by course, close to exactly as a regular Physician does! A Chiropractor has an equally extensive education in basic human health sciences as any other doctor. How a chiropractor differs is the philosophy behind how those basic health sciences are applied to help an individual to maximize their health.
So, is a Chiropractor a real doctor? Absolutely! A real doctor with a unique purpose. What your doctor of Chiropractic can offer, no other doctor can.
Chiropractic is Only Efficient For Back Pain.
The benefits of chiropractic are much more distinguished than assisting with just back pain.The wide- ranging detrimental effects of the vertebral subluxation manifest in a wide variety of health challenges and conditions besides back pain.
Most chiropractors focus their practice on improving someones overall health by adjusting all subluxations in the body and not just the ones associated with back pain or any other symptom. The reality is, most subluxations won’t have associated symptoms for years. Correcting these subluxations is still very important because they are a detriment to your health whenever they’re present.
Chiropractic Care is Very Expensive.
Your personal quality of life is the very KEY to understanding this myth.
Those who have experienced long-term care and the chiropractic lifestyle acknowledge that chiropractic care does not cost, IT PAYS!!! A study done in 1996 (Coulter et al, TopClinChiro) showed eighty-seven% of long-time Chiropractic patients saw their health as being excellent, took way less medications to zero, and experienced less chronic conditions associated with ageing.
Think of Chiropractic as a “Registered Retirement Savings Plan” for your body…it may cost a bit now, but the payoff is incomputable. As a matter of fact, even in our rediculously over-priced health care system we have here in the USA, millions of people value chiropractic enough to be more than willing to pay for their care with their own hard-earned money. We appreciate that fact, and it encourages us to work as hard as possible to deliver the best care possible to our patients.
Spinal Adjustments Are Uncomfortable.
Most times a Chiropractic Spinal Adjustment itself won’t hurt at all.
In fact, a great sense of relief will be experienced. There are some occasions where it may feel like someone is momentarily pressing on a bruise. The important thing to remember is while your body is adapting to your adjustments, you may experience some additional discomfort, similar to the sensation of tender muscles after starting an exercise program.
Over time, as your nervous system incorporates the effects of the adjustments, most people feel a continuing sense of ease and well-being! This is one reason many people make chiropractic the foundation of their wellness lifestyle.
