Chiropractic care is safe, painless and cost effective for all ages. Quality chiropractic care provides natural, pain-free healing that helps children and adults function better for optimal health and better life quality.
We would like you to debunk these chiropractic myths for us. How do you respond to:
Myth 1: Chiropractic adjustments hurt
Dr. Scott Gardner: The answer is no, when adjustments are done the correct way. There are so many different techniques. Some that are done by hand where you may feel or hear a click in the neck or a back and some done with an instrument where there is no clicking sound, there is no bending, there is no twisting of the spine. Very, very gentle and very, very effective.
Myth 2: Chiropractic adjustments are not safe for children
Dr. Scott Gardner: In our office, we’ve been blessed with a practice that is made up of probably almost 50% of children under the age of 12. We find when children are adjusted regularly, they become healthier, depend less on medications and more on their body’s ability to function properly.
Myth 3: Chiropractic doctors only treat back pain
Dr. Scott Gardner: Most of the people that come through our doors initially do have some type of back or neck pain but as they start to understand negative effects that subluxations really do have on the nervous system, they start to see the connection between chiropractic and overall health. But even more important, they start to see it for themselves and that’s why people who get adjusted regularly really do get sick less often, take less medications, have fewer surgeries and enjoy life at a much higher level.
Myth 4: Chiropractic care is expensive, and not covered by insurance
Dr. Scott Gardner: There have been numerous studies done that compare the expense of chiropractic care and back surgery and they’ve found that chiropractic care was less expensive and more effective. Most insurances do pay something towards chiropractic care but none cover it a hundred percent. In our office, we’ve always done our best to create the most cost effective programs and options that meet everyone’s needs.
