10 Things Many People Don’t Know About Chiropractic

  1. Pain is the LAST symptom of a problem, not the FIRST.


  1. Athletes use chiropractors to stay well and perform better, not just for the occasional injury.


  1. The body does not perform as a cluster of separate mechanisms, but rather a cascade of events that all starts with proper control by the nervous system.


  1. Doctors don’t heal you.  You do. 


  1. Chiropractic is for all ages…as long as there is a spine and a pulse.


  1. Chiropractors know about more than just the back bone.  Knowledge of all the body systems and how they are affected by the spine is key.


  1. Successful chiropractic patients take an active role in their health.


  1. Chiropractic may help you get sick less. Many studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments increase your immunity.


  1. “Chiropractic is addictive” is a myth.  So is “Brushing your teeth is addictive” and “Mowing your lawn is addictive.”  We simply do these things on a regular basis because it’s a good idea.


  1. Adjustments don’t hurt.  A skilled chiropractor can use either hands-on or instrument adjusting techniques that are painless and non-invasive.
