Chiropractic Myths

There are a few people that talk about chiropractic and how it hurts. I’m going to do something very special today because… I think, once you know the truth, you’ll know why these are myths.


Myth #1 – A Chiropractic Adjustment Hurts


FACT: Most patients actually feel a sense of relief, and the adjustment will cause no pain.  As a doctor of chiropractic I make adjustments to your spine through specific movements – shifting the body to provide motion to joints that may be “locked up.”


Myth #2 – Chiropractic Care is Very Expensive 


FACT: Studies indicate that chiropractic care is actually more cost-effective than traditional medicine.  Some doctors and several researchers examined data from 85,000 people utilizing Blue Cross Blue Shield over a period of 2 years.  They found that people who received treatment for low back pain through a chiropractic doctor instead of a medical doctor — incurred costs that were 40% lower!

Now I don’t know about you, but that sounds like chiropractic care is actually less expensive. I don’t know the last time you were in the hospital, but if you’re in there at least three days, your bill will be over RM300,000 dollars on most occasions.
