Safe And Effective Pain Relief
Although Chiropractic Care has been used as a very safe and effective pain relief treatment, there still remains some Chiropractic Myths. Licensed Chiropractors provide an alternative healthcare approach that may seem foreign to some people who have always relied on traditional medical care. The experienced chiropractic medical professionals at Caron Chiropractic Clinic in St. Paul, MN, have been providing Non-invasive, Holistic therapies for nearly two decades. We are able to correct some spinal abnormalities without drugs or surgery.
Myth #1: a Chiropractor is Not a Real Doctor
A Licensed Chiropractor must have a 4 Year Graduate Degree from a nationally recognized institution. He or she will have also completed an undergraduate program. Studies include anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, microbiology, neurology, and many others. After passing National Boards exams, the graduate is accepted as a Doctor or Chiropractic Care and a Primary Care Physician.
Myth #2: Chiropractic Care is for Back Pain Only
The scope of Chiropractic Care goes well beyond treating back pain. A Licensed Chiropractor has been trained to provide care for every joint in the body as well as soft tissue injury. Correcting spinal misalignment opens up nerve passageways that travel to every part of your body. We are able to treat many conditions including headaches, whiplash injury, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many others.
Myth #3: Spinal Adjustments Cause Pain
Spinal Adjustments are made by applying precise but gentle pressure to specific areas of the spine. Spinal manipulation should never hurt. Some people suffering from severe pain in the neck or back may feel minor discomfort. Most patients report a sense of relief following an adjustment.
Myth #4: Medical Doctors Do Not Accept Chiropractic Care
It is becoming more and more common for medical doctors to refer their patients for chiropractic care. Likewise, more doctors and nurses seek out chiropractic care for themselves and their family members. It is not uncommon to see a Licensed Chiropractor on staff at a medical clinic.
Myth #5: During An Adjustment Your Bones Will Grind Against Each Other
Manipulating the spine can cause a cracking or popping sound. This is actually the sound of an expansion of gas inside of the joint space. Spinal adjustments do not affect the bones on either side of the spine. Rather it affects the connective tissues such as ligaments, tendons and muscles that hold the joint into place.
