Myth nr. 1A chiropractic adjustment hurts

So, most people perceive chiropractic adjustments to be painful. Chiropractic adjustments are NOT painful, in fact most people actually feel a sense of relief when being adjusted.

A very important part of the chiropractic adjustment is that of the chiropractor explaining the whole procedure to you. We do this by taking a detailed case history; doing a thorough examination and then clarifying the root cause of the problem. Primary areas of subluxations and dysfunction. If indicated the specific adjustment we will use to remove interference to your nervous system will be explained to you in a way you or your family member can understand it.

When you are in the hands of a skilled chiropractor, who knows what he/she is doing, you don't have anything to fear. Do not let your fear of an adjustment keep you from getting healthy, staying healthy and having the best lifestyle possible.

Myth nr. 2 Chiropractic care is expensive

As Chiropractors we often hear the phrase: ‘I wish I had considered less-invasive health options sooner’ or ‘I wish somebody had told me about chiropractic before.’

So many people are unaware of their own body's ability to heal themselves when interference is removed. If you consider the amount of money you would have to pay for surgical intervention, a new perspective of wellness care arise. Remember, medical bills are sky high compared to regular chiropractic care.

If you live in a country where your medical aid supports chiropractic care, make sure you consider good mediacal aid coverage that can atleast cover 2 adjustments per month, that is depending on your age, lifestyle and health objectives you wish to achieve.

Several studies indicate that Chiropractic care is more cost-effective than traditional medicine. Here are a few:

The birthing process can be considered as the very first major traumatic event in a person’s life, especially if there has been external intervention by means of forceps, vacuum suction and cesarean section. As babies and infants grow up to be strong and healthy heroes, they experience around 2000 falls before they turn three. 200 of these falls are considered serious.

Chiropractic adjustments can minimize the negative effects that can result from subluxated spines after such falls.

It is fundamental to keep the nervous system of a growing child free of interference so that every cell in their body receives the correct information at the right time, allowing them to grow up strong and healthy.
