Even though chiropractic care has been rising in popularity for years now, untrue rumors about the practice always seem to be swirling. If someone overhears someone just mentioning chiropractic treatment, they feel the need to chime in with the myths that they’ve heard, even though they have never gone to a chiropractor themselves. At Adams Health Center in Plano, we’d like to debunk these rumors in case you’re wary about making an appointment. If you’re currently suffering from neck or back pain, we’re here to help. Make an appointment now or simply walk into our health center today!

Chiropractic Care is Dangerous

One of the most common myths that we’ve heard is that chiropractic treatment is dangerous and actually causes more harm than good. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, seeking spinal manipulation and adjustments from your friend who watched a video online is certainly dangerous, but when performed by a licensed and trained doctor of chiropractic services is incredibly safe and beneficial. In fact, chiropractic care is a safer alternative than surgery, and also requires no drugs such as painkillers that can cause a variety of problems and just masks your symptoms instead of finding and helping the root cause.

Only Adults Can See Chiropractors

Many parents are skeptical about chiropractic care for their children, thinking that it could cause harm or is unnecessary for kids, but this simply isn’t the case. When your child visits a chiropractor they’ll be receiving non-invasive care that is an effective treatment for a variety of child-related ailments as well as encourages them to live a balanced, healthy lifestyle.

Chiropractic Treatment is Pricey

Some people avoid going to the chiropractor having the false assumption that treatment will do damage on their bank account. But the truth of the matter is that chiropractic care is much more affordable than traditional medicine, and is also covered by the majority of health insurance providers because of the proven benefits that it provides.

Chiropractic Care is Ineffective

Although countless people swear by the benefits that chiropractic care has provided them, there are still people (that have never been to the chiropractor) that claim that chiropractic treatment is ineffective and even go so far as to claim that the practice is a scam. This is incredibly untrue and can be disproven by any of our regular patients.
