Common Myths and Facts about Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic is a system of effective healthcare treatment that is focused on treating back pain, improving bodily functions, and aiding the body in its healing process. Invented in 1985 by Daniel David Palmer, chiropractic has gained worldwide acceptance since that time, usually associated with the alleviation of back pain, scoliosis and the rest.

One of the most important figures in the history of chiropractic care was Dr. Clarence Selmer Gonstead (1898 – 1978). He was the creator of the now universally popular Gonstead technique. Numerous people over the years have undergone training in the Gonstead technique to become Gonstead chiropractors.

Despite the general acceptance of chiropractic worldwide, several unfounded myths about it remain, and they serve to cast aspersions and mislead the public on the practice of chiropractic. This is because, to a very large extent, the general public still does not understand what chiropractic care is all about.

One of the most common myths or misconceptions about chiropractic care is that it is not a professional or conventional or scientific form of medical care. Despite the well-documented benefits of chiropractic care, it is still widely believed that mainstream medicine frowns on the practice. The fact is, all chiropractors have to obtain professional training in order to practise.

Another common misconception is that adjusting the spinal is a dangerous and ineffective procedure. First, it is no more dangerous to adjust the spinal than to say carrying out everyday tasks or movement. Spinal adjustment is in fact, very safe when performed by a trained Gonstead chiropractor in a specific manner. It’s a matter of getting training in order to effectively perform the task, and well-trained chiropractors do no damage to the spinal cord. Instead, they adjust it into a much better position to help your body be more effective.

Now that we’ve seen some myths about chiropractic care, let’s look at some facts about it. For starters, most people don’t know that chiropractors undergo formal training and receive certification in order to become chiropractic professionals. Much like one goes to college in order to become a surgeon, people also go to college in order to become chiropractors. In fact, both medical students and chiropractors have similar amounts of classroom time in college. They also have a lab and clinical internships like medical students. Chiropractic is a recognized science.

Furthermore, chiropractic care is a better way to alleviate pain than medicines and pharmaceuticals. Whenever we feel a pain in any part of our body, it has become a ritual to reach for the nearest painkiller and consume. Even though this approach works, it is obviously not very healthy for the body since most times it alleviates pain by inhibiting certain nerve functions. Additionally, most medicines are synthetic and not natural to the human body.

On the other hand, chiropractic is a much better, more natural remedy to pain because it simply involves the adjustment of the structure of the body into a better, more efficient position to enhance bodily functions. It’s fair to say that chiropractic is addressing the cause of the problem while medicines are merely addressing symptoms.
