Myths About Chiropractic

Here is the truth about.


Chiropractic doctors are well educated. After the required pre-med undergraduate studies, today’s Doctor of Chiropractic completes an additional four-year program at a chiropractic college.

Doctors of Chiropractic are real doctors. Like other types of doctors, chiropractic doctors meet stringent licensing requirements, follow a strict code of ethics, and are approved by governmental agencies.

Chiropractic is scientific. As sophisticated diagnostic equipment becomes available, researchers are affirming what chiropractic doctors have known all along. A consistent scientific protocol is used to locate malfunctioning areas of the spine.


Chiropractic adjustments make sense. Like lifting a heavy rock off your toe, most patients report their chiropractic adjustments feel good. When the bones of the spine return to a more normal position and motion, nervous system function can be restored, symptoms relieved, and the natural healing process can proceed.

Chiropractic is safe. This year thousands of people will die from medically prescribed drugs and medicine. Of the millions of patients benefiting from chiropractic this year, only a handful will have a negative newsworthy experience.

Continue as long as you want. Like regular dental checkups, once patients experience the value of chiropractic, many choose to continue. How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.

The truth is, chiropractic is a conservative, drug-free approach to better health that has helped millions of people since 1895.
