As we enter a new year, many people make resolutions to improve their health and well-being. And even though one of the best ways to achieve this is by seeking out chiropractic care, some are still hesitant to visit a chiropractor. This could be your friend or family member. Or this person could be YOU. If you are someone wants to feel better but is afraid– we hope you can find time to read this article.
Going by experience, the common denominator why people are hesitant to see us is because of fear and misconceptions, like for example– chiropractic being ‘painful’.
To be fair, it could look painful at first glance. There are thousands of videos on Youtube where you can see how adjustments are done and you can hear how loud are those popping’ sounds. So yes, being scared by it is perfectly reasonable. However, we want to assure everyone that the reality is far from your fear and that the actual chiropractic experience is overall positive.
If you ask people who have gone to our clinic, you will know that most of them find adjustments gentle and comfortable. During an adjustment, we use our hands to apply a gentle, controlled force to a joint in the body. And while some patients may feel slight discomfort or pressure during an adjustment, it is not considered to be painful. If you are concerned about the popping sound from adjustments, you do not need to worry about it as it is a normal sound that’s made when a joint is adjusted. It doesn’t cause anything to break and it’s safe.
Another factor that causes doubt is when people think that chiropractors are not the right people to help them. Most of the time, the common understanding is that chiropractic is only useful with conditions that is linked to the spine and the nervous system alone. But the truth is, there’s a bigger picture, and the brain and spine is connected to all organs and even the smallest parts of the body. So if you account this fact, then you will realize that even headaches, frozen shoulders, numb hands or a painful hip can be attributed from a misalignment of the spine. So yes, you are very much welcome to consult us if you have these issues. We will run a thorough assessment to see if spinal correction is what you need to address your problems.
