Chiropractic Myth Busters

MYTH: Chiropractic adjustments hurt.


TRUTH: Chiropractic adjustments do not cause pain, but instead provide relief to pain. The sensation you feel when you get adjusted is a massage-like manipulation that realigns your joints relieving pain. There is rarely any discomfort in an adjustment, and most patients report feeling nearly instant relief from their pain following an adjustment.


MYTH: Chiropractors can only help with back pain.


TRUTH: Chiropractic care can treat all areas of the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Chiropractic treatment can helps with neck pain, hand and foot pain, and even stomach pain. Since your body is interconnected, all moveable joints in your body can be adjusted to help relieve pain.


MYTH: I cannot afford chiropractic.


TRUTH: Chiropractic can save patients thousands of dollars worth of unnecessary medical treatments, surgeries, and procedures naturally. Dr. Steven Perry chiropractic is affordable. We charge $40 a visit and take many forms of insurance. We also offer a free examination and consultation.


MYTH: Chiropractic care is not for me.


TRUTH: Chiropractic care can relieve pain for patients of all ages, genders, and individuals with a variety of health conditions. We treat patients suffering from injuries from car accidents, long term injuries, underlying health conditions such as arthritis, and those with acute pain. Chiropractic care is a natural, non-invasive way to treat pain.
