Top 5 Most Common Myths About Chiropractic Care from our Beaverton Chiropractor

Chiropractor treating patient suffering from back pain

As your choice local Beaverton chiropractor, we are proud to provide a wide range of holistic healing services to patients of all ages. Whether you are interested in preventative chiropractic care, you have a child who could benefit from pediatric chiropractic treatment or you’re in need of a prescription drug-free pain management alternative, our friendly and experienced team is here to help.

1. Chiropractic Adjustments are Painful

Most chiropractic patients report that they feel an immediate sense of relief from their aches and pains after treatment. Our Beaverton and Tigard chiropractic team use targeted and gradual adjustments that are designed to shift the body in a specific way to help provide motion to joints that may be locked up or stiff.

2. Chiropractic Treatment is Very Expensive

Recent studies have shown that chiropractic care is much more cost-effective than traditional treatment methods. On average, costs for patients who visit a chiropractor for their low back pain instead of a medical doctor are about 40 percent lower.

3. If I Begin Treatment I’ll Have to Continue for the Rest of My Life

Treatment timelines will vary for each patient and depend on the type and/or severity of your musculoskeletal condition. Regular chiropractic adjustments are an important part of a healthy lifestyle and designed to help patients enjoy an optimal level of overall wellness but they are not mandatory.

4. Chiropractic Adjustments Can Be Dangerous

Chiropractic adjustments are safe and effective enough that they can be sued to treat patients of all ages, even expectant mothers. In fact, chiropractors pay less for malpractice insurance coverage than any other type of doctor!

5. Chiropractor Can Only Treat Neck and Back Pain

Chiropractic care helps to maintain movement in the joints of the spine to correct vertebral subluxations. However, our chiropractor applies that same knowledge to treat pain and injuries in the neck, shoulders, hands, knees, ankles, and feet.
