Do you think chiropractors are doctors? It seems like there is a lot of controversy surrounding the issue. There are some people that think chiropractors are just quacks out to get your money. I believe in a lot of alternative health and natural healing, and I think chiropractors do amazing things.
Are Chiropractors safe?
One of the most frequent questions I get asked when people learn I see a chiropractor is whether or not chiropractors are safe. I think the act of adjusting someone’s bones back into position looks (and sounds) kind of crazy. I know that the first time I saw a chiropractor adjust someone’s neck I was sure the person would be in a world of pain!
Is Chiropractic a scam?
Chiropractors have a reputation for being a rip off. I am sure that some of them are (in fact, I went to one where I live now and I ended up owing him $200!), but you really need to find a chiropractor that’s good. Ask around and do your research online, because nothing’s better than facts from patients when it comes to doctors. I know before I went to my chiropractor I made sure that I was going to a trusted chiropractor and that I wasn’t going to be ripped off. In fact, my chiropractor made a deal with me where he charges me $20 a visit no matter what my insurance pays.
What do Chiropractors treat?
I used to have horrible lower back pain, TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome), and knee problems. Since going to a chiropractor my lower back pain has dramatically decreased, my TMJ is better, and the orthotics he provided have been helping my knees. I know when I need a chiropractic adjustment, and make an appointment accordingly.
I know that when I first started going to the chiropractor, he wanted me to go three times a week. I told him I couldn’t afford that and I would come when I could. He was okay with that.
Do you think chiropractors are a waste of money? Would you see a chiropractor?
