A Chiropractor Debunks Common Chiropractic Myths

Dr. Shawn Thistle, a chiropractor with various qualifications, discusses the top 5 most common chiropractic myths in this video. He emphasizes that a significant part of their practice involves debunking these misconceptions that patients often come in with.

Here are 5 common chiropractic myths debunked. 
  1. Chiropractors Aren’t Real Doctors”:

    • One common myth is that chiropractors are not legitimate healthcare professionals. In reality, chiropractors go through extensive education and training to become licensed practitioners.

  2. Chiropractic Adjustments Are Dangerous”:

    • Some people believe that chiropractic adjustments are risky or harmful. However, when performed by a qualified chiropractor, these adjustments are generally safe and effective for certain musculoskeletal issues.

  3. “Chiropractic Can Cure Any Ailment”:

    • It’s a misconception that chiropractic care can treat all health problems. Chiropractors primarily focus on issues related to the spine and musculoskeletal system, so they may not be the solution for every medical condition.

  4. “Once You Start Chiropractic Care, You Must Continue Forever”:

    • Another myth is that once you begin chiropractic treatment, you’re committed to lifelong care. While some patients benefit from ongoing chiropractic visits for maintenance, it’s not necessary for everyone.
  5. “Chiropractors Only Treat Back Pain”:

    • Chiropractors can address more than just back pain. They may also help with neck pain, headaches, joint issues, and other musculoskeletal problems. Their scope of practice extends beyond just spinal health.
