Even though chiropractic care has become mainstream, unfortunately a lot of old myths still exist. Today we’re going to tackle some of the most common misconceptions about chiropractic care and set the record straight once and for all.

  1. The biggest myth we hear is that chiropractors aren’t real doctors. This couldn’t be farther from the truth! In fact, chiropractors have more hours of classroom education than medical doctors. In fact, all of our main chiropractors are Doctors of Chiropractic! As part of their education, chiropractic students also complete a residency working with real patients in a clinical setting, supervised by licensed doctors of chiropractic. Unlike standard medical doctors, whom you visit when you have a symptom to be treated, chiropractors offer adjustments to improve spinal alignment and overall well-being before symptoms develop.
  2. Another myth we hear (and laugh at) is that medical doctors don’t like chiropractors! While in the early days, this could have held true, in the past 20 or so years the opinion of most medical doctors has changed. In fact, several major studies have shown the superiority of chiropractic in helping people with a host of conditions, and medical doctors developed a better understanding as to what chiropractors actually do.
