Common Misconceptions about Chiropractic Care

12 February

If you’re like most people who have never had chiropractic care, you may have a few questions and maybe even a few reservations. That’s ok and it’s perfectly normal! In fact, it’s good to ask questions and take precaution when it comes to your health. However, we hate seeing people miss out on being at 100% because of their reservations—we want you feel your best! Here are a few common misconceptions some people have about chiropractic care.

M: Chiropractic care will take a very long time, and I’ll have to invest a significant amount of money before I see any results.

A: Continuous ongoing chiropractic care does have many long-term benefits for most people, but depending on what specific problem you are experiencing, you may start to see results in a relatively short period of time. Oftentimes when patients come with specific and identifiable pain or other issues, we’re able to begin addressing it immediately. One of the benefits of working with highly-trained chiropractors like the doctors at ProHealth is that they have the experience to diagnose accurately and can often begin treating right away. This only comes with years of experience and training.

M: I’ll have to pay out of my pocket for chiropractic care.

A: Every insurance plan is different. While it’s certainly true that some insurance plans don’t cover chiropractic care, very many plans do. You can always check with your provider to find out, but don’t just assume it’s not included in your plan. Some plans even included a set amount of chiropractor visits with no out-of-pocket cost. It’s a “use it or lose it” feature of the plan for lack of a better term. Finally, even if your plan doesn’t cover chiropractic care, it can be surprisingly affordable—especially if you are able to prevent larger health issues from arising through your chiropractic care.

M: Chiropractic adjustments are painful

A: Understandably, people who have never been adjusted might feel nervous; however, chiropractic doctors are trained and skilled at making adjustments comfortable and effective. Many people report feeling a sense of calmness and relief after receiving an adjustment.
