Common Myths About Chiropractic Treatment
April 24th, 2019 by Synergy Admin
Chiropractic treatment has been around for over a century, but it is still met with skepticism by some people. At Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™, we have been able to help patients reach their full physical potential and wellness with chiropractic techniques. Therefore, we would like to dispel some of the common myths about chiropractic treatment.
To be a chiropractor, you must complete a science-focused undergraduate course load, earn a Doctor of Chiropractic degree, complete a residency, and then pass a state certification exam. All certified chiropractors have an extensive background in studying human anatomy & physiology, rehabilitation and other health systems. There is also a heavy emphasis on clinical training that creates the opportunity to perfect the delivery of quality patient-care.
Chiropractic techniques are just temporary fixes
The chiropractic techniques that we perform at Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™ are designed to help patients make physical improvements in as few sessions as possible. Some patients have injuries or conditions that are more significant, so relief can understandably take more than one appointment to accomplish.
One of the greatest benefits of Chiropractic medicine is that it doesn’t require medicine or surgical procedures. This allows patients to improve their health and wellness in a more natural way.
Only people with back pain can benefit from chiropractic treatment
A large quantity of people may need chiropractic treatment because of a back injury, but this only scratches the surface on its potential benefits. Since nerves pass from the spinal cord when delivering electrical signals to other areas of the body, proper spinal alignment is of vital importance. Therefore, if patients want to operate at their peak performance, specialized attention should be given to this area of the body.
The spine influences other bodily systems, so chiropractic treatment can solve much more than back pain. Our experienced team of chiropractors can help reduce the symptoms associated with pinched nerves, arthritis, joint pain, muscle strains, headaches, concussions and more.
Chiropractic medicine is dangerous
Patient-safety is the primary concern during any type of treatment. Our chiropractors at Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™ are experienced with safely helping people eliminate pain or prevent future injury through customized techniques and cutting-edge technology. Additionally, chiropractic medicine is a much safer pain management alternative than opioids or other chemical methods. The notion that it’s dangerous has become an outdated-myth because of the incredible results that have been safely attained by millions of patients each year.
Our whole team at Synergy Sports Wellness Institute™ is proud to have helped many patients with our chiropractic treatment over the years.
