Chiropractic care, as you may have heard, has a lot of nay-sayers. Many people believe that chiropractic care is a quack practice and isn’t based in science. This is simply not true. Now, I can understand if you don’t want to take my word for it, but thankfully you don’t have to. There have been numerous studies conducted which show that there is some form of truth and scientific basis to the spinal manipulation that chiropractic doctors employ to make you feel better. There are even full medical journals published specially for chiropractic care.
It has been estimated that doctors of chiropractic medicine treat more than 30 million Americans, both adults and children, every year. If there was something that was dangerous or didn’t work about chiropractic care not only would the numbers not be that high, but surely we would have heard about unsatisfactory results. When I say doctors of chiropractic medicine, I do in fact mean doctors. Chiropractors, contrary to unfortunate popular belief, are in fact people who have gone through medical training and put through a rigorous study in college. This means they have gone to medical school, and graduated, just like any other doctor you may meet. These schools must be accredited by the U.S. Department of Education in order for them to receive a doctor’s license to be able to accept and treat patients.
Although chiropractic care does not receive as much funding as other forms of health and medicine, there have been studies done and an increasing amount of them are beginning to prove that chiropractic care is safe and effective. While most people think of chiropractic care for the spine and neck, it can be used for a variety of ailments. The medical community is realizing that the drug-free, non-invasive ways of chiropractic care are highly effective and can be used for more than just pain in the back.
Looking to chiropractic care for what ails you is not time wasted. It has been shown time and time again to be effective in a large number of issues. Chiropractors can also offer ideas of how to change your lifestyle or give nutritional advice for you. Most insurance will cover, at least partly, a chiropractic visit, and so trying it has very little risk. Come into Wirth today and see what we can do for you.
