Myth 4: “Chiropractic is only effective for back pain”

Some chiropractors choose to focus only on caring for people who have back pain. Vertebral subluxation often contributes to this condition and the available research indicates that chiropractic is one of the most effective approaches in helping people with spinal pain.

However, the benefits of chiropractic are much greater than just helping with pain. The wide-ranging detrimental effects of the vertebral subluxation manifest in a variety of health challenges and conditions.

The majority of chiropractors focus their practice on improving an individual’s overall health by correcting all subluxations in the body, not just the ones associated with back pain or any other symptom.

Most subluxations have no associated symptoms as only a small percentage of nerves actually sense pain signals. Correcting these subluxations is still very important because they are a detriment to your health whenever they are present.

Chiropractic can have a major positive impact on anyone’s health, from newborns to geriatrics. Reducing nerve interference allows the full expression of the body’s inborn ability to repair and thrive, regardless of age, condition, or the presence or absence of symptoms or disease.
