These Painful Conditions Can Effectively And Efficiently By Chiropractic Care.
At LifeWorks Integrative Health in Kansas we specialize in providing customized, friendly treatment on a customized basis to return your body back to optimal health. Unfortunately, there are some people who believe chiropractic care can be unhealthy, damage, or not worth the costs.
That couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, chiropractic care is one of the most beneficial treatments you can give to your body, as it is an all-encompassing service that maintains your internal balance and aids in pain management, injury recovery, the health of your central nervous system, and a whole lot more without the aid of medications or surgery. Over 40 million people in the United States visit a chiropractor regularly. Those numbers, and the results, don’t lie.
We will do our best to debunk the common misconceptions associated with chiropractic care, and instead point toward the positive effects visiting a chiropractor can have on your body and mind.
Myth 1: Chiropractic Care Causes Stroke
This is one of the most damaging misconceptions that chiropractors have to deal with on a regular basis. We unpacked this misconception extensively in an earlier article “The Myth Of Stroke Risk And Chiropractic Care”, but let’s do a quick recap for the sake of covering all of our bases. Basically, there are a few primary risk factors which can lead to a stroke in any individual, whether or not they receive chiropractic care. Those factors include: Heart disease, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and smoking. None of those have anything to do with chiropractic care, and in fact, a nine-year study that included 110 million people per year found there was no greater risk associated with chiropractic care and stroke. Adding to that, adjustments from your chiropractor is known to improve those risk areas by providing internal balance and alignment, which allows nerve signaling throughout the body to be more efficient.
Myth 2: Chiropractors Only Treat Back Pain
Again, this is false. Our chiropractors in Shawnee and Overland Park treat a myriad of ailments and areas, including (but certainly not limited to):
- Neck pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Muscle strains/sprains
- Knee pain
Myth 3: Chiropractic Care Is Dangerous
Chiropractic care is a safe, efficient, and beneficial way for patients to find relief for a variety of health conditions. It can be preventative, allowing you to maintain proper alignment and self-healing, or it can be a form of pain management after an injury or disorder pops up unexpectedly. Our chiropractors are caring and attentive, and their adjustments don’t involve your bones cracking as you may be led to believe. Instead, the noises you may hear during a professional adjustment is likely a release of air or gas in between joints. There’s no need to feel afraid of this process or the sound.
