Many people seem to have strong misconceptions about the chiropractic profession. From medical doctors, physiotherapist, beauticians, bakers to your neighbour, people seem to have no idea what a chiropractor actually does, yet they will do anything to tell others that chiropractic is based on quackery and that it can be dangerous to a person’s wellbeing.
Chiropractors are often seen as “back doctors” because people have often seen chiropractors, whether in person or online on a YouTube video, pressing on the patient’s back. “It is a logical assumption, but not a correct one” says Annika, the chiropractic advisor at The Right Chiro. We often see that professions are not defined by their objectives, but rather by the tools they primarily use.
For example, a dentist and a chiropractor may both use an X-ray machine in their daily practice routines. The fact that both professional health care specialists use an X-ray machine does not mean they have the same goals for your care. The reason why the dentist is likely to take an X-ray of a patient is quite different, they are of course looking at your teeth. A chiropractor would be focused on your spinal column.
The healthcare practitioner’s objective determines their field of expertise and their focus for your health, not the tools they might use. Chiropractors examine the spinal column because they try to determine where certain types of vertebral problems are present. These abnormalities, that we call vertebral subluxations, can interfere with the functioning of the human nervous system.
So chiropractors are actually experts who deal with the relationship between your spinal column and nervous system. And by now we know that your nervous system controls and regulates the rest of your body. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to function and live the way we do.
It is always interesting to see how people react when they hear about the real purpose of chiropractic. We see many clients who say “I came here for my back pain or neck pain, but since I have been here I also don’t notice my hay fever or headaches anymore”.
*Other things we often hear in our practice is that our clients and their children experience less or no more acid reflux, tinnitus or ear infections, carpal tunnel syndrome, constipation, better digestion, improved sight, no more knee or shoulder pain.
Imagine this was something you experienced. Imagine having less pain, and at the same time more energy to play with your children or work more efficiently.
We are very fast becoming a very sick country, or world, with an ever-increasing number of new diseases on the horizon every year. These diseases include developmental, degenerative and viral or infections. Just look at COVID for a second, how many new variants have we had in the past two years? How many people have you seen suffer because their immune system wasn’t strong enough to fight the disease? How much of that suffering was necessary?
“As a chiropractor, I am very aware of what we at The Right Chiro have to offer to our community. We want to help you reconnect to your ability to heal.” says Justin, the owner and chiropractor at The Right Chiro.
Chiropractic has always received a lot of public scepticism. The reason for this scepticism is that chiropractic has always been a very misunderstood health profession. Lots of people think that chiropractic care is used mostly for pain in your neck or back. We think it is more important than ever that people in our community have a good understanding of what chiropractic is all about. We want you to understand what chiropractic care can offer you and your loved ones.
