Common misconceptions of Chiropractic Care

Updated: Jun 21

At Aviva Family Chiropractic in San Juan, we love learning from our clients. Recently we were surprised to hear a new client mention that they believed Chiropractic Care was only for aging adults or people experiencing pain from car accidents. Here are other common misconceptions about Chiropractic Care:

1. Chiropractic Care for low back pain and neck pain

Spinal manipulation can help relieve pain and improve function in people with acute low-back pain and neck pain, but that is not all. Chiropractic adjustments have many benefits and can also help manage:

- Arthritis

- Frequent headaches

- Healing after an accident or whiplash

- Joint pain and dysfunction

- Mobility

- Sciatica

- Stiff muscles or muscle aches

2. Chiropractic Care for children

Some clients are surprised to learn that children can benefit from regular chiropractic care. Chiropractic Care can help children with posture, especially if they are carrying heavy backpacks or using handheld devices. It is important to help children start good posture habits early while using handheld devices and gaming devices. A visit with your Chiropractor can help start good posture and health habits early. It is a great idea to schedule a chiropractic visit as a Back to School routine.

3. Chiropractic Care for car accidents

Chiropractors use a variety of tools and techniques to realign individual vertebrae and restore joint flexibility after a car accident. But not just car accidents, chiropractic is one of the best ways to treat and heal from many types of injuries. Sports injuries, falls, accidents, even discomfort from traveling or sleeping wrong. Chiropractic works by restoring the normal function of your spine, allowing the tissues to heal and become pain-free. Benefits of spinal manipulation and other services offered by doctors of chiropractic include decreased inflammation and pain, restored range of motion and reduced scar tissue.

4. Chiropractic Care for low mobility

Chiropractic Care can benefit clients with low mobility, but it also helps maintain mobility for clients that are healthy and active. Low mobility can run risks of falls and injuries, cause weight gain and prevent us from participating in the activities we enjoy. As we age, or as our bodies manage the physical effects of demanding physical activity or prolonged sitting, our mobility can become threatened. Chiropractic Care and Assisted Stretch sessions can help slow the process of degeneration and maintain proper alignment. If you’re looking for natural ways to regain or maintain mobility, make an appointment at Aviva Family Chiropractic. We offer Assisted Stretch Sessions along with Chiropractic Care to help the entire body function better.

5. Chiropractic Care for pinched nerves

A pinched nerve is a common complaint that can cause a wide variety of symptoms from pain to numbness. Chiropractic can resolve a pinched nerve and other causes of pain, discomfort and low mobility because it is able to address the root of the problem.

In many cases, the condition can be resolved quickly through chiropractic care.
