The top 6 common myths about chiropractic treatment: Part Two!

Many people in Peterborough continue to have questions about the role that chiropractors play in the healthcare team, and what benefit chiropractic care may have to their health.

While you can always book a no-obligation comprehensive evaluation at PTBO Chiro to discuss your specific needs, today we’re busting Myth #2 in our series on some commonly shared chiropractic myths:

 Myth #2: Chiropractors are not ‘real’ doctors

Chiropractors are regulated in all 10 Canadian provinces, and are designated to use the title “doctor” similar to physicians, optometrists and dentists after completing the extensive Doctor of Chiropractic degree program. Those professions who are recognized to use the “doctor” title have extensive training in their area of expertise that allows them to be diagnosticians – to provide a diagnosis.

When we meet people in Peterborough to discuss their back pain, neck pain, sciatica, numbness & tingling, headaches, or other chronic pain, we always conduct a thorough evaluation.

This evaluation includes orthopedic testing, digital x-rays, hands-on palpation, and a comprehensive medical history. This way, we can get to the root cause of the concerns and design an appropriate treatment plan to meet your health and wellness goals. The patient is always a partner with our chiropractors in getting the best results possible.
