The top 6 common myths about chiropractic treatment

Many people suffering with back pain 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 some commonly shared chiropractic myths:

Myth #1: Once you see a chiropractor you have to keep going back

This is false.

When seeking care from a chiropractor, we will perform an assessment including a history and physical examination to determine the cause of the pain or dysfunction. From these observations, a diagnosis will be made and the treatment plan developed in collaboration with the patient – according to their needs and goals.

The treatment plan will recommend a number of initial visits to see if the patient responds to care and scheduled re-evaluations. Depending on the patient and the condition, the recommended course of care may vary.

Ultimately, the decision to continue care is yours. As a patient, if you have questions or concerns about care, you should feel comfortable to ask the chiropractor for more information on the recommendations made and address any concerns. The care plan should be part of a shared decision making between the patient and practitioner.
