Myth #4 - You can crack your back instead of going to the chiropractor’s office.
Fact: Many people confuse “popping” or “cracking” their back with a chiropractic adjustment. These two things are the same in only the basic idea. You cannot hand paint and canvas to a toddler and expect him or her to create a masterpiece. That takes expertise, training and an intimate knowledge of the act. While popping your own neck or back may relieve some of the tension you feel for a short period of time, chiropractic care is the art and science of actually correcting the proper placement of the spine and requires the training and expertise of a doctor of chiropractic.
There are many myths and miscommunications about chiropractic care. If you have further questions about this safe and natural treatment, contact your chiropractic team. They can explain exactly how hands-on care works to improve your health. Don’t believe the rumors; make an appointment today with your chiropractor to find out for yourself whether or not chiropractic care is right for you.
