Myth: Chiropractors are not as educated as other doctors.
Fact: Doctors of Chiropractic receive just as much educational training as Medical Doctors.
After completing an undergraduate degree, Chiropractors spend 4 years in training to become a doctor of chiropractic. Their studies include basic sciences; physics, chemistry, anatomy and more. As well as physiological therapeutics in practice, diagnostic imaging, chiropractic technique and case management. Dr. Thompson read over 700 hours of x-rays before he became a chiropractor! That is a huge amount more than medical doctors receive. When looking at x-rays, doctors are trained to look for disease and breaks, chiropractors are trained to look at the overall alignment of the bones.
Myth: Popping joints causes arthritis.
Fact: Popping in your joints does not cause arthritis.
The motion provided by popping the joints means life. Motion is life. When motion stops, that is when stagnation and degeneration occur. Popping helps improve blood and nerve flow.
In 1929 there was a study conducted at Harvard University to disprove chiropractic care. They dissected cadavers. 100% of the diseased organs in those cadavers linked back to spine misalignment. You can click here for a diagram of which organs are connected to which vertebrae.
"Chiropractic is an absolute miracle worker. Every time I’m suffering from headaches, nausea, sleep problems or pain, I’m always amazed that Dr. Thompson’s adjustments make the problems disappear."
