There are a lot of myths and misconceptions floating around out there when it comes to chiropractors. At the very least, there tends to be a lot of simplifications. We started exploring this in a previous blog post where we looked at the notion that chiropractors only treat back pain. As we demonstrated, chiropractors treat a whole lot more than back pain! 

The professionals here at Revelation Chiropractic in Fort Collins thought it would be a good idea to continue to explore some of these simplifications and misconceptions. In today’s blog, we’ll be taking a look at a handful of little-known facts about chiropractors. And after you’re done reading these fun facts, be sure to contact Revelation Chiropractic for all of your chiropractor and massage therapy needs in Fort Collins!

Now, let’s take a look at some facts about chiropractors, shall we?

1. Chiropractors Treat The Whole Body

Let’s start by reiterating what we explored last week. In the movies, you’ll typically see chiropractors only treat the back or spine. But, as we established, we’re so much more than that. Chiropractors are focused on full-body health. This is just the tip of the tail, but regular chiropractic care can help with:

  • Allergies
  • Constipation
  • Cramping
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Migraines
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Menstrual Pain
  • Ulcers
  • Stress
  • Vertigo

The movies don’t do a good job showing just how beneficial chiropractic care can be! Visit our Why Chiropractic page to learn more about what a chiropractor can do for you.

2. Chiropractors Treat Tens Of Millions Of People 

As a matter of fact, in the U.S. alone, more than 35 million folks seek out chiropractic care annually. Believe it or not, that’s actually 10% of the entire population! More and more people are turning to chiropractic care for supplementary and primary care. 

These numbers are staggering, but it might come as an even bigger surprise to learn that more than one million people visit a chiropractor each and every day. With more and more people stuck in office chairs and staring at computer screens for huge portions of their day, there’s little wonder why more than a million people would be receiving adjustments on the daily.

4. Chiropractors Are Great For Athletes

Athletes absolutely love chiropractors! Take, for instance, the National Football League, where all 32 teams employ chiropractors to work on their players. It certainly doesn’t stop there. Chiropractors are extremely common in so many different kinds of sports — from soccer to swimming. 

People who play sports a lot will need to take extra care of their body. Big hits and quick, athletic movements can take a toll on the body and throw it out of alignment — that’s why chiropractors are a favorite of athletes who require relief for aches and pains.

5. Chiropractors Can Help You Stay Out Of The Hospital

Since chiropractors will help you stay healthier in general, it’s not surprising that this can equate to fewer visits to the hospital. But it’s more than that. Chiropractic care can also prevent you from needing surgery in the future.

Since chiropractic care is a drug-free method of pain relief, this also means that you are less likely to end up in care facilities for addiction and rehabilitation. With over 20,000 opioid overdoses each year in the US, turning to integrative health treatments instead of pain relief drugs might be a safer choice in many instances.

Whatever the case may be, chiropractic care can help you avoid the costs and stressors of being admitted to all sorts of hospitals for all sorts of reasons. On a similar note…

6. Chiropractors Are Cheaper Than Spine Specialists

Chiropractors are a fantastic choice for all sorts of back pain, including lower back pain. Back pain can sometimes be so overwhelming and relentless that it seems like there’s little option outside of seeing a spine specialist. However, the costs can be extremely high to see a spine specialist, especially when a chiropractor may very well be able to provide the help that you need. 

Be sure to consider your alternatives before committing to anything that will break the bank. Contact us with any of your questions and we can help you walk through what’s best for your back pain (or any other kind of struggles you might be having).
