#5 Chiropractic is no different than PT
PT is short for Physiotherapy and it focuses on the muscolosketetal system specifically. Most physiotherapists will focus on strengthening, relaxing, and stretching the muscle. When we combine Chiropractic ( specific approach toward function of body joints and spine) and Physiotherapy, the person will have more comprehensive care of their condition. Research has stated that when chiropractic is used in conjunction with physiotherapy, together they produce faster and longer lasting results when it comes to chronic pain management.
#6 Chiropractic is not evidence based practice, it is a voodoo science.
Maybe you had a bad experience in some chiropractic clinic or practice. Chiropractic has solid evidence based research to back up the benefit. Chiropractic is recognized and regulated with WHO (World Health Organization) as well as many other associations. It is part of public health system in many countries such as America, Canada, Austrlia, UK, NZ, etc. Here is the link of top 10 evidence base research paper that is by third party to state the benefit and safety of chiropractic. Check it out.
#7. Chiropractic is dangerous for pregnant moms.
Chiropractic is very safe throughout pregnancy. Chiropractic is very effective towards low back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Many expecting moms in Singapore are also women working full time. If you are not pregnant, you can take pain killers or medication to manage those aches and pains. However, it is not recommended to take strong medication during pregnancy because of the potential harm for the baby. What will be the alternative way to ensure you have a comfortable and pleasant pregnancy? Chiropractic can be your solution! The chirorpactors will not prescribe any drug or surgery. Here is the link from American pregnancy organization to state the benefit and safety of chiropractic care for pregnant moms. Many expecting moms are already benefiting from utilizing chiropractic care during their pregnancy.
#8. Don’t take your kids to Chiropractor. It is waste of time and money
In fact, many parents are taking their healthy children to chiropractor. Parents in Singapore always want a head start for their children in academics, why not head start them in health as well. Less sick days from school means more academic advancement throughout the year.
The link below is from the best selling book in Austrlia called “ Well Adjusted Baby”, it has 10 reasons parents from all over the world are taking their healthy children to chiropractors.
#9 I am an amature/professional sport athlete. Chiropractic can’t help me with my sports performance.
Pretend you are a F-1 professional driver. You have many years of experience and practice to perfect your techinque to run a perfect record on track. On your race day, your F1 race car only has 3 wheels and everyone is expecting you to reproduce that perfect record you have practiced. What do you think what will happen?
Sports injuries are very common for amature and professional athletic. Can you ignore it? Can you race with 3 wheels car? Chiropractic is effective when it comes to sports injury recovery. Many well known athletes are constantly under Chiropractic care even they are not competiting.
The link below states the reason and benefit of choosing chiropractic for your sport injury solution
#10 Chiropractic is expansive and I can’t afford it.
If money is a concern, then there are options available to help. In Singapore, many private health insurance companies are offering more coverage and options for chiropractic treatment. They are affordable and comprehensive. Not many people know this but as patients, you can find out if your insurance company provides options to cover the the health care cost. Send us an email we will help you to find the solutions.
My final words:
The defination of lie is an intentionally false statement. Nothing can be further from truth, if you intend to find the truth yourself. You can come to your own conclusions based on solid observation and research. If you had bad experience in Chiropractic, so what, we have all had bad experiences in many places all the time. If a hospital gives you bad experience, are you going to avoid all hospitals even under critical situations? Don’t let concern and unanswered questions stop you from exploring something could be a possibility for you. Create that possibility for yourself today
