Myths and Facts

Top 5 Myths about Chiropractic Treatment: Busted!

Myth # 1: Chiropractors are not really doctors

This couldn’t be far from the truth. Chiropractors are licensed primary health care physicians, having the same level of education in healthcare as medical doctors. The only difference lies in the way they treat health problems. While medical science believes in external medication to treat the ailments, chiropractic believes in correcting the internal body imbalance causing the ailment. This makes chiropractic a much more natural way of treating health issues in comparison.

Myth #2: It can be painful and dangerous to do Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments may only be as dangerous as taking an aspirin might be. Every year hundreds of thousands of people have a reaction to medical drugs. This does not reduce the effectiveness of the drugs themselves. Similarly, chiropractic adjustments may sometimes not suit certain people, but this doesn’t make them dangerous. In fact millions of people benefit from chiropractic treatment every year and this number is rising exponentially. There is literally no pain reported upon making these adjustments. The only reported feeling is that of relief and comfort!

Myth #3: Chiropractic treatments need to be carried out for life

While ideally most medical treatments should go on for life, no one can bind you to something against your will. It is just like visiting your dentist or your cardiologist every now and then. When you visit them without pain or an emergency, it is more for maintenance and prevention than anything else. Chiropractic is no different. All we need to understand is the importance of maintaining the rest of the body mechanics like we do for our teeth and heart.

Myth #4: Medical Doctors and Chiropractors don’t see eye to eye

As a matter of fact, there is little animosity between the two professions but that is not much different than professionals working in the same discipline. The truth is that there are now chiropractors operating as staff members of a large number of major hospitals, they are offering services in the military, at insurance companies as well as working side by side with medical doctors in private practices.  

Myth #5: Chiropractic adjustments are simple ‘pops’ and can be self-adjusted

It is simply not possible to adjust yourself to get rid of a back or neck fixation. You may sometimes be able to ‘pop’ your neck or back but that will seldom rid you of the pain and discomfort unless done by a seasoned chiropractor. And it will certainly not correct the internal problem that chiropractic treatment targets.

Dr. Nick is great!!! I always thought Chiropractors were quacks, I was GREATLY mistaken!! I have had some neck issues and back issues over the years and my regular doctor has only prescribed me muscle relaxors, which only masked the pain. I don't like taking them, because I don't like taking drugs and the sluggish effects they bring you. I have taken these muscles relaxors and still have the same problems, nothing had been resolved! I am a very active person and I don't choose to be taking all this medication and having the horrible side effects and left with the same problem. Going to Dr. Nick has been amazing! He has really helped me and helped with the pain and has effectively solved my issues and has brought back the moblity to my neck and back! I am back to all the activities I have not been able to do prior! He is very easy to talk to and is a great listener and he has given me great exercises to do along with the treatment. My pain has ceased and I feel great!! I strongly reccommend Dr. Nick and will continue to refer him to everyone I can!----J.P.


Dr. Venuti and his staff are incredible.  They are friendly, professional, and really LISTEN to your concerns.  They really work as a team to treat your muscle/spine issues.  I used to be skeptical of chiropractic care, but not anymore!----S.V.
