You might be surprised how many people suffer needlessly with neck pain or back pain because of their concerns when it comes to chiropractic care in Orinda CA. The fact is that advanced chiropractic techniques are safe, painless, efficient, and hugely beneficial for a wide range of conditions. Here are some of the truths about some of the more common chiropractic myths:


  • “Chiropractic treatment is only for neck pain or back pain.” Chiropractic care can treat any condition that affects the function of the musculoskeletal and central nervous systems – and that includes a variety of ailments. The nerves, in particular, tell your body what to do and how to do it, and many chronic illnesses stem from improper nerve function. Spinal misalignments and postural imbalances also contribute to muscular aches and pains, so when we adjust your spine you can heal more quickly from those problems as well.
  • “Chiropractic treatment continues indefinitely.” Many people confuse continuous treatment sessions with periodic wellness checkups. While several sessions are often necessary to effectively complete correction of a nagging problem, many patients start to see results almost immediately. The ongoing wellness checks are just to keep your alignment in good shape, which we hope will prevent the need for future such treatments.
  • “Chiropractors ‘crack your back.'” Some people think they will experience pain or come to physical harm through chiropractic care. When in fact, the reverse is true: chiropractic adjustment tends to alleviate pain, it does not cause it. As for the “cracking” sound when we adjust your neck or back, it is nothing more than the release of gas from the joints.
