Addicted to chiropractic care?

  Question

Will I become “dependent” on chiropractic care?

What happens is that a patient may experience benefits that, prior to receiving chiropractic care, they had never had before with other health care.

No one has ever become “addicted” or “dependent” on chiropractic care. What happens is that a patient may experience benefits that, prior to receiving chiropractic care, they had never had before with other health care. The patient then gains knowledge about how their body works, how it responds to stress and injury, and what needs to be done to correct the cause of any health concerns they may have. Patients learn not to wait until the problem becomes a crisis, thus, if they responded well to chiropractic then they would naturally come to choose this drug-free approach to many of their health concerns. Regular care can keep the nervous system operating optimally and address any new conditions that may arise in the natural course of our lives. Chiropractic care is for people of all ages, from infants to seniors. The only thing “addictive” is feeling great after an adjustment and the lasting health benefits that you’ll receive from safe, effective, and drug-free chiropractic!
