Top 4 myths about chiropractors and chiropractic

People these days tend to have very conflicting views about chiropractors. In most cases, the different things that people have to say in this regard are merely hearsay with no merit as such. Given below are the top 5 myths associated with chiropractors along with a reality check:

Myth #1: Chiropractic treatment does not work; it doesn’t have any scientific evidence to it

Believe it or not, there is a wide range of evidence that clearly suggests the usefulness of visiting a chiropractor in Dubai. Amongst the many different research studies that have been conducted in this regard, the latest ones show how efficient it can prove to be in terms of treating neck pain, lower back pain and even conditions like acute dizziness. So if you come across a person telling you that visiting a chiropractor is going to be useless, make sure that you correct their notions with a reality check.

Myth #2: You don’t need to study much to become a chiropractor

This is nowhere close to the truth. If you want to run a chiropractic clinic in Dubai, it is necessary for you to acquire extensive education at first. As a matter of fact, you need to acquire a Master’s degree of at least four years. After that, it is vital that you get registered with the right authorities. Next, you must also get a valid license through the concerned authorities.  On an average, chiropractors are known to do about 4822 hours in their degree, while medics are required to do about 4667 hours.

Myth 3: The treatments provided by chiropractors is very dangerous

If anything, research studies have shown that chiropractic care delivers the safest medical treatments. A majority of people are particularly concerned that neck adjustments have the potential to cause a stroke. Research studies have however showed that your chances of having a stroke by seeing a chiropractor are as high as your chances of facing a stroke by seeing your GP – next to none.

Myth 4: Chiropractors are not ‘real’ doctors

You need to bear in mind the fact that chiropractors are as real as the GP that you visit regularly for your aches and pains. They go through similar, if not more, training hours and are then awarded a title of ‘Doctor of Chiropractic’. Yes, they are not medical doctors, but that does not change the fact that they are doctors of chiropractic.
