When many patients come to visit us for the first time, they often have questions about the myths they’ve heard about chiropractor in Massachusetts. Barley Wellness knows how scary it can be to try something new, and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible! We want to debunk some of the most common myths we here about this practice. 

Adjustment hurts. Because we’re adjusting improper alignments, it becomes an experience many look forward to because it feels great. In our experience, our patients experience relief when they are adjusted with our professionals. 

It is dangerous. A chiropractor in MA has to attain a degree with over 2,800 hours of experience, at least 7 years of schooling, and pass the four-part National Board Examinations. Chiropractic care is proven to be safer than most medications used to manage pain. 

You should only see a chiropractor as an adult. Children or babies who have suffered from trauma during birth, reflux, or other medical conditions often rely on chiropractors to help alleviate some of these problems. 

It only treats back pain. There’s more to this practice than just backs. Chiropractors can help adjust neck, knees, hands, ankles, and feet. They also work with injured patients, pregnant women, and other related areas. 

Treatment doesn’t work. Chiropractic care is successful for helping with a number of health problems, including nerve system function. Often used for a form of therapy to accidents or other traumas, chiropractic visits are a part of a healthy lifestyle.
