Chiropractic care has been misunderstood and mischaracterized in some corners almost since its inception. The fact that it is a relatively young practice in the formal sense (slightly more than 100 years have passed since its establishment) might account for some people’s wariness. But they — and you — can rest assured that chiropractic is a sound component of healthcare that provides potent, verifiable benefits.

The same might be true for the topic of spine-related pain in general, the focal point of chiropractic treatment. Michigan-based chiropractor Dr. Christopher Miller (no relation to Dr. Ann Miller) helps to separate truth from fallacy in the following post:

What Are the Top 5 Educational Myths About Chiropractic Care?
Since its inception, chiropractic has been the subject of many myths. Even now, with a growing body of research proving its effectiveness, the profession is often misunderstood by the general public.
