A common response to why people have never tried chiropractic care is because they are under the false assumption that chiropractic is addicting. Chiropractic is not any more addicting then healthy habits such as eating well, exercising, and flossing your teeth. In general people feel very good after getting their back adjusted by a chiropractor and would like to maintain that level of optimum health so they return periodically to have their back realigned, but it is not because they are addicted to chiropractic.
People return to chiropractors for a number of different reasons. Many people are put on a specific treatment plan where repeated visits are necessary to fix a certain problem. Some people love the way they feel following a chiropractic adjustment and want to maintain optimal health and visit chiropractors regularly. And some people utilize chiropractic when injuries occur and return to the chiropractor’s office as a natural form of pain relief.
I personally get my back adjusted on a regular basis not because I am in pain or that I am addicted, but because it makes me feel great and I know that regular chiropractic care is the key to maintaining health and aging gracefully.
