9 Reasons NOT to Visit a Chiropractor

If you’re looking for reasons not to visit a chiropractor, here are nine reasons mixed in with a bit of sarcasm.

1.) You don’t have a spine.  If you’re born without a spine, there’s really no need to worry about spinal degeneration, is there?

2.) If you can’t see it, it must be fine.  Skin, hair, teeth, eyes… These front-facing body parts are important because other people can see them. If a healthy spine was really that important, it wouldn’t be in the back.

3.) You love taking medication. Taking risks makes life more enjoyable! Dizziness, headaches, dry mouth, constipation, seizures, cancer, death… What’s not to like about side effects?  And let’s be honest the drugs are only approved one at a time so taking more than one puts a person into guinea pig territory.

4.) Your insurance doesn’t pay for it. Money is for important stuff like cable TV, cigarettes, and lottery tickets. If your insurance plan doesn’t cover it, maybe chiropractic care just isn’t necessary?

5.) Chiropractors don’t prescribe drugs. Why would you want to go to a doctor who doesn’t think you need another prescription? (See #3.)  Many chiropractors offer nutritional response testing because they believe in helping the body heal through proper nutrition.

6.) Chiropractors think lifestyle “stress” can make you sick.  So often people hear all about bad genes because it’s as if everybody knows you only get sick because certain diseases just run in the family.  As if the body came without the ability or knowledge to heal itself.

7.) Chiropractors expect you to do stuff at home.  They want you to make time for rest, exercise, and stretching.  On top of that, they want to observe a person’s diet. Evidently they don’t understand how busy life is…

8.) I don’t believe in Chiropractors. Some people will ignore the evidence and health that chiropractic care provides because of one bad story, yet they ignore the thousands dying each year on prescription drugs or from chemotherapy treatments.

9.) Besides, you’re impervious to mistakes. You eat healthy, and there’s nothing wrong with the way you’re living. Even if your “habits” are making you gain weight and age prematurely, that’s none of the doctor’s business! The job of a doctor is to get you out of pain with a pill solution so you can get back to doing the things that brought you there in the first place.
