The Pot Calling the Kettle Black
Many patients entering a chiropractic office report a history of allergies and have been receiving allergy shots for years. One example of this is a patient who had received an allergy shot once a week for 15 years. That is 780 office visits just for shots, not to mention office visits that might have occurred for other health problems.
We see several referrals each week from medical doctors. Yet, a few medical doctors and other critics are still quick to knock chiropractic saying, “Once you start you have to keep going and going”. Doctors of chiropractic often do recommend monthly maintenance visit for patients with certain spinal problems. However, one adjustment per month for 15 years would only be 180 office visits. This is 600 less than the above patient encountered for allergy shots.
If you have been considering chiropractic care and were warned against it because of multiple visits, don’t be the victim of a double standard. Not every chiropractic patient has to return each month and certainly not 780 times.
