Myths and Facts about Chiropractic

There are many myths out there about chiropractic. Let's set the record straight.

Click the tabs below to read more.

Myth #1: Chiropractors are not Real Doctors

The FACTS:

Chiropractors have the same level of education as medical doctors, and are licensed as primary health care doctors. The difference between chiropractors and medical doctors has to do with how they treat the human body. Where medical doctors rely on external chemical compounds to treat ailments, chiropractors focus on the structurally correcting the internal conditions, which causes the ailments in the first place. Because of this, chiropractic is highly effective in treating a wide range of conditions without resorting to taking drugs.

Myth #2: Chiropractic Adjustments are Dangerous

The FACTS:

This is just wrong, as a matter of fact; you are hundreds of times more likely to suffer an adverse reaction to taking an aspirin than you are from having a chiropractic adjustment. Most people don’t realize that there are more than 100,000 adverse reactions each year from taking a simple aspirin, while there are fewer than 100 adverse reactions to chiropractic adjustments. When you consider that there are over 3 million people being adjusted in one year, the risk from being adjusted is vanishing small.

Myth #3: Once you Start Chiropractic You Must Continue Forever

The FACTS:

While this is not strictly true, it is importantly to remember that ALL doctors continue to treat you for the rest of you life, at least ideally. For example, how often do you go to your dentist? Is it not true that your dentist will keep scheduling visits even when you have no tooth pain? We all learned at an early age the value of routine maintenance for our teeth, but for most of us we never learned the importance of the same type of routine maintenance for the rest of the body.

Myth #4: Medical Doctors don’t like Chiropractors

The FACTS:

For the most part there is little animosity towards chiropractors from the medical community. Maybe a few medical doctors don’t like chiropractors for one reason or another. As a matter fact more and more medical doctors and nurses are being treated by chiropractor every year. Chiropractors are now on staff at many major hospitals, the military, working at insurance companies and work side by side with medical doctors in private clinics.

Myth #5: People can Adjust Themselves by “Cracking” Their Neck or Back

The FACTS:

It would be almost impossible to adjust oneself in a way to free any fixations or correct any subluxations. Some people can get their neck or back to “pop”, but this usually only affects the segments that are not the true culprit and over time can lead to other problems. Just as you wouldn’t perform surgery on yourself, its best to leave the adjustments of your back and neck to the professional chiropractor. Even professionals cannot adjust themselves.

Myth #6: Spinal Adjustments Hurt

The FACTS:

Many patients feel instant relief immediately after their treatments, for obvious reasons patients suffering from severe neck or back pain may experience some discomfort, for most patients this in not the case, in fact most patients look forward to their chiropractic treatments.

Testimonials From Real Patients

Christina Colombo786

you're looking for a chiropractor in the area, this is the place to go! The office is clean and professional, the staff are friendly, and Dr. Ozner truly works wonders. I came in with headaches and neck pain, and after a few visits they're gone. I now come in regularly for my adjustments and massage. Two thumbs up!

Dr. Fredrick Williams

As, fellow chiropractor in the Tampa Bay area. Anytime someone is looking for a place with a doctor that can get the job, and truly cares about his patients, Dr. Ozner is where I refer them to for the entire south Florida area.

I have been going to chiropractors for years and after seeing Dr. Ozner, I am FINALLY pain-free. Highly recommend seeing Dr. Ozner for any acute or chronic neck/back pain. Very knowledgable, caring, and down to earth Doctor. A++

Carly L

had an amazing experience here. I was going through severe lower back pain, and had tried just about everything. When I heard about what Dr. Ozner was doing in his office with deep tissue laser therapy, I figured I would give it a try, and I'm very glad I did. I can now say that I've been out of pain for the last few months and I am doing GREAT! Highly recommended!!

Joe Gag

As someone that has suffered from chronic back pain and headaches for many years, probably because of years of construction work and a couple motorcycle crashes, going to the Dr. Jonathon Ozner was the best thing I could of done. He not only helped me, but took X-rays and actually explained the problem and how we were going to correct it. I highly recommend Dr. Ozner!

Kamesha

46 minutes and 10 seconds later I can post this review. Dr Ozner and his wonderful assistants are great. They always make me feel welcomed and are so accommodating to my needs. I get the best adjustments from Dr O who takes the time to explain things to me and gives great workout advice I can use later. I come here 3 times a week (since Oct. '15) and always leave feeling better. The best that I have been to and you should give them a try. A family member referred me and it has been a great experience thus far.

Beth Field

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Mike and Dr. "Oz" for many years now, probably close to ten or more years. So happy with this office! I used to have migraines often and since I get my neck and back adjusted regularly, I no longer suffer from that pain. I have been to other chiropractors in the past, with mixed results, some were good and some were not good experiences. But Broward Health & Rehab has been consistently good over the many years that I've been going there. Their staff cares about their patients and work with my schedule. I go once a week and have never had an issue or a problem. These guys are the best! And I work in the medical field so I know good staff and good service when I see it. They accept most insurance plans and also have very workable financial monthly plans if you don't have insurance or if your insurance doesn't cover their services. Try them and see for yourself!

Robert Klevens

I have been seeing Dr. Ozner for a couple of years. He takes his time and thoroughly explains everything. I highly recommend visiting Dr. Ozner if you are in pain or just want to maintain your posture. Always a short wait time thanks to the friendly staff.
