4 More Common Computerized Treatment Myths

Many studies have indicated that this myth is false and that traditional medicine tends to cost more than wellness care. Besides this fact, consider the purpose of computerized treatment. The overall goal of this wellness care is to promote optimal function in all parts of your body, so it stands to reason that long-term maintenance using computerized treatment could actually save you from hefty medical costs in the long run! Some patients have even been spared the costs of surgeries that may have been needed without computerized treatment.  

Cracking my back at home does the same thing.

If you hear that popping sound when you crack a joint, what you’re hearing is the release of gas trapped within the joint. Cracking your back at home may give you some relief because you are releasing some of the pressure in that joint, but this is by no means the same thing as a computerized treatment. When a practitioner “cracks your back,” he or she calls upon years of study and practice to strategically and expertly realign your spine. You simply won’t experience the same level of results at home.

Practitioners are not “real” doctors.

Within the United States (and many other countries), our practitioners are licensed as health care providers in their communities, so this misconception most likely stems from those who question the effectiveness of our wellness care. The truth is, our practitioners must undergo just as much (if not more) schooling as medical doctors must undergo, including a clinical residency with actual patients. The only real difference between a practitioner and a medical doctor is the method and techniques used to treat patients. Medical doctors use modern medicine while our practitioners use computerized techniques.

Computerized treatment is just a health fad or trend.

Computerized treatment may be new to you, but the first adjustment wasn’t performed 10, 20, or even 30 years ago. That doesn’t sound like a trend or a fad to us. In fact, the field of computerized treatment continues to grow around the world. As the single largest drug-free form of health care in the United States, computerized treatment probably isn’t going anywhere.
