Testimonials
Sports Enhancement I first came to Dr. Fynaardt in the summer. I came to see the doctor because I was having difficulty when I was trying to play soccer and baseball with my friends. My mom always thought that my feet kind of turned in when I ran since I was very young. This was my first visit to a chiropractor and I am very happy with my results. I am now able to run faster and play a mean game of soccer. I am very glad my grandmother told me I should come and see Dr. Fynaardt!

Colic / Digestive Problems Twins We were born on June 11. When we came home from the hospital, our mommy and daddy noticed that we did not have bowel movements regularly and sometimes we spit-up during of after our feedings. This made our tummies hurt and sometimes we did not sleep very well. Then we came to Dr. Fynaardt and things started to change for the better. Dr. Fynaardt was so kind and gentle. After a few treatment sessions, we started to keep our food down better and our mommy and daddy had to change our diapers more frequently if you know what we mean. Our tummies felt so much better and sleeping was much more relaxing. We are much more content and happy now and when we are happy so are our mommy and daddy. Thank you Dr. Fynaardt!

Myths and Facts PDF Print E-mail
Myth # 1 Chiropractors are not Real Doctors

Fact.  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

Fact.  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


Fact!  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

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

Fact.  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 #5 Spinal Adjustments Hurt

Fact.  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
