Why is Alan Harper not a “Masseuse with a Degree” : Find Best Chiropractor in New York

An infamous stereotype that hovers over the chiropractic profession is that chiropractors, basically, are ‘masseuse with a degree’. Although it is fun to tease your chiropractor friend, but it does undermine the importance of chiropractic practices substantially. Such jokes get more impetus when they’re used in leading TV shows. Remember the pathetic (yet funny) portrayal of Alan Harper as a chiropractor in ‘Two and a half men’?

Such stereotypes are far from reality as they bypass the extensive medical training that chiropractors undergo. It is true that they do not hold medical degrees, so they aren’t medical doctors, but they do have extensive training with both classes and hands-on experience in chiropractic care.

There are currently over 77,000 licensed chiropractors in the US and according to a report, chiropractic outperformed all other back pain treatments including prescriptions, deep-tissue massage and even yoga. This has sowed a trust-seed among people and chiropractors in New York and other major cities are taking it forward by offering better care.

Chiropractors treat a number of issues involving :

  • muscles
  • tendons
  • ligaments
  • bones
  • cartilage
  • nervous system

When you have a stiff neck or an aching back, chiropractic care New York is a prudent choice to alleviate the pain without any possible side effects.
