Wellness: Fact vs. Fiction

Cracking Down on Chiropractic Pseudoscience

March 2, 2022

Join Dr. Danielle Belardo and her highly requested expert of the week, board-certified chiropractor Aaron Kubal, for a myth-busting episode on musculoskeletal health. After enrolling in school, Aaron realized the chiropractic profession was filled with pseudoscience and began using his social media platform to debunk misinformation about the field. Aaron and Danielle discuss the simple red flags to watch out for when choosing a practitioner, the future of the profession, the power of exercise for musculoskeletal health, and much more. With the abundance of cracks in the system (pun intended), maybe it’s time to rethink your next visit to the chiropractor.    Aaron has been an advocate for evidence-based practice long before completing his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree at Northwestern Health Sciences University with special interests in rehabilitation and chronic pain. Utilizing education & exercise, Aaron runs his own telehealth clinic, Twin Cities Rehab & Performance, where he delivers patient-centered care virtually that is tailored to each individual he works with, all under the umbrella of evidence-based practice.     Myths and misconceptions discussed include:    The truth about back cracking and why it feels so good  Misleading x-rays and long-term care plans  Spine realignment, SI joints, and spinal manipulation in newborns  Whether chiropractors can treat other medical issues       Thank you so much for taking the time to contribute to a generation that values fact over fiction! Be sure to rate, review, and follow on your favorite podcast app and let us know which not-so-wellness trend you’d like to hear debunked.
