A MATTER OF SAFETY
ABOUT THE PRACTICE
 


CHIROPRACTIC IS ONE OF THE SAFEST HEALTH CARE CHOICES.  POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS ARE AGGRAVATION OF SPINAL DEGENERATIVE CHANGES, RIB FRACTURES, OR COMPRESSION OF THE SPINAL CORD. 

STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THERE IS NO CAUSATIVE RELATION BETWEEN AN ADJUSTMENT AND INJURY TO THE ARTERIES OF THE NECK OR A STROKE.  IN FACT, THE STUDIES CONFIRM A PERSON HAS THE SAME CHANCE OF A STROKE FOLLOWING A VISIT TO A MEDICAL DOCTOR AS A CHIROPRACTOR.

THE ABOVE COMPLICATIONS ARE DESCRIBED AS RARE AND GENERALLY OF SHORT DURATION.  FOR COMPARISON, 1.7 PER 10,000,000 PEOPLE SUFFER AN ADVERSE EFFECT FROM CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT WHILE 13 PER 10,000,000 PEOPLE ARE STRUCK BY LIGHTNING.  SERIOUS OR FATAL COMPLICATIONS FOR THE TREATMENT OF NECK OR BACK PAIN USING OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS SUCH AS TYLENOL, IBUPROFIN OR ASPIRIN IS OVER 400 TIMES GREATER THAN A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT!
