In the words of a New Zealand government study, Chiropractic is remarkably safe.
Critics, skeptics and those who misunderstand chiropractic often use safety as a way to discourage people from considering chiropractic. Usually it concerns adjustments to the neck. These concerns are baseless.
There just arent a lot of recorded instances of chiropractors producing adverse reactions from neck adjustments. When there is a rare newsworthy event, its often been at the hands of other practitioners who have taken a weekend course or lack the training and years of education that today’s chiropractors receive.
Virtually everything has risks associated with it. For example. Statistically, taking an over-the-counter pain reliever is considerably more dangerous than chiropractic care. As is driving your car, taking a shower (slip and fall) or eating at a new restuarant (food poisoning). Relax, knowing these are much riskier than receiving safe and natural chiropractic care!
