Chiropractic Safety – Chiropractor in Centurion

The safety of chiropractic care is most of the time a controversial issue. However, in my opinion, it is not controversial at all. Is Chiropractic care truly safe?

Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of health care. The American Chiropractic Association stated:

“The rare type of stroke – the vertebral artery dissection – has been associated with many commonplace activities such as talking on the phone, swimming, stargazing, overhead work, hair shampooing and even sleeping. Based on various studies, many experts believe that it is impossible to cause a tear in the vertebral artery unless the artery has a significant pre-existing weakness. The odds of suffering a serious complication from chiropractic neck treatment are about one in 2 million – the same as dying in a commercial airline crash. Even the most conservative conventional medical treatment for neck and back pain, prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, are hundreds of times more likely to cause a serious reaction.”

According to a book that Dr N Vizniak wrote in 2011 he stated the following. Statistically one is about 300% more likely to be struck by lightning and dying than having a serious neural complication due to cervical adjustment
 
It is my job as a Chiropractor to make sure that my patient is healthy. That is why I swore an oath to make sure my patients are safe all the time.
