Recently the news has been buzzing on whether or not Chiropractic care is safe. Well, we’ve got great news for you!
According to our neighbors, the National Institute of Health , chiropractic care is one of the safest and effective non-invasive treatments that’s available. The NIH cites that “reports of serious complications such a stroke, cauda equina syndrome (a condition involving pinched nerves in the lower part of the spinal canal), and worsening of the herniated discs” are rare.
NIH also utilizes a 2007 study done in the United Kingdom with 19,722 chiropractic patients that concluded that any serious adverse event was “low to very low.” Another study done in 2009 in Ontario, Canada analyzed 818 cases over 9 years that concluded it is no more dangerous to visit the chiropractor than it is to visit your primary care doctor.
The NIH also regards Chiropractic care a concrete and safe alternative that treats back pain, headaches and migraines, neck pain, upper and lower extremity joint conditions, and whiplash associated disorders.
