Safety of Chiropractic Adjustments
“Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current research shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours.”
-American Chiropractic Association
“Chiropractic is among the most conservative treatments for many musculoskeletal conditions. It’s been shown to have among the lowest rates of adverse effects and risks compared to other treatments.”
