Chiropractic Safety

This is most of the time a controversial issue, but in my opinion it is not controversial. 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 common place activities such as talking on the phone, swimming, star-gazing, overhead work, hair shampooing and even sleeping. Based upon 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, is 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 stats: "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 and I swore an oath to make sure my patients are safe all the time.
