Chiropractic Care is Safe and Effective

The safety of Chiropractic care has been well documented in professional journals of all kinds. Serious side-effects of Chiropractic manipulative therapy occur with approximately one out of every one million adjustments. Compare this to the serious side-effects of medicines and surgical errors to put safety in perspective. Research reveals that some 100,000 people die each year from effects of prescription drugs that were prescribed by their doctors. This isn’t meant to be “M.D. bashing,” it’s just the simple truth about the safety of prescription medications, as reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association (April 1998). The article continues to say, “Discovering new dangers of drugs after marketing is common. Overall, 51% of approved drugs have serious adverse effects not detected prior to approval. Merely discovering adverse affects is not by itself sufficient to protect the public. Each year prescription drugs injure 1.5 million people so severely they require hospitalization and 100,000 die making prescription drugs the 4th leading cause of death in the United States.” So the question was about the safety of Chiropractic care?
