Is Chiropractic Safe? – Yes!
Years of training and the experience of giving thousands of adjustments make chiropractic safe. How do you define safe? Even with clear warnings in the media and sun screening products, 6,000 people will die this year from skin cancer. Chiropractic care is much safer than getting a so-called “healthy” tan.
Many people take aspirin, ibuprofen, muscle relaxers, and other pain relief drugs. Besides covering up the symptoms and ignoring the underlying causes, 4,000 people will die this year from reactions to medically-prescribed drugs. Chiropractic care is much safer than drug therapy.
While commercial airplane mishaps get a lot of publicity, estimates suggest that fewer than 300 people will die this year from flying on commercial aircraft. Chiropractic is much safer than flying.
Chiropractic care is safer than many of the everyday things taken granted for as “safe”. Every year, about 100 people get struck by lightning. Chiropractic is safer than being caught in a thunderstorm. You are more likely to get hit by lightning than to have a negative reaction to a chiropractic adjustment.
In fact, of the millions of patients who will benefit from chiropractic care this year, only a handful will have a newsworthy experience.
Is chiropractic care safe? Yes! Especially when compared with other forms of treatment.
