IS CHIROPRACTIC A SAFE FORM OF TREATMENT?
Chiropractic is safe. Here at DocSide Chiropractic we use low force techniques of chiropractic. It is a very safe way to adjust and it allows us precise specificity as we deliver the treatment. It does not hurt. Your body may have tender points from the injury we are working to correct, but generally the adjustment gives intended relief instead of pain.
In general, no matter what chiropractic technique is used, it is considered very safe form of health care, with very low risk of serious complications when compared to drug therapies and surgery.
Some people fear that chiropractic can cause a stroke. Research has proven this is not a true assessment of the condition at hand. People may seek care for pain they have before an impending stroke. Meaning, the stroke was going to happen anyway. Chiropractors are trained to know the signs of a stroke and are diligent in proper screening during the history of the chief complaint process that is done with every patient. If we detect signs of an impending stroke, you will be helped in getting to the proper health care provider immediately.
