Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe

Yes, you may feel a little sore for a day or two after your chiropractic adjustment. This is mainly due to the body's process of re-adjusting itself after its period of being subluxated. As to there being any particular concerns over visits to the chiropractor and the care you receive at their hands, it has been shown that there is no more risk having gone to see your friendly chiropractor for an adjustment than visiting your local GP for a medical consultation.

By comparison with other medical disciplines, where chiropractic care is concerned cases of serious injury are practically nonexistent.

Global risk-aware insurance companies recognise the safety of today's chiropractic care; the premiums for malpractice insurance paid by chiropractors are a mere fraction of what medical practitioners must pay - chiropractic care is safe.
