The Hot Debate: Is Chiropractic Care Safe?

By Genevieve Cunningham

One of the hottest debates in the news lately revolves around chiropractic care and its safety. People are beginning to wonder: Is it really safe? Is it really worth it? While this is a personal decision that only you and your doctor can make, there are important things to keep in mind before finally settling on one side or the other. Take a look at this important information regarding safety, and make an informed decision about your personal well-being.

What’s the Deal With Neck Manipulations?

When people hear about chiropractic care being unsafe, it’s almost always surrounding an issue with neck manipulation. But what exactly is neck manipulation? This involves the chiropractor using their hands to manipulate the vertebrae of the spine. These vertebrae sometime become misaligned, which can cause pain and discomfort in the neck, back, or other places in the body. The chiropractor will put these vertebrae back into their proper location within the body, which can alleviate that pain and leave you feeling better than ever.

How Safe is Getting Care?

Even if you understand what the chiropractor does, the question still remains: Is it safe? The truth is that chiropractic care is incredibly safe. Is there a risk? Of course there is … just like any other sort of health care procedure. But according to the American Chiropractic Association, that risk is only about 1 in over 5 million. Keep in mind that generally only bad events or experiences make the news, but millions of others enjoy care every day with zero negative effects and incredible benefits to the body. If you’re nervous, ask your chiropractor for comfort and advice, but rest assured that safety is their overriding concern, and it shows when you look at the low risk factor and high satisfaction of patients.

Why Should I Even Bother?

Even though the risk is low, many people are left wondering why they should even bother getting care. The truth is that the benefits are often well worth the trip to the clinic. Besides the pain relief mentioned above, many people experience a boost in energy, an improvement in the immune system, fewer headaches, a greater sense of well-being, and many other benefits. If you want a way to boost your health and feel just a little better every day, chiropractic care may be one of your best options.
