Re: Neck adjustments...
There is a 1/3000000 chance that you might have a complication following a neck adjustment.
Now, thats a very very small chance of something going wrong. The chance of complications and even death is around 1/300000 for simply taking ibuprofen. Think of the risk of other medications and surgery.
Chiropractic has proved itself to be very safe and very effective for the treatment of many health conditions. Have no fear and do not listen to what some medical doctors are saying with regard to the subject. The fact is the risk is low. Most complications of neck adjustments or rather "manipulations" fall in the hands of other professions such as physical therapists. They lack the training to perform these treatments. Typically when a complication arises its labeled as "chiropractic adjustment" when chiropractic had nothing to do with it. It was performed by someone else who lacks the training and who performed a "manipulation".
Think about the number of chiropractic adjustments to the neck that has gone on over the past 100 years. We're talking millions. Now how often have turned on the local news or CNN and heard that a chiropractor injured someone? Probably never. Listen, like with anything there are risks but have no fear as chiropractic has proven to be very safe.
