Is Chiropractic Safe?

Considering that Stroke is one of the leading causes of death, many people are dying of strokes that have never been to a Chiropractor. Might there be a coincidence of seeing a Chiropractor when someone was having a stroke? There is risk in driving, flying, and even taking an aspirin.

All surgical procedures… even minor surgery has risk. All of these have higher risk of injury and death than seeing a Chiropractor. What is riskier- Seeing a Medical Doctor or Doctor of Chiropractic? Malpractice insurance rates will be a good indicator of what is more dangerous. The truth is that malpractice rates for a Medical Doctor will usually be at least 10 times higher than the same coverage for a Chiropractor. If Chiropractors were really causing lots of strokes, their malpractice rates would obviously be much higher.

The medical community might be able to fool the public but not the insurance companies. Bottom line: Chiropractic is very safe especially when compared to the medical profession. So what are you waiting for? Relief of your problems might be just be click away.
