Neck Manipulation Extremely Safe

wellness-285590_1920.jpgIf you’ve ever heard certain sources claiming that chiropractic spinal manipulation/adjustment of the neck region can be unsafe or downright dangerous, a new study published in the internationally respected journal Spine should help put you at ease. U.K. researchers set out to evaluate the true risk of chiropractic manipulation of the cervical spine (neck region). After reviewing data from over 50,000 cervical manipulations, researchers found no reports of serious adverse events. Researchers concluded, “‚Ķ the risk of a serious adverse event, immediately or up to 7 days after treatment, was low to very low”. Of course, doctors of chiropractic have known for over 100 years that chiropractic manipulation of the spine and joints of the body is not only highly effective, but also extremely safe for their patients.
