Is Chiropractic safe?
 
Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. While there are risks involved in any intervention, in the words of the New Zealand government's inquiry, chiropractic care is "remarkably safe". It is the result of a conservative approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or addictive drugs. A thorough case history and examination help reveal areas of the spine that may be causing nervous system malfunction. This information will be used to determine the best course of care for each patient. Chiropractors may also use x-ray examination in order to identify and rule out further risk factors.
