Don't want to put up with the pain any longer?
The debate about how safe Chiropractic is has been around for several years. Some people shy away from Chiropractic care over safety concerns. Here is some important information we would like you to know about Chiropractic care so you can overcome your fears and seek an assessment.
Chiropractic care, when done by qualified practitioners is considered a relatively safe therapy for musculoskeletal conditions. As Chiropractors don’t use expensive drugs or do surgeries in their practice, but just use their hands, Chiropractic practice is relatively safe. Also, in some cases their services are far more affordable than alternatives.
All medical practitioners are by law required to get insurance coverage. Chiropractors are one of the groups that get the lowest premiums because their practice involves very low risk. Chiropractors have a 5-year university qualification and are regulated by a government registration body. They are obliged to comply with ongoing continuing education requirements every year, and hold a current first aid certificate.
While medical practitioners strive to provide the safest care possible, there is no guarantee it will be 100 percent safe, and this applies to Chiropractic practice as well. Fortunately, in most cases, Chiropractic practice has mild to moderate risks. A few first-time patients may complain of pains and aches following their treatment, but the pain will usually go away on its own by using a cold compress, or with ordinary painkillers.
Some people claim that neck adjustments, which are core to Chiropractic practice, may cause stroke or vertebral artery dissection. One study showed that such injuries might happen in people with a history of arterial disease. Other studies have also shown that vertebral artery dissection is mostly caused by activities that involve turning the head. People suffering from this condition may mistakenly conclude that Chiropractic treatment is the cause of their injury. The sitting Gonstead adjustments used at New Farm Chiropractic for the neck avoid twisting in order to maximize the patient’s safety.
