Are Chiropractic adjustments safe?

In general, chiropractic treatments carry a very low risk of complication. Approximately 25% of patients will experience short-term [24 hours] of local soreness following the initial adjustment. The risk of serious, irreversible complication is rare. Estimates for neck adjustments are between 1 in 400,000 to 1 in 5.85 million. With regards to the low back, estimates for serious complication is "1 in many million." It is important that you discuss any specific concerns with your treating chiropractor prior to receiving treatment.
