Yes! In fact, it is widely known as one of the safest drug free and non-invasive therapies available! Although Chiropractic Care has a wonderfully excellent safety record, it is true that no health treatment is completely free of adverse side effects. Every body is completely different and reacts differently to treatments. However, because Chiropractic Care is non-invasive, the risks associated are very minimal. Most clients will face immediate relief following a chiropractic treatment such as an adjustment. However, some patients have reported mild stiffness and soreness, comparable to pain felt after a good workout. Research shows that this kind of discomfort fades within 24 hours.
The best thing you can do to ensure your safety is to be very specific about your symptoms when consulting with your Chiropractor. This will help your Chiropractor choose the best and most effective treatment for you, or even refer you to another health care provider!
