When discussing the risks of any health care, it is important to look at that risk in comparison to other treatments available for the same condition. Dr. Rashad Trabulsi and his team at Manhattan Wellness Group have an excellent safety record and over a decade of experience. The findings below stem from their experience as well as data from recent studies by both the American Chiropractic Association and the New York Chiropractic Council.
What are the Risks Associate with Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest non-invasive, drug-free therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Compared to other forms of treatment such as general practitioner care, surgical care, or over the counter medicine, the risks associated with chiropractic care are very small. These minimal risks typically associated with treatment include mild soreness, stiffness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current research shows the any minor discomfort or soreness that follows spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours.
The image below shows how other forms of care can result in more serious side effects, and in severe cases, even death.
How Effective is Chiropractic Care vs. Other Types of Care?
The findings below confirm that chiropractic and physical hands on care is the industry leading type of care for neck and back pain.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy offers a significant advantage for decreasing pain and improving physical functioning when compared with only standard care, for men and women between 18 and 35 years of age with acute low back pain.
- In a controlled trial by medical professionals, 183 patients with neck pain were given chiropractic care, or general practitioner care for 52 weeks. The clinical outcomes measures showed that chiropractic therapy resulted in faster recovery than general practitioner care.
- Chiropractic patients were found to be more satisfied with their back care providers after four weeks of treatment than were medical patients
- Chiropractic is the largest, most regulated, and best recognized of the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) professions.
