Chiropractic Safety

Concerned About Chiropractic Safety?    Relax!

Chiropractic has long established itself as the safest form of health care in the world.

In comparing the strong safety record of chiropractic to that of traditional drug-based care, properly prescribed drugs unnecessarily take the lives of approximately 130,000 Americans each year – and these are just the known deaths and do not include improperly prescribed medications.

Medical and surgical accidents claim the lives of an additional 100,000 Americans per year.  It is estimated that drugs injure 1.5 million more people per year; many seriously, and many with just one dose!

Too many (or the wrong kinds) of drugs are estimated to be responsible for approximately 1.4 million hospital admissions per year, and the most significant driver of runaway healthcare cost.

An estimated 1 in 5 hospital admissions have their length of stay increased by 3.5 days due to hospital acquired infections.  Spinal surgery carries a 1 in 90 risk of paralysis, a 1 in 750 risk of death and a 1 in 4 chance of it leading to permanent disability.

In fact, prescription drugs and medical accidents are now two of the top ten reasons of unnecessary death in the United States.   The list comprising this could easily fill several pages.

We Respect Your Concerns For Safety.   Please Know The Truth……

  • The risk of injury coming about from chiropractic treatment is about 2 in one million.  No other health care procedure can even come close to claiming such a strong safety record.  In fact, last year approximately 1,200 people died from taking too much acetaminophen, so chiropractic is considered about 1,200 times safer than taking aspirin.
  • Statistics show you are far more likely to be struck by lightning than experience a serious injury through chiropractic procedures.
  • You have an astronomically greater chance of being injured in an automobile accident driving to and from your chiropractor’s office, than you are of being injured by chiropractic itself.
  • The greatest evidence of the safety of chiropractic is found in the actual cost chiropractors pay for liability insurance, which is approximately 1/15th of that paid by general medical providers.
  • In its entire 115 year history, chiropractic has not injured as many people as drug reactions and surgical  mistakes injure in any 7 day period.
