Chiropractic does work
Chiropractic is effective and chiropractic does work. Countless studies document the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of chiropractic. Even more significant is that 25% of British Columbians regularly visit their family chiropractor to recover from workplace accidents, car crashes, sports injuries or aches and pains associated with everyday living. It is common for patients to report that range of motion improves, pain lessens and quality of life improves as a result of chiropractic treatment. Sometimes changes are immediate and in some cases depending on the condition, changes are slow to occur. Patients notice a difference in 3-5 treatments and full recovery after 6-8 visits on average* depending on the nature of your injury.
*Although the Provincial average is 6-8 visits the range is large with some patients responding much quicker and a few taking much longer.
Chiropractic adjustments are safe
Chiropractic adjustments are safe and in fact a chiropractic treatment is one of the safest forms of treatment. Many studies, including Neck Adustment: Benefits and Safety, have already proven the effectiveness and safety of chiropractic care. Serious adverse effects are rare, less than 1 in 10 million treatments. Compared to drugs and pain-killers, this risk is significantly lower.
