Is a Chiropractic Adjustment Safe?

Is Chiropractic Care Safe Windsor On Dr Scott ColasantiSome people who have never visited a chiropractor may ask: Is a chiropractic adjustment safe?

Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest, non-invasive and drug-free options available for relief and symptom improvement for a wide variety of physical ailments.

Chiropractic care has an excellent safety record, although it’s important to note that no medical treatment is completely risk-free of adverse affects.

While most patients experience relief after a chiropractic adjustment, some people may feel:

  • Slight discomfort, mild soreness or brief pain which generally lasts no longer than 24 hours[1]
  • Stiffness
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness

It’s important to us that all patients are confident and informed. If you are considering chiropractic care and have concerns, please reach out to us: 519-258-8544
