I will ask you this question, is medicine dangerous? There are fewer documented cases of injuries each year from adjustment per year than from mis-prescribed drugs, drug overdose, bad drug combinations and treatments in the medical profession. Sure we sometimes see (and all too often) a newspaper article in which a person was injured by a chiropractic-like manipulation. If you read further into the story you will probably see that it was a friend of the individual or the individual that delivered the injury and not a trained Chiropractor. We as Chiropractic students practice and perform hundreds to thousands of adjustments before we ever deliver them to a patient in need. We practice and critique each other while in school in order to ensure we are more than capable of performing them on you, the patient.
