How Safe is Chiropractic?
This may seem a little grim, but it is a well-known fact that the best way to determine the safety of healthcare professions is by comparing malpractice premiums.
Chiropractors pay a small fraction of the malpractice premiums that medical doctors pay, especially orthopedists, surgeons and osteopaths.
In fact, chiropractic is one of the safest, if not the safest, of all the healing arts.
Questions and Answers About Chiropractic
Question: Do I need to see a chiropractor for the rest of my life?
Answer: No, only for as long as you’d like to remain healthy.
That might seem like a coy answer but life is constantly giving us stress – whether it be from gravity, emotional issues or toxins in the environment. In order to deal with these stresses, we need to be functioning at our optimum. A balanced body structure, free from nerve pressure (subluxations), is essential for you to live your fullest.
These stresses quietly build up. See your chiropractor for a “stress-release” from subluxations and you and your family will be healthier.
Feed your microbiome (your gut or intestinal flora)
You should include a lacto-fermented food with cooked foods: fermented vegetables (sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles); fermented dairy products (yogurt, buttermilk, cheese); beverages (kombucha, kvass, lacto-fermented sodas); and even lacto-fermented meat and fish.
Avoid these foods and drugs that damage your gut flora
- Refined carbohydrates (sugar, high fructose corn syrup, white flour)
- Extruded grains (cold breakfast cereals)
- Antibiotics and oral contraceptives
Go to www.westonaprice.org for nutrition information and recipes about fermented foods.
Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seems to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?
Probably most of them.
Urinary incontinence in a pregnant patient. The patient presented for chiropractic care during the second trimester of pregnancy with complaints of urinary incontinence of more than three years’ duration.
Her history revealed a previous traumatic birth with severe perineal tearing immediately preceding the onset of her incontinence problem. She was unable to hold much urine and would frequently urinate on herself when sneezing or coughing.
The patient was diagnosed with vertebral subluxation of the sacral and lumbar region,
as well as incoordination and muscle spasms.
Chiropractic adjustments were utilized to correct her sacral and pelvic subluxations. After six office visits, she reported complete resolution of her urinary incontinence. (1)
A three-year-old with autism. A three-year-old autistic boy had a history of chronic constipation, fussy eating, easy gagging and vomiting, poor sleeping habits, poor weight gain and hyper-sensitivity to touch.
Chiropractic care for vertebral subluxation was provided for 9 visits over 12 weeks. The boy showed improvement in behavior, communication and sociability as his subluxations were reduced. (2)
Sporadic hemiplegic migraine. A 36-year-old woman had been suffering from off-and-on hemiplegic (side of head) migraines (SHM) since she was 17. Her symptoms included numbness and paralysis on the left side of her body including her face. She was prescribed Topamax™ and Celexa™ by her MD with no improvement.
Chiropractic examination revealed subluxations of her lower neck (cervical spine), upper thoracic spine (mid-back) and pelvis. She had four chiropractic adjustments. Her longstanding migraines completely resolved. (3)
Did You Know?
Your brain extends down your back as your spinal cord – a collection of billions of nerves wrapped in a tight bundle.
Messages from your brain travel down nerves through your spinal cord, branch out and reach all your muscles, glands, joints, ligaments and organs. This communication is essential for ideal health.
It’s so important that your spinal cord is surrounded by bones – your spinal column – permitting movement plus providing protection. Sometimes your spinal bones lock up or subluxate and irritate the very nerves they are supposed to protect. The result can be dis-ease or body malfunction.
The goal of your chiropractor is to locate these areas of stress – subluxations – that cause body malfunction, and correct them. DC means more than Doctor of Chiropractic – it means Doctor of Cause.

Best eulogy ever.
Rabbi Sapperstein, fresh out of rabbinical school, had to officiate his first funeral for a homeless man with no friends or family. The funeral was to be held at a new cemetery across town and this man was the first to be laid to rest there.
Rabbi Sapperstein arrived late, but noticed a few workers gathering around the grave opening. Young and enthusiastic he poured out his heart and soul as he gave his sermon and recited the prayers. He was so powerful that he brought the cemetery workers to tears.
When the service was over, the rabbi walked to his car and as he opened the door he heard one worker say to the other, “I never seen anything like that before and I've been putting in septic systems for over 20 years."
