Yes chiropractic is safe. On average a medical doctor pays from $10,000 to over $50,000 a year for their malpractice insurance. Chiropractors pay about $1200 for the same insurance. We pay less not because the insurance companies like us, but because we don’t hurt people. We have been developing modern chiropractic care for well over 100 years.
Chiropractic is safe for herniated disc.
The herniated disc and the symptoms that go with it can be very difficult to treat. The medical options usually involve taking steroids, traction or worst case surgery. All of these options have a great potential for negative side effects. That being said chiropractic is the safest and most effective form of treatment. I have had to refer out a small number of patients whos disc were so bad they did not get full recovery. The majority respond very well.
During this time a great deal of energy has been spent creating techniques that are painless, effective and most importantly safe. When chiropractic treatment is compared to the alternatives of drugs and or surgery it really starts to look extremely safe. Call today to see what chiropractic can do for you. 757-222-0910.
