Chiropractic, like other types of health care, is associated with potential risks in the delivery of treatment. While chiropractic treatment is remarkably safe, you need to be informed about the potential risk related to your care before consenting to treatment. Chiropractic care may be accompanied by post treatment soreness. Chiropractic treatment may aggravate a disc injury, or cause other minor joint, ligament, tendon, or other soft tissue injury. Manual adjustments to the thoracic spine, in rare cases, may cause rib injury or fracture. Precautions such as pre-adjustment testing and evaluations are performed to minimize risk. Heat generated by physical therapy modalities may cause minor burns to the skin. Extremely rare but more serious side effects such as stroke or even death may occur. A study in the Journal of the CCA (Vol 37, no 2, June ‘93) estimates the incident of stroke as 1 in 3,000,000 (three million) upper cervical adjustments. All side effects associated with chiropractic are rare and should be reported to your doctor of chiropractic promptly. Chiropractic is a system of health care delivery and therefore, as with any health care delivery system, we cannot promise a cure for any symptom, condition or disease as a result of treatment. An attempt to provide you the very best care is our goal and if the results are not acceptable, we will refer you to another provider who we feel will assist you in your situation. If you have any questions concerning the above, please ask your doctor of chiropractic. Having carefully read the above, I hereby give my informed consent to have chiropractic treatment administered.
