Neck Adjustments And Stroke Is A Joke
In the 1980's in a court of law of the United States, it was found that the American Medical Association as an organization, through its members, had attempted to get rid of the chiropractic profession. There were many ways this was done, but one of the most glaring was the manipulation of their members through bad information and junk science.
The thinking being if the American Medical Association could prove to the doctor members that chiropractic was dangerous, that chiropractors themselves were uneducated quacks and that the services provided had no value.
This thinking would then be passed onto the public through their family doctor and encounters with medical providers.
This line of assault proved to be very effective.
If you've read my previous material you'll know that for the conditions chiropractic treats, we typically get better results at a lower price and if there is reasonable access to a chiropractor people will see a chiropractor for their condition, costing the medical profession millions of dollars.
All of this is pointed out, not to point fingers at the medical model, but to introduce the following point.
One of the ploys of the medical profession has been to create fear about neck adjustments, stating that there is an increased risk of stroke.
This fear actually seemed to catch hold.
There have been many articles that have been released minimizing the association between neck adjustments and stroke.
Well a definitive article was published this year stating that
We found no significant association between exposure to chiropractic care and the risk of VBA stroke. We conclude that manipulation is an unlikely cause of VBA stroke.
Rest assured that chiropractic neck adjustments do not cause strokes and when performed in my office are safe, relieving and therapeutic.
