Safety and Research
Because chiropractic is non-invasive, the risk of a serious adverse effect is extremely low. While most people feel a sense of relief, it is possible that following a chiropractic treatment you may experience mild soreness that should go away quickly. Before you have a chiropractic treatment, ask to discuss any concerns you have with your chiropractor. If you have any lasting effects or concerns, talk to your chiropractor.
Chiropractic is a health discipline firmly grounded in science and endorsed by research. Researchers, both within and outside the chiropractic profession, are actively involved in continuing to study the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic treatment.
The growing body of evidence continues to prove the value of chiropractic with consistently high marks for clinical effectiveness, cost efficiency and patient satisfaction.
The Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative (CCGI) and the Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation (CCRF) offer information on current best practice and research.
