Chiropractic care is very safe with very effective results. I generally don’t try to convince anyone of anything but I do explain the safety of chiropractic in these terms. The safety record of chiropractic is evident by the low cost of malpractice insurance for chiropractors. As a chiropractor, my malpractice insurance is $2,800 a year to insure my practice. Those rates are directly based on how often your profession gets sued or how often people get hurt under the care of your profession. Rates are so low because of the safety of chiropractic. The American Medical Association would like nothing more than to have chiropractic go away because we compete for market share and we actually tell our patients, “You don’t have to go on drugs right away; try chiropractic – naturally first.” So when we’re competing for market share of patients, the doctors don’t really like it and I think that may be part of the reason why chiropractic is questioned. Truth told, chiropractic is safe! Chiropractic is one of the safest professions around and I would put our safety record up against any other profession.
