- Doctors of chiropractic (DC) will ask questions about your health and the condition that brought you to the clinic as part of the diagnostic process. The chiropractors around me will use the history, the physical examination, and diagnostic studies to arrive at a specific diagnosis.

- The rate of complications from chiropractic care near me is extremely low. According to one estimate, only one complication per million individual sessions occurs. Among people receiving a course of treatment involving manipulation of the neck, the rate of stroke is perhaps one per 100,000 people; the rate of death is one per 400,000. By comparison, serious medical complications involving common drugs in the ibuprofen family (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs) are far more common. Among people using them for arthritis, NSAIDs result in hospitalizations at a rate of about four in 1,000 people, and death at a rate of four in 10,000. To put it another way, the rate of complications with these common over-the-counter drugs is perhaps 100 to 400 times greater than with chiropractic. Read More .....
