Understanding the Safety of Chiropractic Care

Written By Scottsdale Spinal Healthcare on July 1, 2018

Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to treat neuromusculoskeletal conditions and the pain associated with them. 

But is it safe?

Studies say that chiropractic care is one of the safest and most benign ways to treat this kind of pain. 

This is because chiropractors use simple, gentle, non-invasive techniques to guide muscles, ligaments, and joints back into their proper places.

The Safety of Chiropractic Care and Its Effectiveness

Chiropractic care is not only safe — it’s effective. 

Studies consistently find chiropractic care to be more effective than traditional medical care in treating lower back pain.

In addition, chiropractors do not use drugs to mask pain symptoms, instead treating the root cause of the discomfort. 

That’s a good thing — with opioid addiction on the rise in the United States, the less painkillers are prescribed, the more patients are protected from potential harm.

Patients First — How the Safety of Chiropractic Care Focuses on Individual Wellness

In this world of enormous medical clinics in which patients are just a number, chiropractors are universal in caring for their patients on a holistic, individual basis.

This personalized method of treatment is, in part, responsible for the high level of satisfaction that patients who are undergoing chiropractic care report.

In fact, communication quality was determined to be one of the greatest predictors of patient satisfaction among chiropractic patients. That’s because chiropractors make an effort to truly listen to their patients.

Your chiropractor will collect all the details of your pain — frequency, level of pain, area of pain, type of pain — along with other symptoms. Only after a thorough investigation of all patient issues and complaints will he or she outline a treatment plan.

Treatment plans are tailored to individual patients based on their unique symptoms, their physical condition, and other factors.

There’s no “one size fits all” diagnosis or treatment with chiropractic care — you get personalized attention from start to finish.
