Millions of patients love their chiropractor and appreciate our unique and safe approach to recovery from pain. Significant research suggests that chiropractic is the safest approach available for relief from neck pain, back pain, headaches and other “musculo–skeletal” complaints. Lets review that research, and discuss how modern medicine has contributed to the Myth that chiropractic care is dangerous.


Dr. Lucian Leape, researcher at the Harvard Medical School of Public Health, also states that only 13% of medical procedures have ever been tested for appropriateness by randomized trials. He noted that adverse events occurred in 3.7 percent of all hospitalizations. Worse yet, 13.6 percent of those adverse events led to death!


This fully referenced report reveals that:

  • 2.2 million people experience in-hospital, adverse reactions to prescribed drugs per year.

  • 20 million unnecessary antibiotics are prescribed annually for viral infections

  • 7.5 million unnecessary medical and surgical procedures are performed annually, and

  • 8.9 million people are exposed to unnecessary hospitalization every year!

  • The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year!

    That is a mind-boggling 2147 people killed daily!


    Hospital negligence (not complications) is the 4th highest cause of PREVENTABLE death in the United States as published by law in the “Wall Street Journal” , from  conducted study by the American Medical Association!


    Compare this to the fact that since 1895 upon the inception of Chiropractic not one person has been killed by this conservative type of health care. This fact is evident when reviewing the staggering yearly cost difference in the two profession’s malpractice insurance;

    M.D. =$100,000. + yearly, Verses D.C.= $1,400.+ yearly. Do the math and see where the real risk is found! Remember there is good and bad in any profession, from auto mechanics to restaurants, and when you find a good one , you want to hold on to it.  Find a Chiropractor that is right for you and you will have a safe and affordable approach to your health care needs.
