No one pays closer attention to injury statistics than Malpractice Insurance carriers.

Scott Haldeman, MD, DC reviewed malpractice claims records for a 10-year period between 1988 and 1997. In reviewing the outcomes following the application of 134.5 million cervical manipulations (commonly referred to as the chiropractic adjustment), the records indicated that there were 23 reported cases of stroke or vertebral artery dissection (VAD).

Of this group, 10 of the patients had the complicating factors of high blood pressure, use of oral contraceptives, or a history of smoking, all of which are associated with vascular disease. The actual incidence of stroke or VAD following cervical manipulation was found to be one per 5.85 million cervical adjustments. That means that the average chiropractor could work for 1430 years (or practice 48 full chiropractic careers!) before they might be involved with this type of litigation.

Other reports, listing a higher frequency of adverse events, have been compromised by the tendency of those authors to inappropriately list the pracitioner as a chiropractor, even when it turned out that the injury was caused by a medical doctor, a physical therapist or a hairdresser!

Evidence suggests that chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, improves migraine and cervicogenic headaches. The type, frequency, dosage, and duration of treatment(s) should be based on guideline recommendations, clinical experience, and findings. Evidence for the use of spinal manipulation as an isolated intervention for patients with tension-type headache remains equivocal.

A study in SPINE Journal revealed that health care expenditures for back pain sufferers were a staggering $90.7 billion in 1998 and that prescription drugs accounted for more than 13% of that figure. It is now an epidemic but has never been the answer to back pain. Considering that muscle relaxants are associated with slower recovery, and that steroid injections offer minimal relief, one has to ask why drug use costs continue to climb? Even care by physical therapists has been shown to prolong low back pain.

On the other hand, Chiropractors have been proven to help relieve back pain and the patients are relieved when they find a good one who helps them. You, too, can find relief for your back pain. Call today for an appointment 3340514-7600.

A chronic pain study at the University of Washington School of Medicine recently compared which treatments were most effective at reducing pain for neuromuscular diseases and found that chiropractic scored the highest pain relief rating (7.33 out of 10), scoring higher than the relief provided by either nerve blocks (6.75) or opioid analgesics (6.37).

British Medical Research Council published 2 papers in the British Medical Journal demonstrating both the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of chiropractic compared with medical management. These two papers found:

  Manipulation, with or without exercise, improved symptoms more than medical care did after both 3 and 12 months

  The authors concluded: “We believe that this is the first study of physical therapy for low back pain to show convincingly that both manipulation alone and manipulation followed by exercise provide cost effective additions to care in general practice.”

The UK Evidence Report summarized the scientifi c evidence on the eff ectiveness of joint manipulation and mobilization for musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal conditions. The authors reported that, according to current standards of scientific evidence, spinal manipulation/mobilization is effective in adults for acute, subacute, and chronic low back pain, migraine and cervicogenic headaches, cervicogenic dizziness, acute/subacute neck pain, and several extremity joint conditions. These researchers also supported the safety and appropriateness of spinal manipulation/mobilization for all of the conditions noted (Bronfort et al., 2010). In an accompanying commentary, Scott Haldeman, D.C., M.D., Ph.D., an internationally-recognized spine care specialist and researcher, concluded that the scientifi c community now recognizes that manipulation is of value for the vast majority of patients who seek chiropractic care (Haldeman & Underwood, 2010).
