Chiropractic negligence

Chiropractors focus on the spine and the nervous system.

Chiropractors treat problems with joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on the nervous system.

Treatment consists of a wide range of manipulation techniques (some very gentle) designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm.

Chiropractic treatment is generally considered to be a complementary and alternative medicine – a characterization that many chiropractors reject.


When is chiropractic treatment used?

Chiropractic treatment is used for several health conditions including:

  • Back, shoulder and neck pain;
  • Joint, posture and muscle pain;
  • Headaches and migraines;
  • Asthma;
  • Leg pain and sciatica;
  • Sports injuries;
  • Period problems; and
  • Colic (babies).

Is chiropractic treatment effective?

Some studies show that chiropractic treatment can be effective for short-term pain relief for acute low back pain, but evidence is inconclusive. It may also be useful in migraine or tension headache treatment, but evidence is limited. While chiropractic treatment is accepted by many conventional medical practitioners, there is little scientific evidence to prove that it is effective.

Chiropractors can cause injury due to negligent treatment that is administered during a course of chiropractic treatment.
