I understand that, as with any health care procedure, there are certain complications, which may arise during a chiropractic adjustment and/or acupuncture treatment. While rare those complications from a chiropractic adjustment include but are not limited to fractures, disc injuries, dislocations, muscle strain, Horner’s syndrome, diaphragmatic paralysis, cervical myelopathy or costovertebral strains. Some types of manipulation of the neck have been associated with injuries to the arteries in the neck leading to or contributing to stroke or other serious complications. On rare occasions acupuncture may have side effects such as dizziness, fainting, bruising, numbness or tingling near the needling sites that may last a few days. Slight bruising is a possible side effect of acupuncture. Highly unusual risks of acupuncture may include infections, spontaneous miscarriage, minor nerve damage, and organ puncture. We comply with strict protocols for needle usage and associated healing modalities. Dr. Smith will carefully review your medical history and evaluate which treatment best fits your condition before application of any therapy.
