During your examination the doctor may decide it is medically necessary to include digital xray imaging of one or more areas of your spine or extremity. Women who think they may be pregnant will not be imaged. Please let your doctor know if there is a chance you may be pregnant.
As with any healthcare procedure, there are certain complications which may arise during chiropractic manipulation/ massage therapy / acupuncture / cold laser. These complications include but are not limited to: muscle strain, tenderness, fractures, soft tissue injuries, cervical radiculitis and 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 complications including stroke. Some patients will feel some stiffness and soreness following the first few days of treatment. We use comprehensive examinations to screen for contraindications to care; however, if you have a condition that would otherwise not come to our attention, it is your responsibility to inform us.
