Chiropractic Care and Adjustments have always been questioned by conventional medical professionals due to the simple fact that alternative medicine and therapies are seen as less-than-helpful and potential scams.
Before strict licensing requirements, it was common for any fraudster with an office in the Triad area to proclaim themselves as North Carolina's "chiropractic expert" and actually worsen the medical conditions of the hapless patients who went to them hoping for proper medical care.
Luckily, times (as well as Greensboro laws) have changed and chiropractic care for neck pain and other ailments has recently gained much more trust in the medical community.
When done properly, a chiropractic neck adjustment is not only safer and better for the patient’s health but also comes with the benefit of having almost zero side effects that are commonly associated with prescription drugs (which often do more harm than good in the long run).
While it has its risks, the chances of medical emergencies caused by wrong chiropractic neck adjustments are extremely rare compared to the thousands of deaths caused by opioids and other prescription drugs deemed safe and healthy by millions of Americans.
