Chiropractic neck manipulation and stroke questions


Hey well ive been seeing a chiro for a while now for neck stiffness and dizzyness, i was told that the problem was in my neck my c1 and c2 vertabra was all misaligned and i was going to the chiro 2 time a week then 1 time a week and now just once a month, however i am slightly worried about the whole controversy of stroke related to neck manipulation, and this last time it kind of hurt when i got adjusted which i know is pretty normal but i dont know i just have anxiety and it kind of freaks me out well thanks guys.

  1. You have a larger chance of having a reaction to taking Motrin or Advil than you do with having a reaction with having neck manipulation done by the skillful hands of a chiropractor. Don’t worry about it but let the doctor know of your concerns and let him or her explain the risks. Risks are very low.
