Good question, chiropractic is safe for cervical adjustments; there are specific positions to place an individual in to correct an imbalance of the cervical spine. An evaluation and history will determine the type of care and treatment options to resolve your discomfort.
Take care and be well.
Dr. Eric Miller
As a specifically trained upper cervical doctor, I've seen and heard stories of nurses, physical therapists, massage therapists and other types of "body" workers doing manipulations of the head and neck only to have them coming in with dizzyness, vision disturbances, migraines, facial pain, or other radiating symptoms after such experiences.
Make sure you ask specifically if the professional you're allowing to address your head or neck condition is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic.
Manipulation of the cervical spine is safe if there are no underlying problems. This can be determined by an examination and x-rays to see if an adjustment is right and safe for you. Thank you for the inquiry
