Chiropractic manipulation: neurologic complications
Chiropractic healthcare is based on the relationship between the vertebral column and musculoskeletal system and on the function of various systems of the body, particularly the nervous system. Cervical spine manipulations are carried out for spinal problems and are claimed to benefit many other diseases as well. However, neurologic complications can result from cervical spinal manipulation, such as compression or dissection injury of the vertebral artery, causing stroke.
