INFORMED CONSENT TO CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT

The Nature of Chiropractic Treatment: The doctor will use his/her hands or a mechanical device in order to move your joints. You may feel a “click” or “pop” similar to the noise produced when a knuckle is “cracked,” and you may feel movement of the joint. Various ancillary procedures, such as hot or cold packs, electric muscle stimulation or traction may also be used.

Possible Risks: As with any health care procedures, complications are possible following a chiropractic manipulation. Complications could conceivably include fracture of bone, muscular strain, ligamentous sprain, dislocations of joints, or injury to intervertebral discs, nerves, or spinal cord . A minority of patients may notice stiffness or soreness after the first few days of treatment. The ancillary procedures could produce skin irritation or other minor complications. There are reported cases of stroke associated with visits to medical doctors and chiropractors. Research and scientific evidence does not establish a cause and effect relationship between chiropractic treatment and the occurrence of stroke; rather, recent studies indicate that patients may be consulting medical doctors and chiropractors when they are in the early stages of a stroke. The possibility of such injuries occurring in association with upper cervical adjustment is extremely remote.

Probability of Risks Occurring: The risks of complications due to chiropractic treatment have been described as “rare” to “extremely rare”, statistically less often than complications from taking a single aspirin tablet. There has not been a single reported injury in our clinic since its inception.

Risks of Remaining Untreated: Delay of treatment allows formation of adhesions, scar tissue, and other degenerative changes. These changes can further reduce skeletal mobility and induce chronic pain cycles. It is quite probable that delay of treatment will complicate the condition and make future rehabilitation more difficult.

Unusual Risks: I have had the following unusual risks of my case explained to me:

I have read the above explanation of chiropractic treatment. I have had the opportunity to have any questions answered to my satisfaction. I have fully evaluated the risks and benefits of undergoing treatment. I have freely decided to undergo the recommended treatment, and hereby give my full consent to treatment.
