Is Chiropractic Care Safe? An Explanation from Our Everett Chiropractor

Before you visit a chiropractor in Everett, WA, you may have questions about the safety of the treatments. Chiropractic care is considered conservative care, which means that it is non-invasive and does not advocate for the use of powerful prescription and OTC medications. Because of these benefits, receiving a chiropractic treatment or adjustment does not interfere with any other medical care you might be receiving.

Our Chiropractor in Everett is Trained and Licensed

Chiropractic adjustments, as well as other treatments offered by chiropractic care professionals, are perfectly safe when they are given by properly trained, educated and licensed chiropractors. Our chiropractor, Dr. Lichfield, attained his doctor of chiropractic at Parker College and has more than 25 years of experience in helping individuals find pain relief and healing.

Complete Examinations and a Proper Diagnosis

Our chiropractor always starts with a complete examination and medical history before any treatment or treatment recommendation is given. This is to determine the exact causes of your pain and if chiropractic care would benefit you. Certain conditions, like extreme osteoporosis, spinal cancer, a history of strokes or severe heart disease and/or extreme spinal instability or severe peripheral neuropathy, may mean that you are not a good candidate for spinal manipulations. In these instances, our chiropractor would refer you back to your primary physician or a medical practitioner that would better suit your needs.
