Is chiropractic dangerous?


It’s an important question: is chiropractic dangerous? Some are startled by the slightly creaking sound, which is created by a vacuum. It’s completely harmless, but we understand that you might be surprised the first time.
Chiropractic is completely safe. In fact, chiropractors’ liability insurance is among the lowest in the medical world. This is due to the very small risks involved. Our chiropractors in practice in The Hague and Leidschendam-Voorburg have completed a 5-year university education. They know the human body, know how to treat it and work very carefully.

For the neck, back and shoulders

So, is the neck, back or shoulder chiropractor dangerous? No, and not for other parts of the body either.
Instead, we always clearly visualize where the problem is in the body. We determine where complaints come from and what is probably the cause. Based on this, we determine together what the treatment plan should look like.
Once it is clear where the complaints come from and how we should treat them, we make a plan. The chiropractor treats the complaints, so that they diminish or even disappear completely.

Dutch Chiropractors Association (NCA)

To guarantee the safety of chiropractic, for example, there is the NCA. This is the Dutch Chiropractic Association, the most important trade association in the Netherlands. In addition, there is the quality body Stichting Chiropractie Nederland. The two organizations prevent chiropractic from becoming dangerous.
Strict guidelines apply, both for the training that a chiropractor must follow and for the working method in practice. This way we offer completely safe treatments in The Hague and Leidschendam-Voorburg, so you don’t have to worry about that.
