Is chiropractic safe?


Yes, chiropractic is considered a very safe choice within medicine. Every medical treatment carries a greater or lesser risk. Chiropractic is a safe choice, for example thanks to the thorough examination that precedes each treatment.
In addition, the chiropractor with us in The Hague and Leidschendam-Voorburg has always completed a university education. It concerns a 5-year full-time course, which therefore has great similarities with other medical studies.
You may have read or heard of a squatter instead of a chiropractor or have you heard from others that this is dangerous can be. In those cases, we are happy to explain how we ensure safe treatments.

Treatment after thorough examination

Because, ‘is chiropractic safe’? We can only answer a resounding ‘yes’.
Before treating, we always do a thorough investigation into what is going on. We do a physical intake, for example with orthopedic, chiropractic or neurological tests. Only when we have a good idea of ​​what we will treat can we start.

Is Chiropractic Safe?

To ensure safety, not everyone worldwide is allowed to call themselves a chiropractor. The chiropractor at our practice in The Hague and Leidschendam-Voorburg has always completed an international university study. This makes us an international DC Doctor of Chiropractic. The title is not yet recognized in the Netherlands, although we are of course affiliated with the most important professional association (NCA) and the quality body (SCN). This is how we ensure a completely safe treatment.
