Is chiropractic safe?
‘Remarkably’ according to a New Zealand study.

Among other things, the resulting 377 page document concluded that chiropractic would have a positive influence on the health of a country.
The commission investigated two safety issues that had been commonly raised by chiropractic critics. The first being the safety of chiropractic spinal adjustments, and the second, the notion that seeking chiropractic care delays medical treatment. After extensive inquiry, the researchers found both safety concerns to be unfounded. Because of the lack of evidence to the contrary, the commissioners determined chiropractic care to be remarkably safe.
