In an attempt to discredit chiropractic and discourage people from seeking care from doctors of chiropractic, some proponents of allopathic medicine continue to disseminate misleading information about a possible link between cervical adjustments and strokes.
It is the position of The World Chiropractic Alliance that such misinformation is a deliberate and unethical scare tactic which does not stand up to critical analysis. Even if we restrict our investigation to cervical adjustments — which have been the focus of many of the media and medical attacks — the only reasonable conclusion which can be drawn is that chiropractic adjustments do not pose any significant risk of stroke and are remarkably safe.
