Answering Questions about Chiropractic and Stroke Part 1
This two-hour webinar will answer the concerns your patients, professional colleagues and others may express about the risks of chiropractic neck adjustments. Participants will review the mechanism of vertebral artery dissection and stroke and outline the major risk factors and warning signs that you must be able to recognize in your office and discuss why these strokes seem to be related to—but not necessarily caused by—chiropractic neck treatments. Attendees will learn the specific steps to take if a patient seems to have a complication from a neck adjustment, and will also get detailed tips on how to discuss these perceived risks with concerned patients in a sensitive and sensible way.
