Chi­ro­prac­tic Is Safe National Cam­paign Started

Chi­ro­prac­tic has a long his­tory of being the safest of the major health pro­fes­sions, with the fewest neg­a­tive events. Although no pro­ce­dure is entirely safe, chi­ro­prac­tic care stands as being one of the safest forms of health­care avail­able. To high­light this fact, on Octo­ber 26, 2005 the Inter­na­tional Chi­ro­prac­tors Asso­ci­a­tion (ICA) ini­ti­ated a cam­paign to offer the truth about the chi­ro­prac­tic pro­fes­sions safety.

This cam­paign con­sists of press releases, bill­boards, bumper stick­ers and in-​office mate­r­ial. ICA has also estab­lished a web­site for con­sumers, offer­ing fac­tual infor­ma­tion on chi­ro­prac­tic safety and effec­tive­ness, and con­trast­ing fac­tual and well-​referenced infor­ma­tion on the risks of many stan­dard med­ical pro­ce­dures. Now on-​line at www​.chi​ro​prac​ti​cis​safe​.org, this web­site is being con­stantly updated and improved, so con­sumers can access respon­si­ble infor­ma­tion on the vital issue of safety, free from the scare tac­tics that have so reg­u­larly been used by chiropractic’s crit­ics and com­peti­tors to drive patients away from seek­ing chi­ro­prac­tic care.

In the past com­pet­ing groups and crit­ics of chi­ro­prac­tic have tried to falsely call into ques­tion the safety record of chi­ro­prac­tic. ICA Pres­i­dent Dr. John K. Maltby states, “ICA mem­bers world­wide are deter­mined to share with the pub­lic an accu­rate, eth­i­cal and respon­si­ble mes­sage about chiropractic.”

The all too fre­quent attacks on our pro­fes­sion falsely alleg­ing safety con­cerns are not an issue of free speech,” said Dr. Maltby. “This is a mat­ter akin to the famous Cry­ing fire in a crowded the­atre.’ The pub­lic is enti­tled to hon­est, accu­rate infor­ma­tion on such impor­tant issues as safety and effec­tive­ness, and the ICA is deter­mined to pro­vide a strong, accu­rate mes­sage in the face of the offen­sive and inap­pro­pri­ate efforts we have seem from some of chiropractic’s crit­ics and com­peti­tors. This is the moti­va­tion behind this new campaign.”
