"Few serious harmful events stemming from spinal manipulation in children have been reported compared to the number of manipulations delivered", says new University of Alberta research. Study co-author Dr. Sunita Vohra, associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Alberta and director of the Complementary and Alternative Research Education Program (CARE) at the Stollery Children's Hospital said "The question we pose is, 'are these events truly rare, or are they under-reported?'" The research team identified 14 cases of direct adverse events involving neurological or musculoskeletal events. Nine cases involved serious adverse events such as hemorrhage or paraplegia, two cases reported moderate adverse events requiring medical attention such as severe headache and three involved minor adverse events such as mid-back soreness.
