When you visit a chiropractor for treatment, the expected benefit is relief from pain or discomfort. As a health practitioner, your chiropractor has a responsibility not to cause harm. Unfortunately, some patients end up with injuries as a direct result of improper methods.
How these improper methods are applied during treatment varies in each situation. You may have an existing injury that should receive treatment from a more qualified medical professional, or the chiropractor could cause new injuries. In any case, you may be able to claim compensation for the harm caused.
Two common injuries that can result from improper or incorrectly applied chiropractic treatment include spinal damage and herniated discs. Localized paralysis is also a potential injury that may be linked to a visit with the chiropractor.
You have the right to expect professional and responsible treatment when you engage with a chiropractor. Anything less may amount to malpractice. Moriarty Injury Lawyer can help you pursue a case for compensation if you believe your injuries were caused by techniques used in your treatment sessions.
Nerve, Neurological & Other Complications
Nerve damage and sciatica can occur after a bad treatment experience with a chiropractor. You may also begin to suffer from vertigo and various types of neurological damage. In extreme cases, some patients have suffered from stroke that may be linked to the sharp snapping of the neck in what is known as cervical manipulative therapy.
