Los Angeles Chiropractor Malpractice Attorney

Southern California has totally embraced the trend of using alternative or natural medicine to treat many injuries. One of the most common types is chiropractic care. Whether or not these treatments provide real medical benefit is a matter of some debate. However, it is not debatable that if chiropractic care is not performed properly, it can be very dangerous.

Chiropractor Malpractice Attorney

If you or someone you care about has been injured during the course of chiropractic care and treatment, it is important to immediately consult with an experienced Los Angeles chiropractor malpractice attorney to protect your best interests. The legal team at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas has the knowledge and experience to handle any type of chiropractic malpractice claim.

What Is a Chiropractor?

Chiropractors provide alternative medical care and treatment that focuses on the correction of so-called “subluxations” in the spine. Chiropractors are mainly known for treating injuries related to the back and neck. However, some people believe that chiropractic care can also resolve other medical problems because the spine is the nerve center of the body.

The chiropractic profession is mainly based on the techniques of Daniel David Palmer, who developed a technique for adjusting the neck and spine dating back to the late 19th century. The requirements for chiropractic colleges vary by state. In some states, students can attend these colleges without completing an undergraduate degree first. Students can graduate from the program in as little as two years.

Chiropractors are not licensed to administer or prescribe medications or perform surgical procedures. The general medical education is much more limited than the education of a medical doctor.

The Risks of Chiropractic Care

One of the main types of chiropractic care is the manipulation of the spine. These adjustments have gained relatively mainstream acceptance as a type of medical massage therapy. While adjustments can bring much relief from neck, back and shoulder pain, it also has its serious risks.

Since chiropractors are not medical doctors and they do not receive the same advanced training in physiology and anatomy, their treatments and manipulations can cause serious injuries to patients. The treatments, most notably the vigorous manipulations of the vertebrae in the neck, can cause serious injury and even death.

Common Types of Chiropractic Related Injuries

One of the most common types of injuries associated with chiropractic care and treatment is stroke.  When a chiropractor adjusts the neck, the vertebral artery in the neck can tear or dissect, resulting in the patient to suffer a stroke.

Other common risks to chiropractic patients include:

  • Torn ligaments.
  • Herniated discs
  • Cracked vertebrae
  • Muscle or nerve damage
  • Paralysis

Regardless of what type of injury you or someone you care about suffered while under the care and treatment of a chiropractor, you should consult with an experienced Los Angeles chiropractor malpractice attorney to protect your legal rights. An attorney can help determine if you have a valid malpractice claim and get you the full compensation that you deserve.

Get the Compensation That You Deserve
