Safety of Manual Therapy in Children

Safety is one of the most common concerns about pediatric chiropractic care. The safety profile for chiropractic in children appears to be similar to that in adults. Most side effects are mild and self-limiting such as muscle soreness. There are some case reports of extremely rare adverse events, but usually, the adverse event is related to underlying pathology that was not properly diagnosed or providers that have not modified their techniques.
