Stroke After Chiropractor Visit – Were You Affected?

Medical Malpractice

Chiropractors have gained nationwide attention over the last couple of years due to the many social media videos making their rounds on our phones. Chiropractors are seen in these videos making incredible-seeming changes to the wellbeing and health of their patients, leading to many finding these professionals in their cities and towns so that they too can get these miraculous adjustments. Like anything in social media, the truth is obscured over a veneer of shininess, and people don’t hear about the horror stories regarding adjustments tearing arteries in the neck leading to massive brain bleeds and death, as well as stroke and blood clots, and even paralysis due to poorly done adjustments.

Here are some of the complications associated with chiropractic injuries:

  • Stroke
  • Torn arteries and internal bleeding
  • Lower limb paralysis
  • Spinal injuries
  • Slipped discs

A chiropractic stroke is more common than most people realize, and it usually happens when the chiropractor forcefully manipulates the neck, leading to the tearing of the vascular or carotid artery. This tear leads to the formation of a blood clot, which then travels to the brain from the neck after a couple of days to some weeks, stopping the flow of blood, thereby leading to a stroke.

Some of the signs of a chiropractic stroke include

  1. Confusion
  2. Inability to clearly speak or articulate
  3. Sudden weakness
  4. Numbness that typically affects only one part of the body
  5. Loss of vision
  6. Balance issues
  7. Not being able to clearly understand other people

Stories of Stroke After Chiropractic Adjustment

Individuals who may have suffered a torn artery may not be aware of this, but will often feel tenderness in their neck area and some heat.
