As with many treatments, including massage physiotherapy or even exercise, patients sometimes experience a brief aggravation of their symptoms. Reports of muscle and ligament strains or sprains as a result of manual therapy techniques are rare. Cases of disc injuries identified following cervical and lumbar spinal adjustments are also rare, although no scientific evidence has determined such injuries are caused, or may be caused, by spinal adjustments or other chiropractic treatments.
There are infrequent reported cases of burns or skin irritation in association with the use of some types of hot packs or physical therapy treatments offered by some chiropractic doctors.
