A new survey of European chiropractors confirmed that chiropractic is safe for kids. Less than 1% of children experienced side effects from chiropractic treatments, and they were all mild. No serious side effects were reported.


The survey included 956 chiropractors from 20 different European countries who had a total of nearly 20,000 pediatric visits a month. In the survey, 57% of pediatric patients were treated for musculoskeletal conditions, 23% for neurological issues, 12% for gastrointestinal complaints, and a smaller number were treated for infections or other miscellaneous concerns. Children represented 8.1% of chiropractors’ patient base in Europe, lower than in the US average of 17%.


As more parents realize the benefits and safety of chiropractic for children, many chiropractors say they’re beginning to see more kids in their offices according to a recent story from WAFB 9 News.
