A chiropractor focuses the relationship between the spine and nervous system. They use non-surgical treatment to treat lower back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, and car accident injuries. Getting adjusted by a chiropractor is generally safe and can help your mobility. Unfortunately, bone misalignments by a chiropractor is possible.
There were more than 10,000 chiropractor accidents, which caused injuries in the first half of 2020 in the United States alone. The main and most extreme injury a patient sustains as a result of a chiropractor is a stroke. Additionally, other potential injuries and symptoms that can occur from bone misalignments are pinched arteries, spinal stenosis, frequent headaches, numbness/tingling of the limbs, facial paralysis, muscle weakness, and disc herniation.
A bone misalignment by a chiropractor would fall under medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is more complicated than just a standard negligence case. In Maryland, the statute of limitations for a medical malpractice lawsuit must be filed within five years of the time that the injury was committed, or within three years of the date the injury was discovered, whichever comes first. Virginia, on the other hand, has a statute of limitations of two years. Lastly, the statute of limitations in Washington D.C. is three years.
