Charles Kently, D.C., saw Jack Orson for headaches, unresolved neck pain and low back pain that had not resolved a few months following a motor vehicle accident. After receiving several chiropractic adjustments with some improvement in his low back, Mr. Orson went to the ER for the most intense neck pain he ever had, as well as numbness and weakness in his left arm and hand.
If you're like many D.C.s, you strive to inform others about the benefits of chiropractic care, and you may even hold seminars in your community to educate people about chiropractic and other health topics. Attorney Jennifer Boyd Herlihy has seen firsthand the risks when doctors fail to take certain steps.
