When a patient seeks chiropractic care and when a chiropractor accepts a patient for such care, it is essential that they both be seeking the same goals. The practice of chiropractic in this office consists of analysis and adjustment of the spine for the purpose of locating and correcting vertebral subluxations. (spinal misalignments causing nerve interference). We also strive to educate and encourage our patients/practice members to become aware of and responsible to their well being.

Our intention is to provide you with the best care we can offer as outlined above. We do not offer care with the intent of “treating” or “curing” diseases or conditions.

Physicians, chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists using manual manipulation are required to advise their patients that there have been rare incidents of injury to the vertebral artery during the course of treatment. There have caused strokes or stroke-like occurrences which are usually of a temporary nature. The chances of this happening are approximately 1 in 3 million treatments. There have also been rare incidents of rib bruising or swelling of aggravation of symptoms. Appropriate tests will be performed on you to minimize your risks.

It is important that you understand that chiropractic care involves a “hands on” approach. During the delivery of a chiropractic adjustment or diagnostic procedure, there may be physical contact made in possibly sensitive areas. By signing below you are acknowledging that you have been informed of and consent to the type of care you will receive and that you have been made aware of any risks inherent in that care. You also acknowledge that you have been made aware of other treatment options. If a change in approach, additional testing, and referrals to other providers or a need to apply care requiring a different touch is required it will be discussed with you prior to it being administered. If at any time you are in any way uncomfortable with any aspect of the care that you are receiving, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Our practice is based on the simple truth that if we satisfy and delight our patients, they will get well faster and be more likely to tell others about their chiropractic experience. Since chiropractic results vary, we can’t guarantee results, but we can promise your satisfaction. Within 3 days of beginning care, if you are not completely happy with your decision to begin chiropractic care in this office, we will happily refund the money you’ve paid us.

I/We understand and consent to care at Waltham Chiropractic for myself/my family, as outlined in this “Informed Consent”.
