Spine vol 24-8 1999). Other possible risks include strain/injury to a ligament or a disc in the neck (current statistics eg less than 1 in 139,000) and the low back (current statistics eg 1 in 62,000 Dvorak study in Principles & Practice of Chiropractic, Haldeman 2nd Ed.).

- I acknowledge that I have discussed with Dr John Surie the rare risks associated with my proposed care which include but are not limited to muscle and joint soreness or strains, nausea and dizziness, fractures, disc injuries including disc encroachments/ruptures, causing nerve irritation and referred symptoms, strokes (or like episodes) and an exacerbation and/or aggravation of my underlying condition.
