A narrative review of all published reports of adverse effects of chiropractic pediatric spinal manipulation was performed to assess the risk of adverse effects of chiropractic spinal manipulation in the pediatric population and to promote a culture of safety along with full reporting of adverse events in the chiropractic profession

Based on the published literature, chiropractic spinal manipulation, when performed by skilled chiropractors, provides very low risk of adverse effect to the pediatric patient. Vigilance to detect occult pathology as well as other steps to maintain safe practice are of utmost importance.

Adverse effects from chiropractic spinal manipulation are rare with 2 moderate and 4 severe events reported during a 59 year period with up to 30 million treatments estimated per year. Current reports show a very low rate (<1% in 8,290 treatments) of mild transient side effects lasting less than 24 hours.

Dr. Jennings Smith, DC, of Amarillo grew up in Flat, Texas, ten miles southeast of Gatesville.  Originally called Mesquite Flat, the town name was rejected by the United States Postal department in the 1890s and it became just Flat, Texas in 1897.  Farming was the primary occupation until the 1940s, when much of the farm acreage was taken over by the establishment of Fort Hood. 

I attended and graduated Parker Chiropractic in 1997 and associated with Dr. Larry Montgomery in Belton, Texas for almost two years. I then traveled around Texas for two years providing relief and locum tenens work for other doctors.  

I then served in the Army for four years serving in the Old Guard, 3rd Infantry, the oldest active duty regiment in the US Army, having been first organized in 1784.  It is the Honor Guard unit of the Army in Arlington, Virginia.  I served as part of the Continental Color Guard and carried the nation’s flag in front of Ronald Reagan’s casket when he was taken to lay in state at the Capitol after he passed away.
