The purpose of this paper was to review the current literature on the topic of chiropractic adjustments (manipulations) having a causal relationship with cerebral vascular accidents (CVA.)
A review and comparison of statistics of CVA occurrence in the chiropractic population with statistics of the general population, a comparison of injury rates of common medical procedures and activities of daily living to the rate of injuries that are related to chiropractic adjustments and a discussion of the validity of currently implemented CVA screening tests is performed.
Current literature citations were retrieved from Medline, Chiroaccess (Mantis),The Chiropractic Clipping Service and the On Purpose audiocassette service. The literature was reviewed and statistics and information were analyzed to assess risk levels of chiropractic adjustments and to assess the validity of screening procedures.
