Connecticut Board Considers Warning About Risk Of Stroke Following Chiropractic Neck Manipulation
Date:2/13/2010

Washington, DC Lawyer Michael A. Abelson applauds public hearing, but says more steps need to be taken to warn patients of stroke risk.

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) February 13, 2010 -- Attorney Michael Abelson applauded recent hearings by the Connecticut Board of Chiropractic Examiners to consider whether to require chiropractors to warn patients about the possible risk of stroke from neck manipulation.

“Connecticut should be commended for taking a hard look at this widely overlooked cause of serious and permanent injury,” said Abelson, a Washington, DC lawyer who accepts patients from across the nation who have suffered strokes after chiropractic neck adjustments. “Now the state needs to take definitive steps to warn people about this risk. Most people have no idea that they’re risking their life when they submit to a neck adjustment. They should be informed.”

The Connecticut Board of Chiropractic Examiners held four days of hearings in January on the issue of a link between stroke and neck manipulation and heard testimony from injured patients and families of patients who have died. The board is expected to issue a ruling eventually on whether to mandate that chiropractors inform patients of the potential risks of chiropractic adjustment and get informed consent.

Chiropractors and patient advocates are closely watching the Connecticut case. If Connecticut requires such a stroke warning and informed consent before chiropractic spinal manipulation, it is believed that it would be the first state in the nation to do so.

The proposal comes after a group of patients tried to persuade the Connecticut General Assembly to approve legislation to make the public more aware of stroke risk—a proposal resisted by chiropractors.

Abelson said it’s critically important to alert people to the link between chiropractic neck adjustmen
