Ended up in ER after being adjusted here
by Trigger Finger , 07/29/2012
My "trigger finger" thumb's tendon sticking in it's tendon sheath is why I came here. Increasingly excruciating pain escalated to extremely sharp and unrelenting began about 45 min. after being adjusted here, which necessitated Emergency Room care, medical care follow-up, and prescribed weekly multiple sessions of physical therapy to treat and hopefully undo the damage of either the chiropractor's assessment position(s) and/or the adjustment itself ....I now believe chiropractic can be very dangerous. My rib popped out, in addition to other injuries sustained. Had this chiropractor actually treated the ONLY reason I was there--my thumb--even if only to tell me he really didn't know how to treat it or that chiropractic doesn't fix trigger fingers and refer me to a medical modality appropriate for fixing a trigger finger, then my belief in and respect for the chiropractic profession likely would have remained undamaged. One star for "disappointing" is a very kind and generous rating, in my opinion.
