“Currently, there is no way to determine whether one may be at risk, making chiropractic neck manipulation akin to playing Russian roulette. One of the greatest myths ever is that stroke and death due to chiropractic neck manipulation is a rare and unfortunate side effect of a ‘valuable treatment’. In fact, 99.9 per cent of all chiropractic neck manipulations have nothing to do with treating neck pain, or any other musculoskeletal pain but by the unproven, non-scientific belief system that chiropractic upper neck manipulation is a cure for every disease…Even going to a chiropractor for musculoskeletal pain can cause stroke, therefore, it is recommended that you never let a chiropractor touch you above the shoulders.” Sharon Mathiason, The StarPhoenix (18th August 2011)
