99.6% of Australian parents affirmed chiropractic healthcare benefitted their child

 

Today, the Australian Chiropractors Association (ACA) president, Dr David Cahill (chiropractor) welcomed the updated statement on paediatric care by the Chiropractic Board of Australia.

 

“The statement serves to reinforce the confidence the Australian public has in chiropractic care provided by registered ACA member chiropractors,” said Dr Cahill.

 

The Safer Care Victoria Review has shown chiropractic care for children to be extremely safe.

 

Of the 29,599 online submissions received from across Australia (the largest survey of its kind), there were no reports of harm to a child receiving chiropractic healthcare.

 

Of those submissions, 21,824 responses were from parents who had accessed chiropractic healthcare for their children, and there was not a single report of significant harm in these submissions.

 

“In a particularly strong endorsement, 99.6% of those parental submissions affirmed that chiropractic healthcare benefitted their child highlighting the exemplary safety record of chiropractic healthcare,” Dr Cahill said.

 

ACA member chiropractors are healthcare professionals who effectively treat a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders.

 

Chiropractors are 5-year university degree educated healthcare professionals, equipped with expertise enabling them to tailor the appropriate care for people of all ages including children.

 

Established in 1938, the Australian Chiropractors Association (ACA) is the peak body representing chiropractors.

 

The ACA promotes the importance of maintaining spinal health to improve musculoskeletal health through non-invasive, drug-free spinal health and lifestyle advice to help Australians of all ages lead and maintain healthy lives.
