On an annual basis, approximately 22 million Americans visit chiropractors, for a number of medical reasons. Chiropractic treatment can alleviate neck and back pain, anxiety, and even chronic headaches. After a quality visit with a chiropractor, patients often claim to experience increased energy, healthier sleep patterns, and substantial decrease in pain.

All that considered, negligent chiropractors can cause irreparable harm to patients. When a patient visits a chiropractor, they are putting their trust and physical health in the hands of a professional. Here in the state of Illinois, chiropractors are supervised and regulated by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR). Chiropractic malpractice can come with serious ramifications, include loss of your medical license.
