Spinal Manipulative Therapy (SMT) Safety
- A 2021 descriptive 3-year survey was conducted in the Netherlands at the Dutch Pediatric Surveillance Unit asking pediatricians to register adverse events associated with CAM therapies. Out of the 32 registered cases, 2 were thought to be directly related to manipulation of the neck of infants. One was described as transient facial palsy and the other was torticollis. Underreporting was suspected. ABSTRACT
