Raena Morgan: Hello, I'm visiting with Dr. JaDean Anderson who is a chiropractor. I would like to ask you Dr. Anderson, if chiropractic is safe for everyone? Dr. JaDean Anderson: Yes, chiropractic is safe for everyone, but it is very important that every patient goes through a chiropractic examination done by a licensed chiropractor to know whether or not all of their problems are safe to be treated by a chiropractic adjustment. Raena Morgan: You do manual adjustments? Dr. JaDean Anderson: Yes. Raena Morgan: How does that affect someone who is stiff; for example who has arthritis or has fibromyalgia? Dr. JaDean Anderson: With cases such as that, or basically any difference in a case between one person and another, all it does for a manual chiropractor is it make us have to change or modify how we perform the adjustment to the patient. So, we're applying a different force in a different manner to each patient. It's patient specific. Raena Morgan: All right. Thank you Dr. Anderson.
