  Title The inappropriate use of the title chiropractor and profession of chiropractic when reporting an adverse vascular event: A commentary
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2021 ;48(1):57-65
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

This paper will review a recent case report of a carotid artery dissection adverse event by a Chinese manual therapist providing “chiropractic massage”. The focus of the report was a Chinese national receiving a treatment in China. However, through imprecise reporting, this event was extrapolated to be associated with the chiropractic profession and reported in a medical news outlet in Australia. A discussion is presented on the weaknesses of the case report and its reporting of the associated adverse event. The intention of this discussion is to provide standardization in the reporting of future adverse events in manual therapy to avoid the mis-reporting of events regardless of who is providing the information.
