                                 Informed Consent to Chiropractic Care & X-ray


Every type of health care is associated with some risk of a potential problem. This includes chiropractic health
care. We want you to be informed about potential problems associated with chiropractic health care before
consenting to treatment. This is called INFORMED CONSENT.

Chiropractic adjustments are designed to improve the mobility (movement) and alignment of spinal joints. This
is typically accomplished with the doctor’s hands or with the use of hand-held instruments or tables.
Frequently, adjustments create a “pop” or “click” sound/sensation in the area being treated. The sound is due
to a change in pressure of the vertebral joints. The following is a list of potential risk associated with
chiropractic treatment and adjustments.

Stroke: Some types of manipulations of the neck have been suggested to be associated with injuries to the
arteries the neck, leading to or contributing to serious complications, including strokes. Even that simple
statement has been the subject of disagreement. Based on current published findings, the risk of stroke
associated with chiropractic adjustments is as follows:

               Spine 1999;24(8): 785-794, JACA 199;36(9):42-47 “Strokes caused by adjustments are an extremely rare event.
                Estimates show that an adverse reaction to neck adjustment occurs on the order of 1 per 500,000 to 1 per 4 million
                adjustments.

               A comparable treatment for neck dysfunctions is the use of anti-inflammatory/pain killers (Advil, Motrin, Nuprin, and
                Aspirin) medications. Serious adverse effects can occur as a result of this treatment. Studies (JAMA 1998;279:1200-
                1205)
                show that 16,500 people die every year as a result of gastrointestinal bleeding from taking there anti-inflammatory
                medications and show that adjustments are “several hundred times” safer and that the risk of complications are 4%
                while chiropractic adjustments show a .001% risk.

               Even though some people claim there us a direct relationship between adjustments and stroke, other researchers
                say that the evidence for a direct link is not there Dr. Scott Haldemen MD, Ph.D., says that “vertebrobasilar artery
                dissection (injury) after neck movement, trauma, or manipulations should be considered a rare, random,
                unpredictable, complication associated with these activities…” (Spine 1999;24(8): 785-794)

Disc Herniations: Disc Herniations that create pressure on the spinal nerve or on the spinal cord are frequently
and successfully treated by chiropractors and chiropractic adjustments, traction, etc. This includes both the
neck and lower back. Yet, occasionally, chiropractic treatment will aggravate the problem and could
potentially increase the symptoms. These problems occur so rarely that there are no available statistics to
quantify their probability.

Soft Tissue Injury: The term “soft tissue” primarily refers to muscles, ligaments, tendons, etc. While muscles
function to move bones, ligaments function to provide support, stability and restrict movement. Rarely a
chiropractic adjustment, traction, massage, etc. may cause injury to muscle/ligament fibers. The result is a
temporary increase in pain and necessary treatments for resolution, but there are no long-term effects for the
patient. These problems occur so rarely that there are no available statistics to quantify their probability.

Rib Fractures: The ribs are found only in the thoracic spine of mid-back. They extend from your back to your
front chest are. Rarely, a chiropractic adjustment will crack a rib bone, and this is referred to as
                                        Kirkland Spine & Wellness

                               Informed Consent to Chiropractic Care & X-ray



fracture. This occurs only on patients that have weakened bones from such things as osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis can be noted on our
x-rays. These problems occur so rarely that there are no available statistics to quantify their probability.

Soreness: It is common for chiropractic adjustments, traction, massage, exercise, etc. to result in a temporary
increase in soreness in the region being treated. This is nearly always a temporary symptom that occurs while
your body is undergoing therapeutic or structural change. It is not dangerous, but please do tell your doctor
about it.

Other problems: There may be other problems or complications that might a rise form chiropractic treatment
other than those noted above. These other problems or complications occur so rarely that it is not possible to
anticipate and/or explain them all in advance of treatment.

                                                 X-RAY CONSENT

The doctor has explained that the purpose of the x-rays about to be taken is to analyze the spine for structural
and/or mechanical problems and to determine the appropriateness of chiropractic spinal adjustments. If the
doctor discovers a non-chiropractic “unusual findings” when reviewing this x-ray, you will be informed. You
then can determine if you should seek the services of an additional health care provider for advice, diagnosis,
or treatment for the unusual findings. Understand that seeking advice from other type of health care provider
should not interfere with the spinal corrective care provided by this office.

I fully understand the above and consent to chiropractic spinal x-rays.

I hereby request and consent to the performance of chiropractic adjustments and other chiropractic
procedures including various modes of therapy modalities (including rehabilitative structural traction) and
diagnostic x-rays, on myself (or on the patient names below for whom I am legally responsible) by the licensed
doctors of chiropractic of Kirkland Wellness & Spine or any doctor who now or in the future, works as a relief
doctor.

I have had an opportunity to discuss with my doctor the nature and purpose of chiropractic adjustments and
other procedures and understand that spinal manipulations involves the doctors placing his or her hands on
my spine and delivering quick thrusts or impulse to involved area(s). I also understand and am informed that,
as in the practice of medicine, in the practice of chiropractic there are some risks to treatment including, but
not limited to:
fractures, disc injuries, strokes, dislocations, sprains and soreness. I do not expect the doctor to be able to
anticipate and explain all risks and complications. I also wish to rely upon the doctor to exercise judgment
during the course of procedure which the doctor feels at the time, based upon the facts then known to him or
she is my interest.

Chiropractic is a system of health care delivery and therefore, as with many health care delivery system we
cannot promise a cure for any symptom, disease, or condition as a result of treatment in the clinic. We will
always give you our best care, and if results are not acceptable, we will refer you to another provider who we
feel will assist your situation.

OPERATIONS: Your healthcare records may be used in our business planning and development operations,
including improvements in our methods of operation, and general administrative functions. We may also
use the information in our overall compliance planning, healthcare review activities, and arranging for legal
and auditing functions.

There are certain circumstances under which we may use or disclose your health information without first
obtaining your Acknowledgment or Authorization. Those circumstances generally involve public health and
oversight activities, law-enforcement activities, judicial and administrative proceedings, and in the event of
death. Specifically, we may be required to report to certain agency information concerning certain
communicable diseases, sexually transmitted diseases or HIV/AIDS status. We may also be required to
report instances of suspected or documented abuse, neglect or domestic violence. We are required to
report to appropriate agencies and law–enforcement officials information that you or another person is in
immediate threat of danger to health or safety as a result of violent activity. We must also provide health
information when ordered by a court of law to do so. We may contact you from time to time to provide
appointment reminders or information about treatment alternatives or other health related benefits and
services that may be of interest to you.

information/record will become the property of the new owner.

Others Involved in Your Healthcare: Unless you object, we may disclose to a member of you family, a
relative, a close friend or any other person you identify, your protected health information that directly
relates to that person’s involvement in your health care. If you are unable to agree or object to such a
disclosure, we may disclose such information as necessary if we determine that it is in your best interest
based on our professional judgment. We may use or disclose protected health information to an authorized
public or private entity to assist in disaster relief efforts and to coordinate uses and disclosures to family or
other individuals involved in healthcare.

Communication Barriers and Emergencies: We may use and disclose your protected health information if we attempt to
obtain consent from you but are unable to do so because of substantial communication
barriers and we determine, using professional judgment, that you intend to consent to use or disclose
under the circumstances. We may use or disclose your protected health information in an emergency
treatment situation. If this happens, we will try to obtain your consent as soon as reasonably practicable
after delivery of treatment. If we are required by law or as a matter of necessity to treat you, and we have
attempted to obtain your consent but have been unable to obtain your consent, we may still use or disclose
your protected health information to treat you.
Except as indicated above, your health information will not be used or disclosed to any other person or
entity without your specific Authorization, which may be revoked at any time. In particular, except to the
extent disclosure has been made to governmental entities required by law to maintain the confidentiality of
the information. This information will not be further disclosed to any other person or entity with respect to
information concerning mental-health, drug and alcohol abuse, HIV/AIDS or sexually transmitted diseases
that may be contained in your health records. We likewise will not disclose your health-record information
to an employer for purposes of making employment decisions, to a liability insurer or attorney as a result of
injuries sustained in an automobile accident, or to educational authorities, without your written
Authorization.

                                                 Terms of Acceptance


When a patient seeks chiropractic care and we accept a patient for such care, it is essential for both to be working
towards the same objective.

Chiropractic has only one goal. It is important that each patient understand both the objective and the method that will
be used to attain it. This will prevent any confusion or disappointment.

Adjustment; An adjustment is the specific application of forces to facilitate the body’s correction of vertebral
Subluxation. Our chiropractic method of correction is by specific adjustments of the spine.

Health; A state of optimal physical, mental and social well being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Vertebral Subluxation; A misalignment of one or more of the 24 vertebra in the spinal column, which cause alteration of
nerve function and interference to the transmission of mental impulse, resulting in a lessening of the body’s innate ability
to express its maximum health potential.

We do not offer to diagnose or treat any disease or condition other than vertebral Subluxation.
However, if during the course of chiropractic spinal examination, we encounter non-chiropractic or unusual findings, we
will advise you. If you desire advice, diagnosis or treatment for those findings, we will recommend that you seek the
services of another health care provider.

Regardless of what the disease is called, we do not offer to treat it. Nor do we offer advice regarding treatment
prescribed by others. OUR ONLY PRACTICE OBJECTIVE is to eliminate a major interference to the expression of the body’s
innate wisdom. Our only method is specific adjusting to correct vertebral subluxations.

I, __________________________ have read and fully understand the above statements.
                   (print name)
All questions regarding the doctor’s objectives pertaining to my care in this office have been answered to my complete
satisfaction. I therefore accept chiropractic care on this basis.
