MASON CITY, Iowa – The recent death of a playboy model has her family warning others about chiropractors.
The model died of a stroke Friday, which is being linked to an injury at her chiropractor’s office. Her death was ruled accidental. The cause was due to a tear in one of her major arteries that carries blood to the brain from her chiropractic treatment.
Her family is now concerned for those getting neck adjustments.
“When it comes to chiropractic adjustments, if you look at the statistics when it comes to the chances of having a severe reaction from manual adjustment to the neck, the chances are 1 in every 5.85 million,” Dr. Dave Haas with Haas Chiropractic Clinic said.
Haas says it’s sad what happened to the woman, but again he says going to the chiropractor is safe.
