The chiropractor manipulated her neck, and back, because my daughter indicated that she was in pain. This was a mistake, that could have had lasting and negative effects. When I heard this, I went with her to the next day, and was told, she would have to have an MRI. In my estimation, an MRI, should have been performed before the chiropractor manipulated her neck. She did have a concussion.
She should not have seen a chiropractor, though I understand they have a medical license. She should have gone right away to a general practitioner, who would have ordered an MRI/Catscan, before sending her to physical therapy. You are right-there is an order to these things. This is meant as no disrespect toward chiropractors. The school should not have sent her there first.
