Carotid, vertebral and basilar arteries are moved by chiropractic manipulation. Research has shown that vertebral arteries may be particularly vulnerable to tearing.When the neck is twisted at a high velocity by a chiropractor, there’s a risk that the arteries can tear or dissect. The dissection doesn’t tear through the arteries: these are intimal tears, very small ones, on the inside lining of the arteries.
