Neck adjustments
Is it safe to have my neck adjusted by a chiropractor?

I have had cervical fusion at the C5-6 level done in 1998.  My neurosurgeon advised me not to ever have my neck treated by a chiropractor in the future.

However, I have frequent moderate neck and shoulder pain which may contribute to the frequent  headaches/migraines I have also had most of my life.  I take Sumatriptan and Butabitol and see a neurologist for headaches (and face tingling with and as yet no diagnosed cause).

My chiropractor feels he can offer me relief with neck adjustments as he has helped many patients whom have had cervical neck fusion in the past.

What do you think?  I am strongly considering it, but don't want to risk anythink worse.   Or should I ask under the topic or orthopedics?
