Can Chiropractor Adjustments make things worse ?

I have mild Scheuermanns disease and have had 3 chiropractic adjustments done. The pain has improved, but I have all of a sudden started having daily nausea and bowel trouble for about 2 weeks, and difficulty walking and also headaches worse than ever before and lots of tingling. Could the adjustments be causing more problems ? Should I stop getting the adjustments ?

    Chiropractor Adjustments can kill you.

    There can be side effects, and certain manipulations may not be appropriate for the underlying condition. Chiropractors train for many years so they should be well aware of any potential problems.  You should report these side effects to them. If still worried or unsure then consult your doctor.
