Of course it can be dangerous. Any medical treatment can be. The question is, is the actual risk more than the benefit? How common is the risk, how great the benefit?

I have no dog in this fight. In fact, I am very resistent to chiropractors as well. But simply saying there is a risk means nothing; every effective treatment will have risks. The only thing the doesn't, AFAIK, is homeopathy. Well, ok , maybe you risk water toxicity.
