“Interference to the nervous system results in permanent damage in a short period of time
and therefore, Chiropractic care should begin at birth on a preventative basis.”
(Dr. Arpad DeNagy, Rockefeller Institute)

“Better than 90% of the energy output of the brain is used in relating the physical body
against gravity.  The more distorted a person is (posture imbalances), the less energy is
available for thinking, metabolism, and healing.”
(Dr. Roger Sperry 1980 Nobel Prize Winner for brain research)

A retrospective assessment of network care using a survey of self rated health, wellness &
quality of life.
  • Benefits of chiropractic care were revealed as early as 1 month after beginning care.
  • There was no indication of maximum clinical benefit.
  • There were no plateaus in patient’s progress.
  • They continued to show improvements in their quality of life.

Maintenance Care: Health promotion services administered to US chiropractic patients age
65 and older, part II.
 Rupert, Manello, & Sandefur 2000

  • Patients 65 & older who received maintenance chiropractic care for 5 years or
    longer were studied.
  • These chiropractic patients under maintenance care spent only 31% of the national
    average on health care services (saved almost 70% on health!).
  • They had 50% reduction in medical provider visits.
  • They had better health habits, such as less use of cigarettes & prescription drugs.
  • 95.8% of these maintenance patients believed their care to be either “considerably
    or extremely valuable”.

Chiropractic Maintenance Care = Long Term Health & Saves Money

Impact of Postive Sagittal Balance in Adult Spinal Deformity.  Glassman, Steven MD;
Bridwell, Keith MD; Dimar, John R MD; Horton, William MD; Berven, Sigurd MD;
Schwab, Frank MD.  Spine, Vol. 30 (18), Sept. 18, 2005, pp. 2024-2029.

Studied:
752 adult patients
Patient’s systemic health status measured

Summary:
•        Increased pain & decreased function in patients as forward head posture increased.
•        All measures of health status showed significantly poorer as forward head posture
increased.
•        Even minor forward head / body position detrimental to patient’s overall health.
•        The severity of symptoms increases LINERELY with the increase in forward head
postion.
•        Even slight deviation in posture leads to health problems
•        Poor posture leads to poor health & the worse the posture, the worse the symptoms.

Good Posture = Good Health, Poor Posture = Poor Health

Chronic Back Pain is Associated with Decreased Pro-frontal & thalamic Gray Matter
Density.
 Vania Apkarian, Yamaya Sosa, Sreepadma Sonty, Todd Parrish, Darren
Gitelman. Journal of Neuroscience, Nov. 17, 2004, 24(46):10410-10415

Summary:
•        Normal gray matter atrophy is 0.5% per year of aging & atrophy caused by chronic
back pain is 5-11% per year.
•        The explanation for decreased gray matter is overuse atrophy caused by
excitotoxicity & inflammatory agents.

Chronic Back Pain = Rapid Brain Decay

Feb 18, 2005 Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research.

Summary:

Objective physiologic changes & associated health benefits of chiropractic adjustments in
asymptomatic subjects: a literature review.
 Hannon, Sean BA, DC. Journal of Vertebral
Subluxation Research, April 26, 2004, p. 1-9.

Summary:
•        The research revealed significant improvements in patients respiration, ROM, heart
rate variability, cardiovascular function, immune function, muscle strength, overall athletic
ability one chiropractic care was initiated.
•        Patients noted improvements in reaction time, information processing, visual acuity,
stress & reproductive hormones, healting and recovery time, general health of senior
citizens, reduced labor times of pregnant women following or during chiropractic care.
•        These initial findings document objectively measured physiologic changes & then
associated health benefits in nearly every major system of the human body.  It is plausible
that chiropractic care may benefit every function of the body.

Chiropractic Adjustments Affect the Entire Body!

Self-reported non musculoskeletal responses to chiropractic intervention: a multinational
survey.
 Leboeuf-Yde, Charlotte DC MPH Phd, Pedersen, Eva MSC, Bryner, Peter
Mchiro Sc., Cosman, David DC. JMPT, June 2005

Summary:
Patients who began chiropractic care without any neuromusculoskeletal problems, reported
the following body faculties ad definitely better:
Alleries 11%        Breathing 27%        Circulation 21%        Digestion 26%
Asthma 17%        Hearing 13%                Rining in ears 19%        Heart function 11%

Long term chiropractic care increases long term health improvements.  The longer
the patients were under chiropractic care the more positive changes they
experienced.
