Spinal Manipulation-Biomech-Physiology link

This review found that spinal manipulation changed biomechanics and physiology. This article offers a potential model upon which to develop hypotheses for the effects of manipulation and clinical reasoning.  Enjoy the read! Neurophysiological effects of spinal manipulation Pickar, J, 2002 Abstract: Despite clinical evidence for the benefits of spinal manipulation there is relatively limited evidence for the […]

CNS changes with Spinal Manipulation

This investigates the effects of Spinal Manipulation on blood biochemistry and neurophysiology. PET scan demonstrated changes in CNS activity including physiological relaxation and reduced sympathetic nervous activity. This is a desirable effect in certain sub-groups of our patients.
