Chi­ro­prac­tic Shown to Help Body Phys­i­ol­ogy

From the April 26, 2004 release of the peer-​reviewed sci­en­tific jour­nal, the “Jour­nal of Ver­te­bral Sub­lux­a­tion Research” (JVSR), comes a very large lit­er­a­ture review study show­ing the mul­ti­ple ben­e­fits of chi­ro­prac­tic care on peo­ple who are not suf­fer­ing from pain or other obvi­ous problems.

This lit­er­a­ture review looked at more than twenty stud­ies involv­ing sub­jects who were specif­i­cally described as, “asymp­to­matic,” “healthy,” “nor­mal,” or “free from phys­i­cal injury.” In addi­tion, an equal num­ber of stud­ies were found also doc­u­ment­ing objec­tively mea­sured health ben­e­fits in sub­jects who had no symp­to­matic pre­sen­ta­tion, (asymptomatic).

The results of this large review showed mea­sur­able objec­tive improve­ments in things such as range of motion, blood pres­sure, heart rate, plasma cat­e­cholamine lev­els, immune responses, enhanced res­pi­ra­tory burst, pupil reac­tions, slower heart rate, improved pul­monary func­tion, as well as many other objec­tively mea­sured indi­ca­tions of improved body physiology.

The con­clu­sion of the study stated, “Data reviewed in this arti­cle lend strong sup­port to the pop­u­lar con­tention that chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ments, for the pur­pose of cor­rect­ing sub­lux­a­tions, con­fer health ben­e­fits to peo­ple regard­less of the pres­ence or absence of symp­toms.” The JVSR arti­cle authors fur­ther con­clude, “A sig­nif­i­cant amount of pre­lim­i­nary evi­dence sup­ports that peo­ple with­out symp­toms can ben­e­fit from chi­ro­prac­tic care. It is plau­si­ble that chi­ro­prac­tic care may be of ben­e­fit to every func­tion of the body and have the poten­tial for long-​term, over­all health ben­e­fit to those receiv­ing chi­ro­prac­tic care.”
