Chi­ro­prac­tic Adjust­ments Affect the Auto­nomic Ner­vous Sys­tem

In a recent study pub­lished in the Sep­tem­ber 2000 issue of the Jour­nal of Manip­u­la­tive and Phys­i­o­logic Ther­a­peu­tics, researchers showed that chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ments have an effect on the Auto­nomic Ner­vous Sys­tem. This research was designed to mea­sure the changes in “Edge Light Pupil Cycle Time” (ELPCT) which is one of the light reflexes of the eyes. This reflex is con­trolled by the Auto­nomic Ner­vous Sys­tem. The results showed a decrease in the Edge Light Pupil Cycle Time there­fore show­ing a direct link between a chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ment and a response in the Auto­nomic Ner­vous System.

The impli­ca­tions of this research go well beyond the eye itself. The Auto­nomic Ner­vous Sys­tem is that part of the ner­vous sys­tem respon­si­ble for the con­trol and func­tion of inter­nal body organs. Chi­ro­prac­tors have said for over 100 years that inter­fer­ence to the ner­vous sys­tem cre­ates a sit­u­a­tion whereby var­i­ous parts of the body will not be func­tion­ing at their fullest innate poten­tial. Despite all the reported cases of peo­ple with a vari­ety of inter­nal prob­lems respond­ing to chi­ro­prac­tic care, the med­ical com­mu­nity would always dis­miss these cases as a coincidence.

This new research adds much cred­i­bil­ity to the reports of mirac­u­lous results under chi­ro­prac­tic by sci­en­tif­i­cally show­ing a link between chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ments of the spine and the part of the ner­vous sys­tem respon­si­ble for the con­trol of inter­nal organs. This clearly val­i­dates and rein­forces the great results that chi­ro­prac­tors have reported to see over the last 100 years. Chi­ro­prac­tic care can have a pos­i­tive affect on organ sys­tem health problems.
