Chiropractic Article of the Week
HealthSource of North Frisco would like to share an excerpt from an article in theSeptember 17, 2012 issue of the scientific journal the Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research regarding chiropractic care and the immediate and positive effect on the nervous system. The study used technology rather than just patient reports to conclude their evidence.
In this case a 26 year-old man went to the chiropractor for an evaluation. He was not suffering from any physical problems at that time. The chiropractic examination performed included a thermal scan to measure skin temperature along the spine. The initial scan showed significant variations along the spine in temperature with the biggest changes showing up in the neck. There were also some smaller changes noted in the mid back area of the man's spine.
A second scan was performed within 30 seconds after the patient's first specific chiropractic adjustment was given. A comparison was then made to see if any changes between the scans could be observed. The second scan showed a significant and immediate change toward normal of the thermal scan made on the young man.
