Vision Blindness

“Spinal manipulation was determined for visual disorders by four ophthalmologists independent of the other.

Patients were examined before and after manipulative treatment. in all cases, the vision improved (in either visual field and/or visual activity).”

-R.F. Gorman DO, “an Observer’s View Of The Treatment Of Visual Perception Deficit By Spinal Manipulation.” A survey of 16 patients, Sydney, Australia, 1991 (published privately)

An Example Of This:

An elderly man presented with traumatic vision loss. An optometric and ophthalmological examination revealed treatments were not indicated and the vision loss was permanent. The patient was referred to a chiropractor. After a series of adjustments to correct t subluxation in the atlas and axis (C1, C2) vertebrae, vision returned.

Facial Pain Relief

Unusual facial pains were linked to functional disorders of the vertical-occipital juncture due to musculo-tendon, vascular and sympathetic nerve irritations in upper cervical spine.

-P Wessely MD, and H. Tilscher MD (1984) Unusual Facial Pains Linked o Functional Disorders of the Cervical-Occipital Junction.   (Studies on Pain)

An example of this:

“Records of numerous cases including myocardial ischemia showed lesions of the spinal column are perfectly capable of simulating accentuating, or making a major contribution to (organic) disorders. There can, in fact, be no doubt that the state of the spinal column does have a bearing on the functional status of the internal organs.”

-W. Kunert MD, (1965) Functional Disorders of Internal Organs Due to Vertebral Lesions.


Cardiac Pain Relief

“Degenerative disease affecting bone and cartilage of the cervical spine and coronary infarction. Various extensions and mobilization techniques for the cervical spine seems to bear proof of the alleged correction, when they result in prompt elimination of cardiac pain”.

-Bruchmann, W. (1956) German Medical Weekly 81, 1740 “Osteochondrosis of the Cervical Spine and Coronary Infarction.”
