Study: Atlas adjustment decreases blood pressure

"According to lead author George Bakris, M.D., director of the hypertension center at the University of Chicago Medical Center, unlike other vertebrae, which interlock one to the next, the Atlas (also known as C-1) relies solely upon soft tissue (muscles and ligaments) to maintain alignment. It is uniquely vulnerable to displacement, which can occur without pain and often goes undetected and untreated."
"X-rays were used to document the effectiveness of the procedure to realign the Atlas vertebra with the spine. Participants were fully assessed again after the adjustment, as well as at the end of eight weeks"

Miten kaikki alkoi:
"Bakris began the study after a fellow doctor told him that something strange was happening in his family practice. The doctor had been sending some of his patients to a chiropractor. Some of these patients had high blood pressure.
Yet after seeing the chiropractor, the patients' blood pressure had normalized -- and a few of them were able to stop taking their blood pressure medications.
So Bakris, then at Rush University, designed the pilot study with 50 patients. He's now organizing a much bigger clinical trial."

Odotamme innolla lisää tuloksia, vaikka paljonhan tuosta jo on tietoa. Vain harva kiropraktikko osaa tuon.
