A radiographic test of upper cervical chiropractic theory

, : A radiographic test of upper cervical chiropractic theory. Journal of Manipulative & Physiological Therapeutics 4(3): 129-133

To test the monocausal theory which identifies the atlas as fundamental to all disease processes, the records of 500 chiropractic patients were examined. Statistical evaluation confirms certain basic upper-cervical assumptions, i.e., that disorders in 1 part of the spinal column may be reflected in pathology in another part. In particular, the cervical spine is more likely than the lower back to be implicated in visceral-organic disorders. Atlas misalignments, do not correlate with the presence or absence of symptomatology, and thus, the single most fundamental postulate Of upper cervical theory failed in this test.
