A study of the university of Chicago found that special chiropractic treatments can lower the blood pressure. Researchers showed that 25 of 50 patients with high blood pressure had a lower blood pressure after chiropractic treatment. This group had chiropractic treatments with an adjustment at the top vertebra: the atlas, while while the other group underwent fake chiropractic tratment. Because patients don't feel the different techniques being used, they don't know the category they belonged to.

On average the systolic decreased with 14 mgHg and the diastolic with 8 mmHg in comparison with the fake treatment group. During this 8 week study none of the patients used medication to lower the blood pressure.

Dr. Dickholtz, the chiropractor conducting this study, found that the atlas vertebra is the fuse of the body. At the base of the brain, two centers are controlling all muscles of the body. If the base is pinched, it doesn't hurt, but irritates the centers. That's the effect of an atlas vertebra that' has moved only half a millimeter.

Because of subluxations the (proprioceptive) stimuli to the brain are disturbed, causing the brain to send out wrong signals to the nerves responsible for movement. This causes concentration disorder and hyperactivity. Hyperactivity is an unconscious reaction to improve the impulses through moving. Impressions from outside aren’t filtered properly, so an explosive response is the result. The present subluxations might not be noticeable, but can have enormous consequences for the way people feel and behave. The weight of a 10 cent coin can decrease the functionality of a nerve by 60%. The purpose of chiropractic treatment is to make sure the nerves can function 100%.

Chronic fatigue
If the spine is out of balance, the nervous system is under pressure and causes malfunctioning of the body. It weakens the muscles and alters the energy flowing to each part of the body. The blood circulation decreases and the internal organs might not get enough blood. Your energy and resistance diminish, causing chronic fatigue

Asthma and bronchitis
Asthma and Bronchitis can not be cured by regular medicine, the goal is relief of symptoms by heavy medication such as Cortison and Bronchodilators. Many patients with bronchial diseases think they are doomed to a life of using medicines. A lot of muscles are needed to breath and move. All these muscles need signals from the nerves to function. Blockades in the nerve system can lead to a weaker respiratory system. The chiropractor removes these blockages.

Baby’s colic
Being born is a traumatic event for a baby. By the twisting, pulling and pressing of the spine during the process of being born, subluxations can occur that might cause severe abdominal pain. This colic usually causes the baby to cry heavily. Colic mostly occurs during the first two weeks and may disappear without any reason between the third and sixth month. A chiropractic adjustment is (mostly) painless for everybody. A baby can even sleep through a treatment and appears to be happy after the pressure on the nerves is gone and the heavy abdominal pain disappears.

Inflammation of the middle ear
Study has proven that inflammation of the middle ear often appears because of poor drainage of the deep lymph glands in the neck. This increases the level of fluid, creating a good medium for bacteria and viruses. The poor drainage is caused by different things, but mainly because of muscle spasms that contract the narrow drainage vessels. The chiropractor will remove the blockage, so the tension of the muscles in the neck disappear and the body can restore itself.

Dr. D. Gutman discovered that 80% of the newborn babies he examined suffered from subluxations in the neck. This might cause inflammation in the nose, ear and throat .
