Autonomic Nervous System and Chiropractic Adjustments

Researchers found that chiropractic adjustments have an effect on the Autonomic Nervous System. They measured the changes in "Edge Light Pupil Cycle Time" (ELPCT) which is one of the light reflexes of the eyes. This reflex is controlled by the Autonomic Nervous System. A decrease in the Edge Light Pupil Cycle Time was observed with chiropractic adjustment implying a direct link between a chiropractic adjustment and a response in the Autonomic Nervous System. The study was published in the September 2000 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiologic Therapeutics.

If this is true, it will have implications well beyond vision problems. The Autonomic Nervous System is that part of the nervous system responsible for the control and function of internal body organs. Chiropractors believe that interference to the nervous system creates a situation whereby various parts of the body will not be functioning at their full potential. This research shows a link between chiropractic adjustments of the spine and the part of the nervous system responsible for the control of internal organs. Chiropractors suggest that this shows conclusively that chiropractic care can have a positive affect on organ system health problems.
