Chiro Adjustments & Autonomic Nervous System

Chiropractic adjustments affect the autonomic nervous system.The September 2000 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics published a study in which researchers measured the change in "Edge Light Pupil Cycle Time" (one of the light reflexes of the eye) in response to chiropractic adjustments. The results showed a decrease in ELPCT which demonstrates the direct link between a chiropractic adjustment and a response in the Automonic Nervous System. The ELPCT reflex is controlled by the Autonomic Nervous System, which is that part of the nervous system responsible for the control and function of internal body organs.
