After 30 years of practice, I have accumulated quite an impressive collection of literature. Ranging from books, journals, reports, research document you name it I’ve got it.
A couple times of year I feel the paper encroaching in on my office, before it turns to a paper jungle I organize and archive my collection to create serenity in my own space.
Often I stumble across a piece of research that may have slipped through previously or refresh my memory in amazement. With the amount of medical findings everyday you can imagine the chances.
On Monday I was fortunate enough to stumble across a very interesting review from 2001. In it, it was found that people not under chiropractic care are far more susceptible to strokes.
In fact people not under chiro care suffer strokes at a rate of more than twice compared to those who receive chiropractic.
It also mentions some studies have put the number far higher relaying non-chiropractic patients are 27,500 times more likely to suffer strokes.
Now let’s see them report this on Nightline or in the Toronto Star, huh… Not a chance.
