Increase in Cerebral Blood Flow indicated by increased Cerebral Arterial area and pixel intensity on brain magnetic resonance angiogram following correction of Cervical Lordosis.
PUBLISHED: Brain Circ. 2019 Jan-Mar;5(1):19-26. doi: 10.4103/bc.bc_25_18. Epub 2019 Mar 27. Pub Med: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31001596
AUTHORS: Katz EA1, Katz SB1, Fedorchuk CA2, Lightstone DF2, Banach CJ1, Podoll JD3.
RESULTS: Pixel intensity increased 23.0%-225.9%, and a Student’s t-test determined that the increase was significant (P < 0.001). Regression analysis of the change in pixel intensity versus the cervical lordosis showed that as the deviation from a normal cervical lordosis increases, percentage change in pixel intensity on MRA decreases.
CONCLUSION: These results indicate that correction of cervical lordosis may be associated with an immediate increase in cerebral blood flow.
Case History: Chronic Lower Back Pain, Disc Herniation and Prolapse
This is not a testimonial. This is a Case Study of a real patient who attended the Practice.
Mr. B. is a 47 year old male factory worker that attended the Practice with acute debilitating lower back pain and disability. His diagnosis was that of lower back disc injuries (L3, L4 and L5). He was suffering chronic spinal pains, mid back and lower back pain with associated myofascial (muscle) weakness in the lumbopelvic region.
Impaired Trunk Posture in Women With Fibromyalgia Pain
Increased Thoracic Kyphosis and Sagittal In-Balance ==> Increased Chronic Pain
A recent paper prepared out of the University of Valencia and Miguel Hernández University, Spain has been published through PubMed by Sempere-Rubio N and Aguilar-Rodríguez M et. al.
It investigates the relationship of mid back posture, thoracic kyphosis and forward head carriage in patients with Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia Syndromes.
Continue to Strengthen and Stabilise Your Spine
Spinal Reconstructive Care is designed to further strengthen and stabilise your spine. With decreased pains and better mobility, true healing, spinal correction and restoration of health can occur.
Spinal Reconstructive Care usually involves one session per week to one session per fortnight for most adult patients. Reviews are usually conducted depending on the health goals of the patient and complexity of spinal injuries.
The Key Benefits of Spinal Reconstructive Care:
- To Build on the work of the Initial Intensive Care and Corrective Care Programs.
- Continue your Postural and Structural Correction.
- Continue Strengthen and Stabilise Your Spine.
- Improve Core Strength and Stability.
- Continue to retrain muscle, ligaments and joint structures to achieve a more permanent Correction.
Nerve Damage in the Neck Related to Posture Balance
Sagittal Balance Matters For Neck Nerve Damage
A recent paper presented to World Neurosurgery, Science Direct and published through the PubMed investigates the relationship of posture and compression of the spinal cord in the neck.
As a Corrective Chiropractor, utilising postural and structural correction techniques of Chiropractic BioPhysic, this is one of many papers on PubMed, validating what we do.
Mr. F. is a 28 year old male garden worker who attended the Practice with what we call ‘American Posture’.
This is a real patient within the Clinic, with untouched photographs.
And yes, he was only 26 when he started care. He was suffering with chronic low back pain (CLBP). He had been enduring spinal pain for 10 years and things were getting progressively worse.
In terms of postural distortion; Mr. F. had what we affectionally call an ‘American Posture’. American Posture is a very common structural disturbance we see in a clinic. And as the name suggests it is very common postural problem within America.
American posture can come in different shapes and sizes. It is a driver of many lower back and neck conditions. As well chronic pain and disability.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the degree to which the geometric line drawings used in Chiropractic Biophysics Technique (CBP) on lateral cervical radiographs are reliable.
CONCLUSIONS: The reliabilities for intra- and interexaminer were all greater than .70, indicating that these measurements in CBP technique would be considered accurate enough to provide measurements for future clinical studies. The data indicated that the C6-C7 relative rotation angle was the least reliable measurement.
