a group that started getting spinal adjustments. In this study, 1,028 people had some form of allergies (the most common was atopic dermatitis and bronchial asthma).
X-Ray evidence and physical exams proved that 98% of these allergy patients had remarkably similar vertebral misalignments in their midback.
Over 88% of the people with dermatitis who received consistent spinal adjustments showed massive improvement in skin itching and over 71% showed improvement in overall skin condition. Compare that to 0% improvement of the patients who did not receive adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments remove interference to the nervous system and allow the body to
