  Title Did the SMT practitioner cause the arterial injury? Spontaneous vs. traumatic dissection
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2002 Sep;32(3):99-110
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes The close temporal relationship between cervical spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) and the development of brain, brainstem and/or ischaemic incidents suggests a cause-and-effect relationship. This conclusion is strengthened by anatomical, biomechanical and pathologically plausible mechanisms to account for the onset of central nervous system symptoms and signs, and may incorrectly lead investigators (medical, insurance, legal and press) to the conclusion of an obvious cause-and-effect relationship. Other mechanisms for identical outcomes are investigated in this paper.
