  Title The vertebral subluxation premise: Principle 3, altered physiological functions
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2023 Oct-Dec;4(2):47
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Narrative: This is the fourth of a 6-paper series which presents a descriptive narrative of the Western medical literature to identify and report evidence for each of the five principles of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC) premise as established in 1947 by Janse, Houser, and Wells (National College of Chiropractic). This literature comprises predominately medical referencing and includes Chiropractic papers in the electronic Index to Chiropractic Literature.

This paper presents the evidence for Principle Three by documenting the evidence for the clinical findings of altered physiological function associated with the VSC including effects on skeletal muscle, vascular smooth muscle, sphincters and organs.

This 6-part series describes the incontrovertible acknowledgement and weight of recognition of the effect of physical, biomechanical, and physiological vertebral disturbances collectively contributing to the VSC and demonstrates strong support of the chiropractic nomenclature, neurophysiological and clinical implications of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex as recorded in the medical literature.
