  Title The neurophysiological evaluation of the subluxation complex: Documenting the neurological component with somatosensory evoked potentials
Journal CRJ. 1994 ;3(1):40-48
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) testing is a non-invasive, objective procedure, which achieves a high degree of sensitivity and specificity for identifying neurological insult. The purpose of this study was to: 1) use this test to validate the neurological component of the subluxation complex and 2) confirm the removal or decrease of neurologic compromise as a result of the chiropractic adjustment.

The initial SSEP evaluations revealed neurological insult in 93% of the patients in this study.  Eighty-five percent of patients with documented deficits of the sensory nervous pathways were shown to have significantly improved SSEP waveforms on post-adjustment evaluation. These changes in waveforms were consistent with improvement or elimination of the varying subjective complaints.
