Dr. Eric Nepute interviewed Dr. Colin Derdeyn who is the head of the stroke center at Washington University and also helped write the article from the American Heart Association that related Chiropractic adjustments to strokes. Find out what he had to say:
Dr Eric Nepute came on the Allman in the Morning radio show to debunk the myth that was played on News Channel 5 KSDK in St. Louis that chiropractic adjustments could cause a stroke.
Just listened to your show March 1st…Agreed totally on the issue that chiropractic care does not cause strokes…And had actually discussed the Channel 5 blurb with my girlfriend, stating to her how the Medical Association would probably be behind it since they would rather have us be full of prescription drugs.
Both she and I go to the same Chiropractor for our adjustments, although he does not do manual/physical adjustments, but uses something called an “Activator”, and a computerized tool similar to a tuning fork.
Both of the devices work well for us. What is your opinion of them if I may ask?
Thanks for leaving the comment! As far as the activators we use those here at our office as well. For some patients that is the appropriate device and method. If you are getting results with it then that is what matters. Many times we use the activators early on in care and as the patient improves we are able to use other methods of adjustments as they graduate.
