Flashcards in Neuroimmune Model Deck (7)
What is the Neurodystrophic/Neuroimmune Hypothesis?
Neural dysfunction as a result of VSC is stressful to the body and lowers tissue resistance and immune responses
What is the most accepted current concept of the Neurodystrophic/Neuroimmune Hypothesis?
modification of the Sympathetic nerve activity locally and globally (Sympatheticotonia)
Correcting the subluxation will
_______ SNS activity,
________ catecholamine release,
_______ the Th1 response which will improve infection fighting; and
_______the Th2 response, which will reduce allergy/atopic disease signs and symptoms.
T or F
Studies showed HVLA type of adjustments were associated with a Short-term Increase in production of TNF (TumorNecrosis Factor)
Decrease in TNF
** Subluxation may result in sustained production of TNF Alpha which is not normal
What are the three components of Kents 3-D model of VSC
1) Dyskinesia (Somatic DysAfferentation)
2) Dysponesis (Disafferentation leads to DisEfferentation)
3) Dysautonomia (Functional Autonomic Dystonia)
What is Chesnuts Foundational Premise #7
Chronic Increased Afferent Nociceptive Input results in Chronic increased stress response and stress related dysfunction and disease susceptability in the host (this often takes place without conscious pain or symptoms)
