1

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

2

What is the most accepted current concept of the Neurodystrophic/Neuroimmune Hypothesis?

modification of the Sympathetic nerve activity locally and globally (Sympatheticotonia)

3

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.

Reduce
Reduce
Enhance
Inhibit

4

T or F
Studies showed HVLA type of adjustments were associated with a Short-term Increase in production of TNF (TumorNecrosis Factor)

F
Decrease in TNF

** Subluxation may result in sustained production of TNF Alpha which is not normal

5

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)

6

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)

7

What is Chestnuts Foundational Premise #8

Chronic Decreased Afferent proprioceptive input results in less inhibition of nociception and decreased essential afferent input which coordinated homeostatic cognition, visceral function, movemnt, muscle tone and posture
