Brain stem dysfunction related to cervical manipulation
Report of three cases

June 1976 issue
26 (6) 547

Abstract

Three cases of brain stem dysfunction associated with cervical manipulation are reported. The patients exhibited a spectrum of neurologic deficits, ranging from minimal to severe. Literature concerning the relationship of neck movement and vertebrobasilar blood flow is reviewed and an explanation for the ischemia leading to dysfunction is proposed.
