  Title The vertebral subluxation premise: Principle 2, the somatic vertebrogenic element
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2023 Oct-Dec;4(2):26
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Narrative: This is the third of a 6-paper series which presents a descriptive narrative of the Western medical literature to identify and report evidence for each of the five principles of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC) premise as established in 1947 by Janse, Houser, and Wells (National College of Chiropractic). This literature is additional to that from the chiropractic perspective which is available in the electronic Index to Chiropractic Literature.

The first paper, in two parts, introduced the series and gave evidence for Principle One that ‘a vertebrae may subluxate’. This third paper presents the evidence for Principle Two by documenting the evidence for the factors associated with the somatic vertebrogenic element.

This 6-part series describes the incontrovertible acknowledgement and weight of recognition of the effect of physical, biomechanical, and physiological vertebral disturbances collectively contributing to the VSC and demonstrates strong support of the chiropractic nomenclature, neurophysiological and clinical implications of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex as recorded in the medical literature.
