Title: Increased Telomere Length and Improvements in Dysautonomia, Quality of Life, and Neck and Back Pain Following Correction of Sagittal Cervical Alignment Using Chiropractic BioPhysics® Technique: a Case Study.
Conclusion: "The case suggests that correction of cervical lordosis and forward head postures by CBP® Mirror Image® methods improved the sagittal spinal alignment and posture and was temporally associated with lengthened telomeres, improved nocturnal polyuria, neck and mid-back pain, quality of life, and autonomic nervous system adaptability."
So ignoring the improvements to back and neck pain (which we know chiropractic is good at correcting), I wanted to focus on the increased Telomere length. Telomeres are the tails at the end of our DNA strands and are a biomarker of the health and aging of the cell, and its ability to reproduce. This case study suggests that Chiropractic can have an effect in improving DNA telomere length, which is improving health and aging at a cellular level. Quite ground breaking!
It is important to remember that this is a case study(1 person) and needs to be conducted now on a larger group of people. It is also important to note that how long this benefit lasts has not been measured. It may be temporary, or it may be permanent.
