Can Chiropractic Help Improve Eyesight?

According the Journal Of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics a 25 year old woman underwent Chiropractic treatment for back pain; she was also suffering from glaucoma. After one visit to the Chiropractor the patient noticed an improvement in her eyesight. After four adjustments her visual field increased from %2 to %20. This sounds unbelievable, so how could this be so?

The Chiropractor manipulates and realigns the spinal column into correct alignment. This allows the nervous system to function properly and reduces any tension around the body. The nervous system regulates every cell of the body. Certain vertibrae contain nerves that lead to specific body areas and parts. For example, the Sympathetic chain” has nerves to the eyes, ears, and other sense organs. The second vertibrae from your scull affects the eyes, optic nerves, auditory nerves, sinuses, and other areas.

The only downside of Chiropractic is the price. However, the benefits could be priceless as the video below demonstrates.
