CEO of Sport and Spine Rehab and Kaizenovation Advisers, Jay Greenstein,DC, sat down last week with the Fox Medical team to discuss the events surrounding the tragic death of model, Katie May.
Katie May suffered from a stroke, caused by an arterial dissection. Before the stroke, she saw her chiropractor, which led the coroner to decide that the chiropractic adjustment is what led to her death.
The question that remains on many people’s minds, however, is did the chiropractic adjustment really cause the stroke? It’s possible, however, there is really no way to tell for sure. We simply do not know all of the facts. What we do know, however, is that there is a lot of evidence stating that the likelihood of a person suffering from an arterial dissection following a neck adjustment is extremely rare. In fact, studies show that in general, adjustments do not place enough strain on the vertebral artery to even cause a tear.
