We the undersigned, make a Global appeal to all Presidents, Prime Ministers, Congressmen & Ministers for Health in all countries, to introduce and support a legislation warning the public about the serious dangers of neck manipulation by Chiropractors, Osteopaths and Barbers. Such manipulations could result in a stroke & place a patients life at risk.

The medical profession, especially neurologists have been very active globally in pointing out that neck manipulations can sometimes result in a brain stem stroke caused by damaging the vertebral or carotid arteries or both.

The VAD Club is made up of lucky survivors of Vertebral and Carotid Artery Dissections. Such dissections are caused by a variety of factors, one of which is Chiropractic manipulation of the neck, the dangers of which warrant patients being forewarned.

Any legislated warning will arm a patient with sufficient information as to the risks of any manipulations of the neck area and avoid a possible accident that could lead to a stroke.

We are not suggesting that neck manipulations will always cause a stroke.

We are saying that Neck Manipulation can sometimes cause a stroke, also known these days as a brain attack, requiring the public to be cautioned by practitioners before they perform any neck manipulation to ease neck pain or migraine head aches.

Similar to all cigarette packs carrying Government Health Warnings like

" SMOKING CAN CAUSE CANCER"

" SMOKING WHEN PREGNANT HARMS YOUR BABY "

we would like to see a warning displayed prominently in all Chiropractor's Offices and Treatment rooms which says

Government Health Warning
" NECK MANIPULATION CAN SOMETIMES CAUSE A STROKE"

    • I am most concerned that MJB SEMINARS in Perth/Melbourne/Sydney-Australia is performing neck manipulations(they call "BETA BALANCE/BETA RELEASE") on all participants who attend their "Student Teacher Prophet" Seminars. They "teach" their followers to do neck manipulations, and send them out to set up their own businesses, where this so called "therapy" is offered in return for payment. It is recommended that people have multiple sessions of BEAT RELEASE and it is promoted with a mix of pesudo science and spiritual rubbish. They even claim it "stretches the brain" see below the cut and pasted article from the MJB SEMINARS website: __________________________________________________________: BETA RELEASE: We most often start Beta release because of what it does for our body. We continue because of what it does for our life. Beta release is a holistic health treatment which recognises stress as the major contributor to most health challenges. Rather than treating a symptom or trying to fix a specific problem, a Beta release alignment resets all the systems in the body, much like rebooting a computer. It is done by stretching the brain and central nervous system, pulling the left and right lobes of the brain into balance. Regular Beta release treatments: • Bring you to an immediate state of balance, connectedness, love and gratitude. • Balance the left and right lobes of your brain to allow your body’s natural energy to flow freely. • Reconnect you with your intuition and power so you can take charge of your life. ___________________________________________________________ VERY DECEPTIVE, VERY DANGEROUS!

    • My amazing virile husband suffered a Wallenberg stroke after having neck manipulation...just 12 hours before. He went from a very active, athletic individual to a sedentary, dizzy, and unable to participate in activities he loves! He was only 44....

    • How we wish our schools had taught us a bit of human anatomy and physiology. How we wish we had known about the arteries in our neck. Had we known we wouldn't be wobbling all over the place like drunks or see everything double, drool or choke on our own saliva, suffer chronic pain all day long or be stuck in wheel chairs for life. If only we had known how important it is to CARE FOR THE NECK, if only. Posted on behalf of Members of the VAD Club especially my good friend Dave Mac, USA whose life has turned into a nightmare after a neck manipulation.
