The TRUTH behind neck manipulation vs "Seen ON TV":

Here we go again... It happened on the Dr. Oz show.  In response to the information provided regarding having your neck manipulated and the risk of having a stroke,  the following link is worth your while to take a look at.   In summary, there is a LACK OF EVIDENCE linking manipulation of the neck and stroke.  Sure, steps are taken by the practitioner in order to assess each person to see if any risk factors for cardiovascular disease are noted, but this is part of the examination process in general! 

Shocking titles get great ratings for any media outlet!   What a disservice to the public.

Here is a link if you are interested.  There are more references to look at within the article.
