Pain Due to Structural Spinal Disorders falsely claims that “minute deviations from normal alignment and mobility of a single spinal segment may cause not only disabling back pain but may also interfere with the normal nerve supply of the part of the body and thereby affect the total health pattern of the individual. . . . It logically follows that when a misaligned vertebra pinches or irritates a nerve supplying any part of the body whether that part is a back muscle when a misaligned vertebra pinches or irritates a nerve supplying any part of the body, whether that part is a back muscle, a leg or a vital organ . . . stomach, kidney etc. that organ may suffer pain and loss of function.”

Your Child’s Posture and Health falsely suggests that “minor falls, strains, and daily incidents in the life of an active child is a major cause of childhood spinal disorders” that, if undetected and untreated “may develop into major disabilities.”
