The “Chiropractic Health Care” Pamphlet  claimed that “regular chiropractic examination and analysis of your body structure is an effective preventive means of maintaining health and eliminating the need for dangerous crisis sick care” and that “everyone alive can live longer, healthier lives with the help of chiropractic.”

The “Migraine” pamphlet claimed that chiropractic can provide permanent relief of symptoms by attacking their cause.

The “Blood Pressure” pamphlet claimed thatregular chiropractic care can “help keep your body functioning normally and keep your blood pressure within normal limits.”

These claims have no scientific support.
