Visceral afferent nerve impulses reflexively cause somatic problems through the mechanism of anterior horn facilitation describes which hypothesis?

Viscerosomatic reflex


The subluxation can lead to lowered tissue resistance and compromise the body's ability to adapt to microorganisms describes which hypothesis?

Neurodystrophic/neuroimmune hypothesis


The subluxation can involve facilitation of lateral horn cells, leading to visceral dysfunction via altered sympathetic innervation describes which hypothesis?

Somatoautonomic/somatomotor reflex hypothesis


Distortion of the intervertebral foramen causes mechanical compression, stretch, traction, or torsion of spinal nerves or nerve roots with subsequent injury and dysfunction describes which hypothesis?

Nerve compression hypothesis


Articular alterations and nociceptive signals rom sublimated motion segments cause dysafferentation to the spinal cord, disruption normal postural muscle tone, and reflexively disturbing other somatic functions as well describes which hypothesis?

Somatosomatic/somatomotor reflex hypothesis


Neurotrophic support can be adversely affected by the disruption of axoplasmic transport mechanisms describes which hypothesis?

Axoplasmic aberration hypothesis


Cervical subluxations can cause vascular insufficiency to the brain by direct arterial compression describes which hypothesis?

Vertebrobasilar arterial insufficiency hypothesis


Subluxations can affect mental state and emotions describes which hypothesis?

Somatopsychic hypothesis


Mental stress can cause subluxations through postural changes, diaphragm tension, and other neurologic effects describes which hypothesis?

Psychogenic hypothesis


Upper cervical misalignments can cause stress to the spinal cord describes which hypothesis?

Spinal cord compression/myelopathy hypothesis
