Chiropractic Adjustments shown to Improve Vision and Eye Health

May 22, 2014

Many peer reviewed journals and case studies show that chiropractic adjustments can help improve vision and eye health, especially for those who also have subluxations in the neck area. For those tested, improvement was seen in their vision, pupil size, eye pressure and motor function.


A research team composed of a well-known chiropractic doctor and an ophthalmologist has studied this phenomenon extensively and can attribute it to the eye’s blood supply. The nervous system is protected by the vertebrae of the spine, so if the neck area has subluxations, this can cause nerve interference. Since the vertebral arteries are also affected, this interference can cause restricted blood flow or a lack of oxygen in the blood supply to the eye. Known as ischemia, the restricted blood supply does not kill the cells that form the eye, but it does cause problems with their function.

When a doctor of chiropractic adjusts the vertebrae of the neck area to remove subluxations, this releases the pressure on the vertebral arteries and helps restore blood supply and oxygen to the eyes. The relief from nerve interference goes beyond pain relief; it also improves circulation and allows the cells and organs to function properly.

It’s important to note that chiropractic care is not a cure for blindness or other eye diseases, but when used in conjunction with your eye health provider’s treatments, chiropractic adjustments can remove subluxations that are interfering with proper eye function.

Here’s the bottom line in chiropractic care — if you’re alive and have subluxations in the neck area, you’re better off alive without them.
