Chiropractic Principles

  1. The axis of rotation of the thoracic vertebra passes through:
    The body of the vertebra
  2. A recurrent spinal, nerve passes through the intervertebral foramen for distribution to:
    The blood vessels and meninges of the cord
  3. Areas of the spine are predisposed to subluxation when:
    They are apices of transitions of compensatory distortions
  4. The apices of the normal A-P curves of the spine are:
    the third lumbar, fifth and sixth thoracics, and fourth cervical
  5. One reason for occupation predisposition of the vertebral column to subluxation in some area is:
    The asymmetry development of muscle
  6. Sacroiliac subluxation can disturb sympathetic function by:
    reflex connection of afferent fibers with lumbar lateral horn cells
  7. The sacral parasympathetic overflow may be disturbed by a sacral distortion by:
    reflex action of afferent fibers with the sacral parasympathetic fibers
  8. The fixation of the subluxation may disturb neuromere function by:
    interfering with venous drainage
  9. The viscerosomatic reflex of a nephroptosis is likely to cause recurrent subluxation of
    the 11th and 12th thoracic or 1st lumbar
  10. Authorities have demonstrated that pathogenic organisms seldom damage healthy tissue, and the chiropractor contends that subluxations:
    may through the sympathetic control of arteries cause ischemia with lowered resistance.
  11. Irritation of the pain fibers of the trigeminal nerve may cause a subluxation of:
    An upper cervical vertebrae
  12. hypoglycemia causes the nervous system to be:
  13. The initial response of the nervous system to fatigue is:
    increased irritability
  14. Alteration from optimum blood glucose content and effects of fatigue appear to influence first:
    the cyton of the neuron
  15. a subluxation may serve as a somatopsychic disturbance because:
    the discomfort provides a basis for neurosis
  16. psychogenic muscle tension most frequently causes:
    upper cervical subluxations
  17. chronic diaphramatic tension most frequently results from:
    a psychogenic irritation
  18. a psychovisceral reflex may:
    cause visceral dysfunction
  19. Anoxia of the spinal cord causes detrimental effects first upon:
    the connector neurons
  20. the posterior boundary of a typical intervetebral foramen is formed by:
    the articular processes
  21. the postvertebral muscles are supplied with motor nerve impulses by:
    the posterior primary rami of spinal nerves.
  22. the postvertebral muscles which have segmented characteristics of embryonic development are:
    the deepest and shortest
  23. besides x-ray, the most frequently used method  of detecting subluxations by chiropractors is by:
  24. the most consistent subjective symptom of a subluxation is:
  25. chronicity of subluxation can be recognized by the chiropractor by:
    the texture of the tissue
  26. chronic subluxations may be detected on palpation by:
    change of texture to the skin
  27. the irritation of a subluxation causes some of the muscles that move the vertebral segment to by hypertonic, which may be called
  28. the vasomotor disturbances of the neuromere that usually accompany subluxations are caused by:
    a reflex response
  29. the majority of the cells of the central gray matter of a neuromere receive their arterial blood by an arteriole from:
    the anterior spinal artery
  30. when "hiccups" do not respond to mid-cervical adjusting, the chiropractor should examine next for a subluxation:
    of the lower six thoracic area
  31. D.D. Palmer claimed that the vertebra most frequently subluxated was:
    the twelfth thoracic
  32. the response of viscera to parasympathetic impulses may be modified by subluxations:
    of a sacroiliac articulation
  33. the one glandular structure which receives preganglionic sympathetic innervation is:
    the medulla of the adrenal
  34. a single preganglionic sympathetic fiber may synapse with:
    two to seventeen postganglionic neurons
  35. a subluxation of one of the first four thoracic vertebrae may disturb function of:
    any structure above the diaphragm
