RESEARCH SUMMARY

Dr. Elster completed a preliminary study of 10 Parkinson's patients in 1999 (see research articles below). By 2007, approximately 60 patients have been examined and treated by Dr. Elster using specific IUCCA upper cervical care. All patients showed evidence of trauma-induced upper cervical injuries during examination (upper cervical radiographs and digital infrared imaging). Many patients recalled specific incidences of trauma (auto accidents, falls, concussions, whiplashes) while some did not. Some traumas had occurred more than 10 years (even as many as 40 years) prior to the onset of Parkinson's symptoms. Even if a patient did not recall experiencing an accident or trauma to his or her neck, upper cervical injuries were found in 100% of cases examined.
