BMC pregnancy and childbirth

BACKGROUND: A longitudinal repeated measures design over pregnancy and post-birth, with a control group would provide insight into the mechanical adaptations of the body under conditions of changing load during a common female human lifespan condition, while minimizing the influences of inter human differences.

OBJECTIVE: To perform three-dimensional (3-D) manual contact force measurements of chiropractic adjustments at the patient-chiropractor interface. METHODS: A new hand/palm-held computerized 3-D force measuring system was used to collect 3-D force data at the doctor-patient interface (direct measurement) during cervical, thoracic, and sacroiliac adjustments by 2 chiropractors on 10 healthy subjects. RESULTS: 3-D components of force were significantly greater than matching 1-dimensional (1-D) perpendicular force components, which have been the standard in direct measurement up until now.

The effects of acupuncture stimulation to the sacral segment on the electroencephalogram (EEG) and activity of the cholinergic neurons in the laterodorsal tegmental nucleus (LDT) were examined in urethane-anesthetized rats. When EEG was small amplitude and higher frequency, the stimulation to the sacral segment induced large amplitude and slow EEG with latencies ranged from 45 sec to 12 min, and durations from 48 sec to 56 min. The stimulus induced EEG is composed of significant increase in delta power and significant decrease in theta and beta powers.
