Playboy model Katie May DID NOT DIE from a Chiropractic Adjustment:
Katie May passed away early this year from a CVA of the Carotid artery, which occurred from a traumatic fall she experienced while working on a photo shoot. As you may well know from the main-stream media, if you want a semblance of the truth, be sure you read all the initial reports of any event first, before the spin occurs. Such is the case with the unfortunate death of lovely Katie May, who visited her Chiropractor twice after this traumatic fall, not realizing that it was not her spine that was causing the pain she was experiencing, but a tear in the Carotid artery which was the result of her fall.
But all of a sudden…..POOF! All mention of that bad fall, what people close to her at the photo shoot called a “falling accident,” has disappeared. Pharmaceutical stooge and Moron peddling whatever he is paid to peddle, Dr. Oz, recently promoted a show on Katie May’s death and interviewed the family. All they said was Katie experienced “neck pain from a strained photo shoot,” from maintaining postures too long. Then they said she went to the Chiropractor and he killed her with an adjustment. Bad fall and serious blow to the neck and Carotid artery truth………ALL GONE!
HERE ARE THE FACTS:
- You will be hard pressed to find any mention of Katie’s fatal fall during her photo shoot right now, especially since the corrupt LA Coroner’s office issued a statement 7 months after Katie’s death that she died as the result of a Chiropractic Adjustment. Here is the initial report from February of 2016; http://www.tmz.com/2016/02/05/model-katie-may-stroke-fall-photo-shoot/
- Chiropractic hate-groups (shills for the pharma industry and AMA) have long attempted to prove a direct correlative relationship between Chiropractic neck adjustments and stroke: They are taking advantage of Katie May’s death here and it is simply disgusting. Let us start with the research as, even though the hate-groups tout a relationship between the two, doing basic research concludes that they are lying to the public to make everyone afraid of their Chiropractor. Read these research projects which proved no correlation; http://www.chiro.org/LINKS/ABSTRACTS/Risk_of_Vertebrobasilar_Stroke.shtml TO BOOT: “We found no evidence of excess risk of VBA stroke associated chiropractic care compared to primary care.”
- Katie May experienced a bad fall which created a serious blow to the front of her neck. The Carotid arteries are vulnerable to neck trauma that occurs to the front of the neck, and early eye witness reports say that she experienced a serious blow there. Even this very biased article, which is highly critical of Chiropractic adjustments from a bigoted standpoint, admits that Katie May had a bad fall and that the Carotid artery is very likely not affected by a neck adjustment: http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2016/02/08/did-chiropractic-manipulation-of-her-neck-cause-katie-mays-stroke/
- Studies for CVA related to Chiropractic neck adjustments have centered on problems occurring with the VERTEBRAL ARTERY, AND NOT THE CAROTID ARTERY. This is for obvious reasons. The Vertebral artery runs through the vertebrae, and the Carotid artery is located in the front of the neck under thick musculature called the SCM muscle group. One would have to be an incompetent Klingon or a Gorilla delivering a Chiropractic adjustment in order to even consider a neck adjustment adversely affecting the Carotid arteries.
- This particular page gives detailed information of scientific research favorable for the safety of Chiropractic neck adjustments and their relationship, if any, to CVA and stroke. http://www.chiro.org/LINKS/stroke.shtml The caveat which is always given is for the Chiropractor to perform a proper analysis before delivering the adjustment, considering first whether or not the patient has had a blow to the front of the neck which may have damaged the Carotid arteries. This, obviously is a very serious situation that needs to be monitored by an emergency medical facility.
- Hockey players have been known to damage their Carotid arteries by blows to the front of their necks repeatedly in the sports media. Many are removed from play and watched by hospitals for months until the Carotid arteries heal.
In conclusion, Katie May damaged her Carotid artery from a traumatic fall, NOT FROM A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT, and the main-stream media AND FAMILY OF KATIE MAY KNOW THIS TO BE TRUTH.
Whether or not the Chiropractor made a bad judgement call in not simply sending her to the emergency room is another story, but the CVA which killed her had nothing to do with the neck adjustment and everything to do with her fall. This is as well documented by research;
The recently published “Current Concepts: Spinal Manipulation and Cervical Arterial Incidents 2005” (NCMIC)  concludes in it’s Executive Summary:
“Unfortunately, opinion rather than fact has tended to dominate discussions regarding CVAs and chiropractic, even though there has been no definitive evidence that chiropractic adjustments (actually) cause strokes. This monograph notes that a causative relationship between chiropractic manipulation and stroke is unlikely. There is an associative relationship between the two because people may go to chiropractors for relief of stroke-related symptoms”.
No doubt, the Chiropractor will be sued and the truth will come out in the trial; his records should indicate what Katie told him about the fall she had, and how she had a hard blow to the neck, similar to what hockey players get when they are hit with a puck or stick in that area. Any decent Malpractice lawyer worth his weight in salt will bring these items up; whether or not the truth ever surfaces after a settlement is reached is questionable. In cutting a deal, the Chiropractor may also be silenced. But pharma-puppet idiots like Dr. Oz get to spew their twisted lies on national TV and never recant anything of which they speak.
