According to the March 3, 1994 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, Stewart Lipton shows that an increased amount of glutamate in the brain is the primary cause of neuro-degeneration because glutamate destroys neurons.  In order to pump the glutamate into the astrocyte cells in order for it to be removed from the body there must be adequate ATP pumps and ATP.  Therefore, increased amounts of ATP will stop and reduce neuro-degeneration. the Nov-Dec 2011 Journal of Alternative and Therapeutic Medicine study proves a Chiropractic adjustment increases blood flow oxygen, glucose utilization, and ATP.
