Shaun Cashman, SOT Chiropractic Researcher


 With Deepest Condolences

It is with deep sadness I wish to inform all of Shaun Cashman's passing. He was a research clinician who was studying the relationship between body temperature findings and trapezius fibre relationships. He had recently had his research accepted at the 2016 ACC RAC Conferences which related to interexaminer and intraexaminer reliability of trapezius fibre diganosis.

He was a very dear soul, dedicated to helping humanity in a humble selfless manner. He has left his wife, children and SOT family much much too soon..

The following is a very interesting systematic review and meta-analysis article written by a group of neurosurgeons: They concluded that "there is no convincing evidence to support a causal link, and unfounded belief in causation may have dire consequences."
