*This pains me deeply. Until I found a chiropractor who proved himself to me, I was against all of them. I had visited a chiropractor in Studio City, California once. The office he worked out of had a huge display on Cahuenga Blvd. I went in one day, and I swear, I left out in more pain than when I entered. Because of this, it took years before I had the courage to visit another; and only after I saw the excellent results of someone I knew, following her visit to the new guy.
So when I hear that someone, in this case a woman who happened to be a Playboy model, losing her life, following a visit to a chiropractor, it breaks my heart.
I want to let you know that not every chiropractor is worthy of the license. It’s best if you get a referral from someone you trust.
On Tuesday, TMZ reported that model Katie May died from a fatal tear to an artery in her neck after she visited her chiropractor.
A death certificate obtained by the media outlet states the late Playboy model and “Queen of Snapchat” died as a result of “neck manipulation by chiropractor” that tore her vertebral artery and subsequently cut off blood flow to her brain. Her death was ruled accidental, although it’s not known if the model’s family will pursue further action against the chiropractor.
May, 34, passed away in February suffering a stroke due to blockage in her carotid artery. I suppose the results of an autopsy were just recently revealed.
According to a Huffington Post article, May had actually fallen during a photoshoot in February, and that was the reason she visited the chiropractor in the first place.
May leaves behind a young daughter who was the love of her life. She often spoke of her on Snapchat, to her 2-million followers.
“I had the most important person in my world, my daughter, to make proud each day and to remind me what I was working towards,” May said in an interview in January. “Failure was not an option, not putting her in the best school was not an option, not living the lifestyle that I had dreamed of for us was not an option.”
