Case Study Reports Teenager Experiences Relief from Clinical Depression After Receiving Chiropractic Care

A case study discusses the results of chiropractic care of a 16-year old female who presented for care with a history of clinical depression, neck, and upper shoulder pain as published in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal, and Family Health. The patient received chiropractic care to evaluate and correct vertebral subluxations. After 12 visits, her symptoms of depression and pain resolved. This study provides supporting evidence that adolescents with similar complaints may benefit from chiropractic care. How can chiropractic provide an effect to our mental wellbeing by correcting a subluxation in the spine? It all traces back to the neurological system. Recall that the spine sends information up to the brain. When those signals are improved, the brain’s function and chemistry changes. Remember, your spine is your lifeline. The better it functions, the global impact it has on your body’s...

Lung Functions, Dysautonomia and Grip Strength in Multiple Sclerosis Following Adjustment of Vertebral Subluxation

A case study and review of scientific literature published in the Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research in August 2016 discusses the results of chiropractic care of a 58-year old female who is wheel chair bound due to the effects of multiple sclerosis (MS) as diagnosed by her medical doctors. MS affects 400,000 people in US and over 2 million worldwide. The National MS Society states that it is the most common non-traumatic disabling neurogenic disease among young adults. In multiple sclerosis, it is appears as though the immune system begins to cause deterioration of the outer covering the nerves. Nerves are what connect everything in our bodies to our brains, so the brain can perceive the body, see how it needs to make a change, and use the nerves to communicate with other areas of the body to coordinate function for adaptation and health. This 58-year old woman underwent a chiropractic evaluation to first assess function through utilizing X-ray analysis, thermographic (heat) studies of the spine, analysis of lung function through spirometry and analysis of motor control using grip strength of upper extremities. It was revealed that deviated from normal with a shift, she had asymmetrical heat patterns indicating disruption of the autonomic nervous system, restrictions in the spirometry readings – including peak expiratory lung volume and forced expiratory lung volume, and weaknesses in her grip strength of hands. Vertebral subluxations were located and adjusted in order to remove stress and interference from the nervous system. Progress evaluation was performed and the woman had shown improvements in all areas previously measured including posture, lung function, balance in nervous system. The successful care of someone with multiple sclerosis is described in this article. This study provides supporting evidence that individuals suffering with multiple sclerosis or similar neurodegenerative complaints may benefit from natural chiropractic care. The purpose of chiropractic care is to locate and correct subluxations in order to enhance overall function, adaption and health of the body. The article goes into more length describing increased stress on the nervous system results in the following: increased tension of the spinal cord includes irritation in what is called somatosensory evoked potentials (signals between brain and body), neurogenic motor evoked potentials, and changes in cellular physiology such as mitochondrial oxidative metabolism, and the blood supply to the spinal cord, brainstem and cranial nerves. Yet, another article showing why care of you and your loved ones is so important. Again, the purpose of chiropractic is not to treat or cure any ailment, disease, pain, etc, but to enhance overall function, adaptability and health of the...

Inspiring Case Study: Child’s Chronic Ear Infections Resolve Following Chiropractic Adjustments

Chronic Otitis Media, Failed Tympanostomy Tube Surgery & Resolution Following Adjustment of Vertebral Subluxation A case study discusses the results of chiropractic care of a four-year old male presented for care with a history of failed tympanostomy tube (ear tube) surgery, as published in the Journal of Maternal and Family Health.  A 4-year old male presented to a chiropractic office with a history of failed tympanostomy surgery.  The child was scheduled for repeat tympanostomy surgery. Vertebral subluxations were found and adjusted in the cervical and thoracic spine. It is estimated that 40% of children suffer from otitis media (ear infection) before the age of 5. Direct and indirect costs of otitis media totaled 3 billion dollars in the year it was studied. The patient’s subluxations were adjusted using the Activator hand held adjusting instrument. On the third visit, the patient’s mother opted out of her son’s scheduled surgery.  The patient attended care with the recommended frequency at 2-3 times for the first two weeks, followed by once a week for eight weeks, for a duration of 12 weeks. The successful chiropractic care of a child with chronic ear infections is described. This study provides supporting evidence that children with similar complaints may benefit from chiropractic...

It’s a little bit of Heaven every visit!

I had back and leg pain attributed to sciatica for several weeks. Pain kept me from many things, including getting a good night’s sleep. Chiropractic took away the pain, helped me to sleep better, to breathe better, to walk taller and to be in a happier frame of mind. I can now sit on the floor and play with my 4 lively granddaughters. I can sleep all night. I can walk without limping or hurting. I’m not taking pain relievers. I just love going into the office! Great music, happy greetings, positive outlooks, little kids being adorable, smiling staff; it’s a little bit of Heaven every visit. I love the positive affirmations, the decorations, and the pictures, too....
