Here are a few studies on how chiropractic care has helped with a wide range of health issues.
Chiropractic Care for a 10-year-old with an Ear Infection
This boy suffered from fluid-filled ears, allergies and sleep disturbances. He was prescribed Flonase® and Zyrtec® for his allergies. His parents brought him in for chiropractic care.
A chiropractic examination found a loss of normal neck curve, sacrum misalignment, and subluxations in the upper back (3rd thoracic or T3), lower (lumbar) spine and the base of the skull.
The child was adjusted at T3. His ear started draining immediately and continued draining for the next two days. After two weeks of care X-rays were retaken and showed restoration of normal neck curve and alignment of the sacrum and pelvis. The child’s otitis media resolved. (4)
Resolution of Raynaud’s Syndrome
A 29-year-old woman had been suffering from cold, stiff hands with discoloration for the previous 10 years as well as intermittent spinal stiffness.
She had subluxation-based chiropractic care for 11 weeks that added up to 15 visits. Both pre and post x-ray studies were utilized to show correction of abnormal curvature of the spine and pelvis.
After 15 visits, she had significant improved neurological function and symptom relief of Raynaud’s Syndrome. (5)
Stenosis and hand pain in a 74-year old woman.
A 74-year-old woman had been diagnosed with moderate neck (cervical) stenosis that was compressing the nerves going to her upper extremities. Her symptoms included inability to turn her head fully, and numbness, tingling and nerve pain down her left arm and into her 3rd, 4th and 5th fingers. She had been suffering from these symptoms for one year.
She began chiropractic care and subluxations were discovered at multiple spinal levels. She had 15 adjustments over an eight-week period. She reported less numbness and tingling in her left arm and an increased cervical range of motion (ability to turn her head). (7)
