Researching Chiropractic: Case studies in Low Back Pain, GERD, Ear Infections, and Autism

Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our website and patient newsletter since its inception. There seems to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, or facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?

Probably most of them.

Please pass this along to anyone who might be dealing with, or have children suffering from:

  • Low back pain
  • GERD
  • Ear Inections
  • Autism

Low Back Paincase-studies-low-back-pain

Low back pain in an 8-year-old. The boy had been suffering from low back pain for two years. Various indicators for an upper cervical subluxation were found. The Blair upper cervical chiropractic technique was used to identify vertebral subluxations using specific radiographs. He received 5 months of chiropractic care using an upper cervical technique to correct the vertebral subluxation. He reported resolution of his middle and low back complaint. (1)

GERD and Chiropractic Carecase-studies-gerd

Improvement of GERD. A 37-year-old man had a two-year history of:

  • GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease)
  • mid-back (thoracic) pain
  • neck (cervical) and thoracic vertebral subluxations

When the patient began chiropractic care he received 12 spinal adjustments over the span of 3.5 months to specifically correct his cervical and thoracic vertebrae subluxations. He experienced a reduction in frequency of GERD symptoms and vertebral subluxations. He was able to maintain a less restrictive diet and remain asymptomatic and reported both quality of mental and physical health as improved and is currently satisfied with his condition. (2)

 Ear infection in a two-year-oldcase-studies-ear-infections

A 2-year-old girl was suffering from constant ear infections and fever. She started suffering when she was one month old, and since then had constant and regular antibiotics. When she came in for chiropractic care the MDs were recommending ear-tube surgery.

The goal of her chiropractic care was to assess, locate and reduce her vertebral subluxations so that her body would function closer to its optimum. After 36 visits, her otitis media was completely resolved, antibiotic use ceased and she never had ear-tube surgery. (3)

Autism and chiropractic case-studies-autism

Four children diagnosed with neurodevelopmental issues were given chiropractic care using techniques to specifically release stress on the brain and meningeal system. All four children showed measurable improvement not just in physical abilities but also in social engagement. (4)
