Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our 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, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?
Probably most of them.
A 13-month-old baby boy with otitis media had been born premature and delivered through cesarean section with a vacuum used for extraction. At birth his blood contained opiates, methamphetamine and other amphetamines. He had been experiencing bouts of otitis media since three months of age and had previously been managed by medical doctors with rounds of antibiotics and nasal saline.
Chiropractic analysis revealed subluxations in the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacroiliac regions. The boy was checked and adjusted where vertebral subluxations were found and corrected. His mother reported that his otitis media resolved the following week. He continues regular chiropractic care and has not been on any antibiotics since 13-months of age. (1)
A 24-year-old woman began chiropractic care with a chief complaint of back pain and a 3.5-year history of infertility. She had infrequent progesterone-induced menstrual cycles.
Physical examination showed postural abnormalities, paraspinal muscular tenderness, myospasm and vertebral subluxations. She was managed for vertebral subluxations through specific chiropractic care. By the ninth visit she had her first normal menstrual cycle since the start of chiropractic care and by the twelfth visit she was pregnant. (2)
