Chiropractic Case Study: Blindness

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.

Resolution of blindness in an 18-year-old.  blindness

An 18-year-old woman was complaining of migraines; seizures; mid-back, neck and low back pain; shoulder pain and numbness and tingling in both arms and into her left leg and foot. She had suffered a stroke four years prior and had brain surgery. Immediately following the surgery, she reported blurry vision and a loss of the lateral portion of the visual field of her left eye which continued to diminish before becoming completely blind. She suffered from migraines and seizures as well.

Immediately after the adjustment was given the patient reported seeing “sparkles” in the left eye. She was left to rest on the table. After approximately 15 minutes of rest, the patient experienced a full resolution of the vision loss in her left eye.

After 11 weeks care her eyesight was still intact and her migraines and seizures reduced in frequency and severity. Her neck and back pain resolved and her arm and foot symptoms continue to improve.
