How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care? Probably most of them.
A 57-year-old woman complaining of sudden blackouts (fainting) was diagnosed with “vasovagal syncope” (VVS), a sudden, brief, temporary loss of consciousness (LOC).
She also had constant neck pain primarily on the right and inability to turn her head fully to the right.
She had tried prescribed medication and her MD recommended surgically implanting a pacemaker to regulate her nerve function. She refused.
Chiropractic examination and X-ray analysis revealed vertebral subluxations of the upper neck or cervical vertebrae (C1 and C2).
Her VVS completely disappeared and never returned after her first visit. By her fourth visit her neck pain and limited range of motion greatly diminished.
