Researching Chiropractic: Depression and Anxiety, paralysis, and Diabetes
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.
Depression and Anxiety
A 30-year-old woman who had a clinical diagnosis of depression and anxiety presented for chiropractic care. She was analyzed using x-ray and heat scanning for subluxations and adjusted where and when needed.
Her depression and anxiety resolved. Her sleep, energy and quality of life improved and she was able to cease taking medications. Her spinal imbalance, neck curve and overall nervous system imbalance greatly reduced. (1)
Dogs with hind end paralysis
24 dogs with hind end paralysis and inability to walk were found to have intervertebral disc disease by their veterinarian. Rather than have an MRI to be followed by surgery, the owners wanted to explore a different route. Each dog was evaluated and adjusted using chiropractic techniques approved by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association.
Each dog eventually regained the ability to walk. The amount of time needed to recover varied by the severity of the spinal damage in each dog. (2)
Diabetes and mid-back pain
A 26-year-old man with chronic mid-back pain for 9 years and type 1 diabetes mellitus began chiropractic care. X-ray and MRI imaging revealed flattening of the curve of the mid-back (hypokyphosis of the thoracic spine) with spinal misalignment consistent with vertebral subluxations.
The patient reported improvement in his mid-back pain and quality of life. X-rays showed normal mid-back curve. Glucose monitoring showed a dramatic drop in blood glucose immediately after each visit. The patient reported he reduced his insulin by half during chiropractic care. (3)
