Researching Chiropractic: Tremors, High BP, Upper Back Pain

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.

Improvement of a patient with essential tremors. Untitled design - 2021-11-09T130221.205

A 58-year-old woman with a 40-year history of diagnosed essential tremors (ET) without relief began chiropractic care. ET is the constant, rhythmic movement of a body part, usually the upper extremities or the head. In this case, the woman had ET in both arms. ET is 20 times more common than Parkinson’s Disease. There is no known cause or cure. In addition to the tremors, she suffered from headaches, mid and low back pain, hip pain, sciatic pain, brain fog, difficulty concentrating, and challenges with self-motivation.

She was found to have vertebral subluxation in her upper neck (upper cervical or C-1) spine. Chiropractic care addressed her C-1 subluxation.

She reported an 80% improvement of ET immediately after her first adjustment. Over a period of 4 months, she received 4 adjustments to her C-1 vertebra with 95% improvement of ET. In addition, her headaches were reduced by 95%. Her mid and low back pain improved by 80% with associated hip pain improving by 90% and a complete resolution of her sciatic pain. She also reported a 90% improvement in brain fog with an increased ability to concentrate and be self-motivated. (1)

High blood pressure, ringing in the ears, and arthritis. Untitled design - 2021-11-09T130251.223

A 72-year-old man with a history of hypertension (high blood pressure), arthritis, ringing/buzzing in the ears, and numbness/burning in his shoulder sought out chiropractic care. He was on blood pressure medication for one year prior to care. 

For the next three months, the patient received chiropractic analysis and correction (adjustment) of his vertebral subluxations. 

Over that period, his blood pressure decreased, he reported improvement in his arthritis, ringing/buzzing in the ear, and shoulder numbness/burning. A self-survey showed additional improvements in emotional/mental state, stress, and life enjoyment. (2)

Upper back pain, numbness, and “nerve feelings” in the hands (T-4 Syndrome). Untitled design - 2021-11-09T130320.222

A 64-year-old woman came in for care to a chiropractor’s office. The symptoms of those suffering from T-4 syndrome typically include upper thoracic (upper back) pain, and odd nerve feelings, and numbness in the hands. The cause appears to be from upper thoracic subluxation (T-4 stands for 4th thoracic vertebra). 

Chiropractic adjustments were administered to reduce vertebral subluxations; by the fifth visit, the patient reported complete remission of thoracic pain and hand numbness. (3)
