There seems to be no end to the conditions that respond to chiropractic care – physical as well as psychological conditions.
That is because chiropractic does not “treat” a particular condition. Chiropractic care “corrects” a serious interference to the brain, nervous system, and energy function known as the subluxation.
No matter what condition you or a loved one may have, you and they will always function better when free from subluxations. Chiropractors are uniquely trained to locate and correct subluxations. Enjoy this month’s cases and see more next month.
A 24-year-old male with low back pain and food intolerances to wheat, garlic, onion, and dairy began chiropractic care. In the past, he had been hospitalized due to digestive issues, abdominal pain, bloated abdomen, excessive hunger, and depression.
Chiropractic analysis revealed subluxations at C1 and C5 (neck/cervical vertebrae). The patient had a series of corrections/adjustments. By his 9th visit, after three months of care, he had no more digestive issues and was able to eat foods that were previously deemed intolerant. In addition, his mood had also improved. (1)
Seizure Reduction in a Two-Year Old
A two-year-old boy with seizures, and hypotonia (weak muscles or lack of muscle tone), diagnosed with MMPSI (similar to infantile spasms) was brought in for chiropractic care. He was on numerous prescription drugs.
He was having 15-20 seizures per day and exhibiting poor eye gaze/tracking, arms flailing, screaming, and uncontrolled movements. He was not able to hold up his head, sit up, and vocalize.
Spinal and cranial examination revealed multiple areas of vertebral subluxation that were addressed (adjusted).
Over the 13-month period of being checked and adjusted for vertebral subluxation (22 office visits), there were significant improvements his quality of life and function. A 24-hour EEG reported ZERO seizures, and under the guidance of his primary care physician, he stopped all medications. (2)
Ear Surgery Scheduled for A Four-Year-Old
It is estimated that approximately 40% of children suffer from ear infections (otitis media or OM) before the age of five. OM is often recurrent, and pediatricians often put the suffering child on numerous antibiotic prescriptions and sometimes do ear surgery and put tubes in the child’s ears (which often fail).
In this case, a four-year-old boy with a history of failed ear-tube surgeries, and numerous ear infections was scheduled for yet another surgery. His parents decided to first bring him in for chiropractic care.
The chiropractor located vertebral subluxations and adjusted the child’s cervical and thoracic spine.
After the first adjustment, the child felt immediately better. He was also sleeping better and in a better mood. By the 3rd visit, the mother canceled her son’s scheduled surgery her child’s ear pain, fever, and hearing resolved. (3)
