Researching Chiropractic: Rheumatoid Arthritis & Parkinson’s Disease

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 positively to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, reliant on medication and drugs, and facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?

Probably most of them.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a condition that affects a 28-year-old woman. 

It is classified as a disorder with an unknown cause and is considered to be incurable. Apart from RA, she also experienced symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, dizziness, pain in the toes, and occasional double vision. To manage her symptoms, she was taking 500mg of NaproxenT multiple times a day and using moist heat on the affected joint.

After receiving care for 12 weeks, she no longer needed to take the prescription medications Methotrexate or Naproxen for her joint pain. Her symptoms of fatigue, swollen and painful joints, difficulty sleeping, headaches, dizziness, blurred or double vision, chest pain, frequent colds or flu, and digestive problems had significantly decreased.

At the time of this case study, she continues to receive care for her condition. (1)

A woman who is 58 years old is dealing with Parkinson’s disease. She experiences tremors in her right hand at rest, weakness in her right arm, and sluggish body movements. The diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease was made one year before she started chiropractic care.

Over one year of care, she has seen significant improvements. Her muscle strength has increased, her range of motion in her neck has improved, and her neck and upper back muscles have become more relaxed. She has also noticed improvements in her resting tremors, bradykinesia (slowness of movement), and weakness in her right arm. As a result, she has resumed daily walks for exercise. (2)
