A child with headaches, autism, ADHD and OCD11 boy

An 11-year-old boy diagnosed with autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and headaches affecting his school attendance and sleep was brought in for chiropractic care. 

A chiropractic analysis showed that he had subluxations in his left hip, sacrum, occiput (back of the skull) and neck and mid back vertebral subluxations (C1, C2 and T8).

The boy’s subluxations and structural distortions were addressed. His headache symptoms improved as did his behavioral problems and his quality of life. (1) 

Meniere’s Disease55 man

A 55-year-old man had been diagnosed with Meniere’s disease. He was experiencing constant dizziness, occasional vertigo (sensation of spinning), earache, ear noise and occasional deafness. His symptoms continued to worsen over eight years.

The patient was evaluated using chiropractic methods and found to have a subluxation in his upper neck (C1 vertebral subluxation).

He had his first chiropractic visit and adjustment and had an immediate improvement. After two weeks his condition completely resolved. (2)

Chronic migraines, pins-and-needles and disability35 man

A 35-year old man with a history of sports injuries presented himself at a chiropractic clinic. His complaints included neck pain and stiffness, pins and needles into his left shoulder, low back pain and difficulty sleeping. The patient had a previous history of chronic headaches and migraines.

Over an eight-week period he received 24 chiropractic adjustments for vertebral subluxation correction. In addition to resolution of his pain, the patient-centered outcome assessments revealed improved physical, social and psychological functioning and decreased disability. There were improvements in cervical curve and reduction of anterior head carriage. (4) 

Pubic pain in a pregnant womanpregnant case study

A 28-year-old who was in her 20th week of pregnancy was suffering from symphysis pubic dysfunction. The pubic bones are in front of the pelvis. She was experiencing pain at the pubic bone region and in both inner thighs for the prior three months. 

She had one previous pregnancy and had experienced mild pubic pain, but with this pregnancy the pain was much worse. 

Her spine and structural system were analyzed using chiropractic procedures. Her upper neck vertebra (C1), coccyx (tail bone) and right inferior pubic bone were found to be subluxated. All were corrected using chiropractic techniques and after three visits her pain abated and she had full mobility. She felt fine during the rest of her pregnancy and delivered a healthy baby boy. After birth (postpartum), she reported greater comfort while walking. (5)

Non-vaccinated Children Are Healthier

New research reveals that non-vaccinated children are healthier than non-vaccinated childrenvaccinated children.

Put another way, vaccinated children are sicker than non-vaccinated children.

This peer-reviewed study was released online very recently. The study had been reviewed and accepted by two different journals, but both journals pulled back on their approval once the political implications of the findings became clear.

The study found that vaccinated children were much more likely than non-vaccinated children to be diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder such as autism (4.7 times more) as well as ADHD (4.7 fold higher) and learning disabilities (3.7 fold higher). Also, fever was over 30 times higher in vaccinated children, while the risk of other allergies was increased as well. Vaccinated children were 22 times more likely to require allergy medication and had more than four times more learning disabilities than non-vaccinated children. In addition, vaccinated children were2½ times more likely to be diagnosed with a chronic illness than non-vaccinated children.

Bilateral sciatica in a 77-year-old man.Older man's hands crossed holing a walking stick

The patient was examined for the presence of vertebral subluxation complex using infrared thermography, radiography and video fluoroscopy. Vertebral subluxations and a deviated sacrum were located. After 1½ months of care there was a marked reduction in sciatica symptoms.

Two children with neurodevelopmental issues.

Case 1: An 11-year-old girl with ADHD.young girl in front of tree

She had difficulties with reading comprehension, handwriting and mathematics. Since beginning chiropractic care, her social interaction and emotional state improved. By her 23rdvisit she was in the A range and selected to be tested for the honors program.

Case 2: Developmental delays in crawling and walking in a 13-month-old girl.

The mother described the child’s crawling as a ‘scooting’ motion since the patient’s buttocks remained in contact with the ground. She also was not standing on her own or trying to walk. After four adjustments, she was crawling normally, had taken four steps unassisted, and had not performed the scooting motion since the second visit.

He also complained of occasional headaches and acid reflux. Over an eight-month period the SF-36 general health survey demonstrated significant improvement particularly in the areas of General Health, Mental Health, and Mental Component Summary with improvements in fatigue and malaise.
