Researching Chiropractic: Disabled

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.

A U.S. military veteran had been suffering from severe low back and neck pain for the past 12 years. Due to his pain he was considered 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

During his six months of care the patient was continually re-evaluated as care progressed. The patient’s Lumbar Oswestry, Neck Disability Index, vitals, range of motion, orthopedic and neurological findings all improved under care. By this time, the patient was able to walk without assistance and regained the ability to perform many activities of daily living. (1)
