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.
Two female patients, ages 28 and 37, each with a history of infertility came to their chiropractor for care. Both also had a history of motor vehicle accidents.
Both patients had cervical (neck) subluxations that were corrected. They were then able to conceive and deliver naturally.
The first patient’s menstrual cycle irregularity returned to normal after which she was able to conceive. The second patient was able to conceive without the use of assisted reproductive treatments for the first time. (1)
A 33-year-old pregnant woman suffered from Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): a spinning sensation when she changed head position. She was prescribed medication, but refused to take it because she was nursing.
She began care during her most severe BPPV episode. She was unable to drive herself to appointments. Spinal and cranial adjusting techniques were administered and within three visits the symptoms had diminished to the point that she was able to drive herself to her visits. By the 14th visit she reported being symptom-free. (2)
Asthma and Headaches
A 15-year-old male presented with chief complaints of asthma and headaches. The patient was under specific chiropractic care and analysis utilizing static radiology, videofluoroscopy, infrared thermography and high frequency pulsating instrumentation. Symptoms of asthma and headaches resolved following care. (3)
