Researching Chiropractic: Piglets, Down Syndrome, Low Back Pain

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, and facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?

Probably most of them.

Piglets and chiropractic.

Chiropractic for piglets?  Why not? Every creature with a spinal column can have subluxations and can benefit from chiropractic care. There are many chiropractors who regularly work on dogs, cats, horses, and other creatures. 

In this study, researchers measured the rate of weight gain in baby pigs. 109 piglets that were weaned on the same day were captured and randomly assigned into a control (CON) or an adjusted (ADJ) group. 

It was found that on average the adjusted group reached the ideal weight 6 days sooner than the control (non-adjusted) group. Feed costs for the adjusted group were thus reduced. (1) 

P.S. An earlier study with chickens showed chiropractic adjustments improved palatability, overall health, and rate of weight gain. Again, something that could cut costs and increase profits. (2)

These studies show the positive effects of animal chiropractic in livestock production settings. 

Down Syndrome in a 7-week-old infant. 

A seven-week-old girl with Down Syndrome was brought in for chiropractic care because of nursing and sleeping issues. Typically, the infant was brought to the clinic when she was having cough, congestion, tactile fremitus (a vibration transmitted through the body), and wheezing problems.

A chiropractic examination revealed that she had upper cervical, thoracic and sacrum subluxations. Her subluxations were adjusted using various chiropractic techniques. 

After the adjustment, the mother reported that the infant was getting stronger, had less congestion, was breathing with fewer wheezes, and her chest was cleaner. The parents reported feeling less fremitus on her chest than before.

The patient had constipation for three days when she was brought in for care. The infant defecated right after the adjustment. 

After 3 visits the baby’s feeding and sleeping issues were resolved. The child continued chiropractic care. After 2 years and 7 months of care, her muscle tone, breathing, and immune function were enhanced. 

The mother reported that chiropractic care helped to increase the infant’s daily function and overall health such as latching and regular sleep patterns. (3)

Low Back pain in a 9-year-old with tethered cord syndrome.

A 9-year-old boy entered the office complaining of a dull, achy low back pain that occurred during football practicing and playing. He had a decreased range of motion and vertebral subluxations. X-rays revealed he had an extra lumbar vertebra (6 instead of 5).

The child had an MRI that revealed a condition known as spinal cord tethering. His spinal abnormalities included lower spinal cord and malformations.

The boy received chiropractic adjustments twice a week for 3 weeks and then once per week for 6 weeks. He was also given stretching and exercises to be done at home.  At the one-year follow-up, the patient was able to play several high school sports without any complications. (4)

Researching Chiropractic: Brain Function, Fibromyalgia, Birth

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, or facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?

Probably most of them.

Chiropractic improves brain function in children. 

Thirty-seven pediatric patients with neurological disorders were enrolled in a chiropractic clinic to see if subluxation correction would influence their brain function measured by improved processing, engagement, learning, and connection to the surroundings. In addition, primitive reflexes, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, auditory verbal skills, eye movement, and visual cognitive skills were evaluated. 

Learning included ease of completing homework, ability to concentrate on a task/goal, handwriting, reading comprehension, organization/planning, spelling, understanding concepts, vocabulary and expression, attention/focus, and participation in extracurricular activities,

Vertebral subluxations when found at specific spinal segments were adjusted. During care, patient outcomes were measured via both objective and subjective measurements.

There was an improvement of 74.1% in quality of life measured by parent surveys in all measured areas such as intra/interpersonal skills outcomes, feelings about school, relationships with peers, mood, anxiety, rigidity/demand for sameness, family relationships, loss of temper/emotional outbursts, and ability to self-regulate emotions. 

There was also steady improvement in getting to sleep, quality of sleep, amount of sleep, eating habits, digestive health overall, frequency of bowel movements, and energy levels. (1)

Fibromyalgia in a 64-year-old woman. 

The patient was a 64-year-old woman diagnosed with fibromyalgia diagnosed 6 years prior. She also complained of sleep apnea, loss of coordination, glaucoma, degenerative disc disease, and changes in bowel habits. 

An upper cervical (upper neck) subluxation was determined using X-rays and other forms of analysis. 

The patient received chiropractic care for three months and by then had 80% relief of symptoms and an improvement in energy. (2)

Vaginal birth after cesarean section.

The patient is 40-year-old woman 33 weeks pregnant with her third child. She had two prior cesarean sections due to malposition of the fetus, deceleration of heart rate during labor, and Pitocin intolerance. 

Vertebral subluxations that decreased her pelvis and spinal range of motion, abnormal posture, and muscle spasms were observed during the chiropractic examination. The patient was adjusted weekly. Her progress was closely monitored. A total of ten adjustments were administered and the mother was successful in having a vaginal birth after a cesarean. (3)

Researching Chiropractic: Defiant behavior, GERD, High BP

How many people suffering, on drugs, or facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?   Probably most of them.

Non-verbal and defiant behavior in a 3-year-old

A 3-year-old girl who was non-verbal and had been exhibiting defiant-like behavioral issues since age two was brought in for chiropractic care. She was unable to connect with family members verbally, emotionally, and physically. Medical interventions, such as speech therapy, failed to make significant improvements.

Chiropractic adjustments were given to address her vertebral subluxations. She received care once a week for 20 weeks.

The mother reported that she was able to start communicating and connecting with her family, loved ones, and the outside world with no complications following the delivery of chiropractic care.  Improvements included falling asleep and quality of sleep, ability to concentrate, attention and focus. In addition, she was no longer displaying defiant-like behaviors. (1)

High blood pressure in a 52-year-old woman

A 52-year-old woman with a chief complaint of high blood pressure began chiropractic care. Her initial blood pressure reading was 185/90 mmHg.  She was advised by an MD to take medication but decided to seek chiropractic care first. 

She received one adjustment a week for 12 weeks. Adjustments were needed in the cervical (neck), and thoracic (mid-back) regions of the spine as well as the pelvis. At her second visit, her BP was reduced to 165/88 mmHg. At the 7th office visit, BP proved to have significantly decreased to a reading of 130/86 mmHg and by the 12th visit, it had reduced to 106/62 mmHg. The experience, in this case, has been found to be consistent with other studies showing chiropractic’s benefit for hypertension. (2)

Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disorder (GERD)

A seven-month-old girl suffering from unresolved acid reflux for two months was brought in for chiropractic care. Pediatrician-prescribed drugs (Pepcid T and Zantac) were ineffective. The child was unable to sleep through the night due to the pain and discomfort from being gassy and constipated. 

By week four, the mother says her daughter is like “a new baby!” The mother has taken her off all reflux medications and her signs and symptoms have subsided.  The child was now responding to others, pleasant, and sleeping well. (3)

Researching Chiropractic: GERD, Low Back Pain, Sleep Problems

How many people suffering, on drugs, or facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?   Probably most of them.

Eight-month-old with GERD, sleep disorders, torticollis, and more…

An 8-month-old boy who experienced birth trauma was suffering from severe gastrointestinal disorders (GERD), constipation, torticollis, plagiocephaly, developmental delays, and abnormal sleeping patterns after a traumatic delivery. Medical care and physical therapy had failed to help.

Chiropractic care was applied to correct vertebral subluxations.

The patient’s mother reported complete resolution of his GERD. He was able to discontinue the use of Zantac and Prilosec. His sleep problems and constipation were resolved. In addition, he had complete resolution of his torticollis with a full neck range of motion. He began to reach his developmental milestones. (1)

Low Back Pain, Radiculopathy, and Concomitant Depression

The patient is a 44-year-old man with low back pain and nerve symptoms going down his legs. His symptoms occurred after a fall 6 months prior. 

After six weeks of care, all lumbar radiculopathy symptoms resolved. (2) 

Sleep Problems, Digestion, Behavior, and Allergies in a 5-year-old girl

A 5-year-old girl with a CASK gene mutation presented for chiropractic care complaining of poor sleep, allergies, poor digestion, and other issues.  The patient was under care over the course of three months and her mother reported:

“[Her] sleep improved very soon after we started to care. Prior to chiro care, she was waking 2-3 times per night…soon decreased to less than once a night within the first month of care…digestion improved; bowel movements previously occurred 3-5 times a week and within the first month or so they began occurring daily… would crumble to the floor in absolute despair, and if left to ‘cry it out’ would last upwards of 45 min…the episodes were shorter, less dramatic, more manageable, and less stressful for the whole family… [her] allergies [were] so bad…she was not able to blow her nose or clear her sinuses, and would have an open mouth just to breathe, allowing for drool…allergy attacks have been completely manageable with a couple of days of allergy medicine, natural remedies, and adjustments. No more need for bibs….”

Both subjective and objective improvements were observed in our patient progressively throughout her care plan and guided the practitioner in his application of care. (3)

Researching Chiropractic: Migraines & Asthma

How many people suffering, on drugs, or facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care? Probably most of them.

Chronic Migraines in a 15-Year-Old

A 15-year-old boy came to the chiropractic office complaining of migraine headaches.  They began when he was three years of age! At that age, he was involved in a motor vehicle accident. When he came to our office, he was averaging one migraine every 3 weeks. Research has revealed that 10% of school-age children and 28% of adolescents (i.e., between 15-19 years of age) experience migraine headaches.

X-rays revealed a possible upper cervical (upper neck) vertebral subluxation involving C-1, the first vertebra beneath the skull, and C-2, which lies below C-1. 

On the first visit, the patient was adjusted to remove/reduce his subluxations. Immediately the sharp pressure he was experiencing prior began to alleviate. Over the next 24-months, he experienced only 5 migraine headaches. (1)

Asthma in a two-year-old

Asthma in children is very prevalent in the general population with 9 million U.S. children under 18 being diagnosed with asthma. In 2005, an estimated 22.2 million people in the U.S. suffered from asthma. Asthma is the leading cause of school absence in the United States.

 

In this case, a twenty-four-month-old boy suffering from asthma, chronic colds, and respiratory issues since birth was brought in by his mother for a chiropractic evaluation.  When he came in for care he was taking two medications prescribed by his pediatric pulmonologist, Flovent and Singulair, daily. 

The child was delivered prematurely at 31 weeks by emergency cesarean section. 

At the initial chiropractic examination, the patient was “fully vaccinated.” 

Both upper and lower spinal areas showed evidence of subluxations. 

Multiple subluxations and the subluxations were adjusted. The child’s care plan was initially set at 2-3 times a week for the initial four weeks however after the 4th visit, the mother stopped giving her son the prescription medications due to his improvement in symptoms. As of this writing in the past two years, the child has had no asthma symptoms and has reported only one cold. (2)

Numbness and Burning in the Arm, Stiffness in the Neck

The patient suffered from chronic progressive cervical radiculopathy (pain and numbness radiating from the neck) for two months prior to seeing a chiropractor. The patient had numbness and a burning sensation in the right arm and stiffness in the lower cervical spine.

The patient received chiropractic care to adjust vertebral subluxations. After 11 visits the patient reported a significant improvement in numbness and tingling in her arm and an improvement in quality of life. (3)

Researching Chiropractic: Balance, trigeminal neuralgia, & lower back pain

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.

Balance, coordination, and neurological problems

A 65-year-old retired man was suffering from balance and coordination problems. He was given neurological tests that confirmed nervous system stress.  

He sought out chiropractic care where he received a spinal analysis. It revealed the presence of vertebral subluxations. The patient received chiropractic adjustments to release/reduce his subluxations and began to show immediate improvements in balance, coordination, and ability to complete neurological tests. He had been unable to complete the tests during the initial exam. (1)

Woman with trigeminal neuralgia

A 30-year-old woman was suffering from trigeminal neuralgia (also known as tic-douloureux). Trigeminal Neuralgia is an extremely painful condition in which the facial nerve is highly inflamed. It has been called the “suicide disease” because the extreme pain has led some sufferers to take their own lives!

The patient visited a chiropractor that reduced her vertebral (atlas or C-1) subluxation. The patient reported that by her tenth visit she was no longer suffering from TN. (2) 

Lower back pain and degenerative joint disease

A 59-year-old man diagnosed with degenerative joint disease and suffering from chronic lower back pain visited a chiropractor. The Doctor of Chiropractic used various spinal adjustment techniques to correct his subluxations. The patient showed improvement in all his subjective and objective findings within six visits, better immune function, increased energy as well as an increase in his disc height at multiple spinal levels. (3)

Chiropractic & Exercise: Perfect for Fibromyalgia

Regular chiropractic visits can actually help fibromyalgia patients adhere to long-term physical-therapy programs, thereby ensuring that patients receive the full benefits of exercise.

In a 2009 study (1), 55 women with fibromyalgia ages 21-59 years old were divided into two groups: some completed resistance training and the others received chiropractic adjustments in addition to doing resistance training.  Both groups improved significantly with increased upper and lower body strength, decreased pain and tender points, and an improved ability to perform everyday tasks. But the patients who received chiropractic care were more likely to follow the exercise program consistently. They also had more significant improvements in functionality, balance, flexibility, and endurance.

This study confirmed the power of exercise and resistance training to ease the pain of fibromyalgia. At the same time, it demonstrates that combining chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy may enhance the benefits of both treatments.

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Chiropractic care is made up of two parts. First, a subluxation, a physical distortion causing nerve interference or stress, is located in a person’s body. This is done using various instruments and tools that may range from the highly sophisticated, such as X-rays and MRIs, to the relatively simple (body measurement and various tests). In the hands of an expert, a simple tool can be very accurate.

Untitled design - 2021-11-09T123535.209

Now comes the specialized procedure to correct, release or (the most commonly used word) adjust the patient’s subluxation. This is done to undistort the distortion in a person, to correct the hidden stress, to release nerve stress. There are many chiropractic adjustment techniques, over 100 are taught today. 

Typically, the adjustment involves introducing force or energy to the part of the body where the subluxation resides to unlock it, to put the part in motion so that the body will reposition the offending part. 

An adjustment may take a moment, but its beneficial effects may be lifelong.

Researching Chiropractic: Shoulders, Vertigo, Breast Feeding

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.

Shoulder problems in two patients. Untitled design - 2021-10-14T105042.923

A 45-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man had complaints of shoulder pain and restriction. Both reported falls and accidents two months prior. Over-the-counter medication and physical therapy were ineffective.

Both patients received upper cervical (upper neck) chiropractic adjustments. Significant improvements in shoulder range of motion and decreased pain occurred in both patients. (2) 

Vertigo, hearing, and quality of life. 

A fifty-one-year-old woman was diagnosed with Chiari malformation (CM), a structural defect where the brainstem is below itsUntitled design - 2021-10-14T105144.895 typical/normal position. CM can cause headaches, difficulty swallowing, vomiting, dizziness, neck pain, unsteady gait, poor hand coordination, numbness and tingling of the hands and feet as well as speech problems. 

This woman suffered from Meniere’s disease, migraine, concussion, whiplash, upper cervical subluxation, and TMJ dysfunction. 

She had previously received skull and neck surgery to address her symptoms. She experienced only temporary relief.

She began chiropractic care. At a two-year follow up she reported that her vertigo number went from 10 to 1 (occasional imbalance but no dizziness) and her hearing was restored. Her tinnitus was replaced by an occasional humming sound. She reports she has her confidence back, can drive and shop again and her sleep has improved. (3) 

Breastfeeding difficulties.Untitled design - 2021-10-14T105235.858

 A 9-day-old girl with a history of birth trauma was brought in for chiropractic care. Her mother reported that her daughter had breastfeeding difficulties and failure to gain weight. Breastfeeding was so painful that a lactation consultant recommended a nipple shield.

The child had chiropractic adjustment to her atlas (C-1 vertebrae) and sacrum along with cranial care. She had four visits in two weeks and after each visit, the mother reported more comfortable breastfeeding and an increase in weight gain. (4)

What part of your body does this?

It deactivates drugs – without it, a few ounces of alcohol could keep you drunk for life; a moment’s adrenaline rush would go on and on; pharmaceuticals would never stop altering your body chemistry.

It helps life-sustaining nutrients to get to your cells.

It converts food into nutrients.

It stores fats, sugars, iron, and vitamins for later use by the body

It is the most amazing juggler in existence – creating and balancing over 13,000 chemicals and hormones.

It keeps your blood sugar levels within a safe margin and balances vitamins and minerals so your bones will stay strong and won’t deteriorate.

It clears out inhaled, swallowed, or absorbed (through the skin) toxins, chemicals, and pollution. Without this constant detoxification of waste and toxins, you’d be dead in less than a day.

It works 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and doesn’t take off for holidays.

With the exception of your skin, it is the largest organ in your body and performs more than 500 functions to keep you healthy.

If you guessed your liver……… go to the head of the class.

When your liver is not functioning properly you may feel sluggish and possibly nauseous. Many of your organs are affected by an unhealthy liver – your eyes can be bloodshot, you can have bad breath, abdominal bloating, poor digestion, fatigue, a coated tongue, a sluggish metabolism, excessive body heat, sugar cravings, and inability to lose weight. A sluggish liver stresses the kidney, heart, and brain.

This is one very important organ.

An important way to keep your liver healthy is to make sure your spine is healthy. Why? Because your liver, as well as your other organs, needs constant communications from your spine. A subluxation could block essential communications between your brain and body, potentially affecting liver function.
