There seems to be no end to theconditions that respond to chiropractic care - physical as well aspsychological conditions.

 

That is because chiropractic does not"treat" a particular condition. Chiropractic care "treats" or more accurately,"corrects" a serious interference to brain, nervous system and energy functionknown as the subluxation.

 

No matter what condition you or aloved one may have, you and they will always function better when free fromsubluxations. Chiropractors are uniquely trained to locate and correctsubluxations. Enjoy this month's cases and see more next month.

Multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease. This study revieweddata from 81 Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients,most of whom recalled having a trauma in the past before getting theirdiagnosis. The time between the traumatic event and getting the disease variedfrom two months to 30 years!

Overa five year period the author examined and cared for these patients. Of the 81,78 recalled that they had experienced at least one head or neck trauma prior tothe onset of their disease:

  • 39 patients had been hurt in auto accidents;
  • 29 had been hurt in sporting accidents (i.e. skiing, horseback riding, cycling and football)
  • 16 had been hurt in falls on icy sidewalks or down stairs

Uppercervical (neck) subluxations were found in all 81 cases and all received uppercervical (upper neck) chiropractic care for correction of their vertebralsubluxations.

Theresults were as follows: 40 of the 44 (91%) MS patients and 34 of the 37 (92%)PD patients showed symptomatic improvement and no further disease progressionwhile they were under care. (4)

 Asthma in an 18-month-old. An 18-month-old babybegan experiencing asthmatic symptoms at age 9 months. His history includedhaving been rushed to the hospital emergency room 4 times for episodes of acuterespiratory distress. He suffered from constant wheezing and cough and was not respondingwell to pharmacological (prescription) interventions.

Theboy was seen six times over a 7-month period for correction of vertebralsubluxations. He received adjustments to his cervical spine (neck) during hisvisits. By 9 weeks of care he was not experiencing constant wheezing or having anybreathing difficulty at all.

Inaddition, analysis revealed that his vertebral subluxations had been reduced. (5)

GERD(gastroesophageal reflux disease) in a 10-month-old. The mother of a10-month-old boy brought her son in for chiropractic care. The child wasdiagnosed by his medical doctor as suffering with gastroesophageal refluxdisease (GERD). The boy's symptoms included interrupted sleep, difficultyfeeding, poor appetite, repeated bouts of diarrhea, stomach distension,excessive intestinal gas and poor weight gain.

Medicaltreatment consisted of over-the-counter antacids, followed by Nexium, andfinally Zantac. All were unsuccessful.

Overa seven-week period the child received thirteen chiropractic adjustments. Thechild began to experience immediate improvements throughout care, with completeresolution of GERD and return to normal weight.(6)
