There seems to be no end to the conditions that respond to chiropractic care – physical as well as psychological 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 function known as the subluxation.
No matter what condition you or a loved one may have, you and they will always function better when free from subluxations. Chiropractors are uniquely trained to locate and correct subluxations. Enjoy this month’s cases and see more next month.
Urinary incontinence.A 63-year-old woman was suffering from urinary incontinence and pain. On X-ray her neck curve was found to be abnormal and she held her head slightly forwards as she walked.
Over a 54-day period, she had twenty-two chiropractic visits. Throughout care there was a complete resolution of urinary incontinence and almost a complete resolution of pain. (7)
High blood pressure. Twenty people were randomly selected to go into a placebo (control) group or a chiropractic group. The chiropractic group received spinal care while the others received a sham adjustment. Blood pressure was recorded for each participant before the study, at one week, two weeks, four weeks and six weeks.
The chiropractic group had significant lowering of both their systolic and diastolic blood pressure with improvements continuing during the entire study period (six weeks).
The control group had no statistically significant differences detected in the systolic or diastolic values. (8)
Seizures. A 14 year-old girl suffering from 30-40 seizure-like events every month began chiropractic care. She had a series of chiropractic adjustments for the correction of subluxations over a five-month period.
During this time period the patient experienced a dramatic decrease in symptoms and frequency of seizures. Improvements were noted on the static and thermal surface EMG’s over the course of the patient’s care. The patient remains under chiropractic care at the time of this report, and has been seizure free for seven months. (9)
