Surprising Health Conditions You Can Overcome with Chiropractic Treatment
It is well known Chiropractors can treat musculoskeletal pains, whether acute or chronic. What you may not know is chiropractic care is also effective with a wide range of other health conditions. Some DCs specialize in children’s healthcare while others have more expertise in managing pregnancy related problems. Take a look at the following case studies where chiropractic treatment has helped.
Ear Related Problems
Chiropractic care has been shown to help patients suffering from ear conditions such as hearing loss, tinnitus, and vertigo. After just a few chiropractic sessions patients have experienced positive results.
- Case Study – A 13-month old baby was diagnosed with otitis media. Antibiotics and nasal saline had been given to the baby but didn’t help. Finally she was taken to an experienced chiropractor. The chiropractor found the baby had a subluxation in the sacroiliac, cervical, thoracic, and lumber regions. The baby underwent safe chiropractic adjustments and within a month of these chiropractic sessions, the baby no longer had this problem.
Chiropractic treatment is very popular among migraine patients. While taking pain-killers and other conventional or not so conventional drugs help mask the pain they don’t actually fix the problem. However, chiropractic care has been found to relieve the symptoms of a migraine by putting the body and spine back into the proper position which in most cases has stopped the headaches from recurring.
- Case Study –A 35 year old woman, a professional ice skater, suffered from tension and migraine headaches. These headaches were the results of a concussion she received at the age of 23. For 12 years this patient tried various pain medications that did nothing. On the advice of a friend she visited a chiropractor. As the chiropractic adjustments began she nearly immediately started to feel relief from her daily headaches. Finally, after 3 months she completely stopped having her migraines.
High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure can be caused by a number of factors. Nevertheless, Chiropractic treatment and proper, safe, spinal manipulations can help patients with high BP take back control of their blood pressure.
- Case Study –A study was conducted at the University of Chicago on hypertension patients over a period of two months. Just from their chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulations most patients saw a 17 point drop in their systolic and diastolic pressure levels.
Chiropractic treatments are also effective in treating nasal passage pain from sinusitis.
- Case Study – A 12-year old boy was suffering from chronic sinusitis that caused him a problem every few months and antibiotics were not helping. Not wanting to suffer this way forever, his parents read about chiropractic treatment and decided to give it a try. Within just three chiropractic sessions, his sinus infection was completely gone and greater flexibility was restored to his upper middle spine and neck.
