Researching Chiropractic June Addition: Chiropractic is Corrective

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.

chiropractic corrects many health issues

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.

Diabetes and chiropractic. 

woman with diabetesA 67-year-old woman presented with many complaints. This included type 2 diabetes mellitus that had been diagnosed when she was 40 years of age.

Chiropractic analysis revealed that she had several vertebral subluxations throughout her spine, along with postural alterations. She had sought care from other health care providers with no resolution in any of her complaints. She received specific chiropractic adjustments in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine and also to her pelvis.

After four visits, the patient returned to her medical doctor and was able to stop taking insulin for her diabetes. Her blood sugar levels remained within normal limits throughout the rest of her care. (1)

The specific outcome that was measured was the Preschool Language Scale-4 (PLS-4). The PLS-4 was given four times over the one-year period.

Expressive and receptive language delays were assessed before, during and after care. These children saw an average increase of 24 months of language development in one year, while under care. (3)
