Resolution Of Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Scoliosis And Cluster Headaches, In A Patient With Opioid Addiction Undergoing Chiropractic Care to Reduce Subluxations by Nachmias Chriropractic

The case study below describes some of many positive outcomes of chiropractic care. What chiropractic is all about is to remove blockages of the spine (which the study refers to as subluxations) and thereby help the nervous system flow freely in the body.

This in turn contributes to a strong self healing immune system that will keep ill health – mental or physical – away and also help fight against already existing immune system attacks (illnesses). Our health depends on the nervous system, so we have to ensure its optimal function, and that is exactly what chiropractic care does.

In this case study, the 21-year-old male patient, gets relief from both physical pain and mental ill health. Chiropractic even helped him overcoming his drug addiction. Find out more details from the study.

Abstract Of Case Study

Objective

To report the results of subluxation-based chiropractic care in a patient complaining of anxiety, depression, insomnia, and cluster headaches while undergoing treatment and recovery from substance abuse. The results are based on this case study and also review of literature.

Clinical Features

A 21-year-old male patient presented into a chiropractic office complaining of anxiety, depression, insomnia, and cluster headaches. Patient stated he was also undergoing substance abuse treatment. X-ray radiographs revealed a 21-degree thoracic dextroscoliosis, along with cervical hypolordosis, thoracic hypokyphosis, and lumbar hyperlordosis.

Intervention And Outcome

Initial postural and radiographic examinations were performed. After being put on an appropriate care plan, the patient was assessed and adjusted when necessary for subluxation using traditional chiropractic adjustments.

Patient was also prescribed cervical traction and therapeutic exercises. Upon completion of the care plan, the patient had a 10-degree reduction in the thoracic dextroscoliosis measurement and obtained restoration of normal cervical, thoracic, and lumbar curvature. Patient decreased and eventually stopped all medication usage and has not experienced a relapse in 4.5 years.

Conclusion

Subluxation-based chiropractic care played a role in the resolution of the patient’s complaints. The patient was able to stop all medications and live a productive life symptom free.

Treat Sciatica Symptoms With Chiropractic

Treat Sciatica Symptoms With Chiropractic by Nachmias Chiropractic

Chiropractors regularly treat sciatica. Sciatica is characterized by pain that originates in the low back or buttock that travels into one or both legs. Sciatic nerve pain varies in intensity and frequency; minimal, moderate, severe and occasional, intermittent, frequent or constant.

Pain is described as dull, achy, sharp, toothache-like, pins and needles or similar to electric shocks. Other symptoms associated with sciatica include burning, numbness and tingling sensations. Sciatica is also called radiating or referred pain, neuropathy, or neuralgia.

What Causes Sciatica?

Sciatica is generally caused by sciatic nerve compression. Disorders known to cause sciatic nerve pain include lumbar spine subluxations, herniated or bulging discs (slipped discs), pregnancy and childbirth, tumors, and non-spinal disorders such as diabetes, and constipation.

One common cause of sciatica is piriformis syndrome. Piriformis syndrome is named after the piriformis muscle. The piriformis muscle is located in the lower part of the spine, connects to the thighbone, and assists in hip rotation.

The sciatic nerve runs beneath the piriformis muscle. This muscle is susceptible to injury from a slip and fall, hip arthritis, or a difference in leg length. Such situations can cause cramping and spasm to develop in the piriformis muscle, thereby pinching the sciatic nerve and causing inflammation and pain. Sciatic nerve compression may result in the loss of feeling (sensory loss), paralysis of a single limb or group of muscles (monoplegia), and insomnia.

Chiropractic Treatment of Sciatic Symptoms

The purpose of chiropractic treatment is to help the body’s potential to heal itself. It is based on the scientific principle that restricted spinal movement leads to pain and reduced function and performance.

Chiropractic Care Is A Non-Invasive And
Drug-Free Treatment Option

The type of chiropractic therapy provided depends on the cause of the patient’s sciatica. A sciatica treatment plan may include several different treatments such as ice/cold therapies, ultrasound, and spinal adjustments.

Below are more details on these chiropractic treatment modalities:

  • Ice/Cold Therapy: Reduces inflammation and helps to control sciatic pain.
  • Chiropractic Adjustments Or Spinal Manipulations: At the core of chiropractic care are spinal adjustments. Manipulation frees restricted movement of the spine and helps to restore misaligned vertebral bodies to their proper position in the spinal column.Spinal adjustment helps to reduce nerve irritability responsible for causing inflammation, muscle spasm, pain, and other symptoms related to sciatica. Adjustments should not be painful. Spinal manipulation is proven to be safe and effective (source: spineuniverse.com).

Chiropractic Boosts the Immune System And Keeps You Healthy And Strong

Chiropractic Boosts the Immune System And Keeps You Healthy And Strong

Chiropractic Boosts the Immune System And Keeps You Healthy And Strong by Nachmias ChiropracticSubluxation is the term for misalignments of the spine that cause compression and irritation of nerve pathways, which in turn affects the body’s organs.

Subluxations are an example of physical nerve stress that affects neuronal control.

According to researchers, such stressful conditions lead to altered measures of immune function and an increased vulnerability to many diseases.
Luckily, there is chiropractic care to adjust the subluxations of the spine and help strengthen the immune system and your overall health. We will explain exactly how chiropractic does this, but first, let us take a look at the nervous system and its connection to the immune system and endocrine system.

The Immune System, Endocrine System, and Nervous System

The nervous system, endocrine system, and immune system are inextricably linked. Together they share tiny messenger molecules that mediate communication between them, creating optimal responses for the body to adapt and heal appropriately.

It is important to stress that the endocrine system also impacts the immune system by producing cortisol in the adrenal glands. Endocrine glands are directly connected to the nervous system through the sympathetic nervous system. Cortisol is a stress hormone that inhibits the immune system and makes it weaker.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic is the only way to detect and eliminate subluxations. Chiropractic adjustments of the spine have shown to reduce stress on the nervous system, thereby boosting the coordinated responses of the nervous and immune systems.

“The chiropractic immunology connection was strengthened in 1991 when Patricia Brennan, Ph.D. and other researchers conducted a study that found improved immune response following chiropractic treatment. Specifically, the study demonstrated the “phagocytic respiratory burst of polymorphnuclear neutrophils (PMN) and monocytes were enhanced in adults that had been adjusted by chiropractors.”

In other words, the cells that act like “Pac-Man” eating and destroying bad cells, are enhanced through chiropractic care. Research has also shown that when a spinal adjustment was performed on a subluxated area, the white blood cell count collected rose significantly.

To simplify this – chiropractic adjustments remove blockages of the spine, which in turn helps the nervous system flow freely – hence boosting the immune system.
