  Title Resolution of obstructive sleep apnea following chiropractic care to reduce vertebral subluxation [case report]
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2017 Winter-Spring;2017(1-2):Online access only p 113-118
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The purpose of the study is to provide a detailed report on the improvement and reduction of symptoms of a patient diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by way of Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) chiropractic care.

Clinical features: A 51-year-old male presented with an eight-year history of sleeping problems associated with sleep apnea.

Intervention and outcomes: The chiropractic care administered was CBP protocol, a technique based on restoring the normal three-dimensional curvatures to the spine. Myo-Vision Thermography (thermal scan) was used to measure the patient’s progress throughout the course of treatment.

Conclusion: This case demonstrates the reduction and improvement of obstructive sleep apnea and associated sleeping problems following consistent subluxation-based chiropractic care in a 51-year-old male. This case provides additional evidence to the literature of the positive effects subluxation-based care can have on the improvement of obstructive sleep apnea. It is necessary to note that additional chiropractic studies on the topic are required to further support the evidence.
