  Title Case study. Conservative manual chiropractic management of a recurrent medial luxating patella in a dog [case report]
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2009 Mar;39(1):27-28
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Objective: The intended purpose of presenting this case is to report the favorable outcome of manual therapeutic intervention in a case of grade 2 recurrent medial luxating patella in a dog.

Procedure: The dog, a Pomeranian companion animal, was presented with a right recurrent grade 1-2 luxating patella with a history and subsequent surgical correction of a similar presentation in the left. The dog was found to most notably have restriction in the sacro-illiac joint and hypertonic sartorius and psoas muscles ipsilateral to the involved patella. The dog was given chiropractic adjustments to the restricted joints and myofascial relesase was applied to the named muscles.

Results: Response to treatment was favorable, lowering the incidence of luxation eventually to the point of absence and decreasing the level of the dog's disability. The duration of relief is however unknown.

Conclusion: Management with manual therapeutic intervention may represent a cost effective and noninvasive solution to the management or recurrent luxating patella. Though similar findings would have to be found in other cases to warrant certainty..
