  Title Chiropractic care of a patient with Parkinson’s disease utilizing Chiropractic Biophysics: A case study [case report]
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2012 Spring;2012(2):Online access only p 31-40
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To report on the subjective and objective improvements of a patient with Parkinson’s disease, abnormal posture, and vertebral subluxations after undergoing chiropractic care utilizing Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP). 

Clinical Features: A 67-year-old Caucasian male previously diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease with secondary psoriatic arthritis and lumbar radiculopathy presented for chiropractic care. Cervical radiographs confirmed a 43% loss of structural cervical lordosis. 

Intervention and Outcome: Chiropractic care was provided utilizing Chiropractic Biophysics to reduce vertebral subluxations, improve postural, and spinal alignment.  CBP rehabilitative corrective care was conducted over a 12-week period. There was an overall reduction in the patient’s vertebral subluxations and symptomatology with improvement in cervical lordosis, in addition to prominent enhancement in the patient’s activities of daily living. 

Conclusion: This retrospective case study reports on the effectiveness of Chiropractic Biophysics in reducing vertebral subluxations and symptomatology by improving postural and spinal alignment of a 67 year-old patient with Parkinson’s disease.  Further research on chiropractic care correcting abnormal posture and spinal alignment with a reduction of symptomatology in Parkinson’s disease is suggested.
