  Title Regeneration of severe ligament instability and improvement in symptoms of benign prostate hyperplasia in a 76-year-old male under concentrated chiropractic care: A case report
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2024 Jan-Mar;4(3):7
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Background: A 76-year-old male patient presented for chiropractic care at the behest of his wife. He was healthy and active, however, upon examination, an extraordinary level of ligament instability was discovered in his neck. This level of dysfunction would ordinarily require urgent or surgical intervention.

Management: The patient undertook an initial 5-day course of concentrated chiropractic care, and completed a total of four courses of care over fifteen months utilising a variety of chiropractic adjustments and complementary therapies.

Outcomes: Due to presentation at a chiropractic clinic even when he was feeling ‘healthy’, appropriate care and activity restrictions were put in place before a catastrophic injury took place. Over the course of care, regeneration of severe ligament instability and improvements in benign prostate hyperplasia were achieved.
