Chiropractic and Parkinson’s

New research just published on several people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) who’ve experienced improved health outcomes through adjusting of their subluxations.

  • Upper Cervical Specific chiropractic care utilized on three patients with a diagnosis of PD, rated using the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) test at 2 months, 6 months and 36 months. Results associated with PD included better overall health, improved ambulation (walking),  a reduced UPDRS score and a reduction in upper cervical subluxations were all obtained. (Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research ~ May 15, 2014 ~ Pages 23-33)
  • The upper cervical subluxation may be a contributing factor to the symptomatic expression of Parkinson’s disease. Reduction of the subluxation with specific correction may be a plausible, safe, and effective approach for managing PD. More research is warranted investigating the effects of upper cervical care and Parkinson’s Disease (PD). (Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research ~ March 14, 2011 ~ Pages 18-21)
  • Upper Cervical Specific chiropractic care of a patient diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease over the course of three and a half months is presented. Marked resolution of the patient’s neurological signs and symptoms associated with Parkinson’s as well as a reduction in the presentation of upper cervical subluxation was obtained. (Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research ~ August 1, 2011 ~ Pages 50-56)
  • Improvement of the Atlas alignment is associated with reduction of most of this patient’s Parkinson’s symptoms; Including decrease in frequency and intensity of his middle back pain, improvement in his quality of life and improvement in his motor functions. (Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research ~ Issue 3 ~ July 30, 2012 ~ Pages 63-70)
  • Eighty-One Patients with Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease Undergoing Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care to Correct Vertebral Subluxation: Conclusion: A causal link between trauma-induced upper cervical injury and disease onset for both Multiple Sclerosis and PD appears to exist. Correcting the injury to the upper cervical spine through the use of chiropractic protocols may arrest and reverse the progression of both MS and PD. (Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research ~ August 2, 2004 ~ Pages 1-9)
