Case Study Quality of Life Improvements and Spontaneous Lifestyle Changes in a  Patient Undergoing Subluxation-Centered Chiropractic Care: A Case Study Yannick Pauli, D.C. Bio [October 11, 2006, pg 1-15]


Purpose of study:  This case study is to report the improvement in quality of life  experienced by a patient undergoing subluxation-centered chiropractic  care.

Clinical Features:  A 36 year old male presented with  primary health concerns of stress,  eye pain and left leg pain of 14 years duration radiating to the foot  and secondary complaints of gastritis, ulcers, nervousness, depression,   lack of concentration and general loss of interest in daily life. The  patient also smokes, does not exercise, eats a sub-optimal diet and  rated his family and friends support, as well as job satisfaction as  sufficient.

Intervention and Outcome:  We discuss the various analyses employed to evaluate vertebral  subluxations, including paraspinal surface electromyography and  thermography. Adjustive care included a combination of Network Spinal  Analysis, Torque Release Technique and diversified structural  adjustments to correct vertebral subluxations over a six month period.  We used visual analog scales, open-ended questions and selected items  from the Self-Rated Health and Wellness Instrument to monitor health  changes, as well as the positive improvements in quality of life as  perceived by the patient himself.

Conclusion:  This case study demonstrates that the correction of vertebral  subluxations over an 11 month period was associated with significant  improvements in the quality of life of the patient.
