  Title Congestive heart failure: A review and case report from a chiropractic teaching clinic [case report]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2005 Jun;28(5):356-364
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes OBJECTIVE: To discuss the case of a 62-year-old woman with congestive heart failure (CHF), precipitated by a previous arteriovenous malformation, and to review the clinical presentation, pathophysiology, and treatment options for patients with CHF.

CLINICAL FEATURES: The patient complained of pain, rapid weight gain, and shortness of breath. The index event for this patient was known to be an arteriovenous malformation. Biventricular cardiomegaly with pulmonary venous hypertension was evident on chest radiographs.

INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: The patient received both medical care (drug therapy) and chiropractic care (manipulation and soft tissue techniques to alleviate symptoms and discomfort).

CONCLUSION: Patients with known and undiagnosed CHF may visit the chiropractic physician; thus, knowledge of comprehensive care, differential diagnosis, and continuity of care are important. Chiropractic management may be helpful in alleviating patient discomfort. Further clinical investigations may help to clarify the role of complementary and alternative care in the diagnosis and treatment of CHF.
