Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Objective: To report on a female patient who presented for chiropractic care with depression.

Clinical Features: 49 year old female who presented with a history of depression, asthma, high stress, mood and gastrointestinal changes.

Intervention and Outcome: Over a period of 7 months, a specific, conservative chiropractic adjustment regimen for the correction of vertebral subluxation was administered to the patient. The care plan was altered in accordance to outcome measures and over this time period the patient exhibited a considerable decrease in presenting symptomology alongside a substantial increase in self rated quality of life. Self-rated health/wellness (SRHW) surveys were taken prior to care and at subsequent progress visits assessing four domains of health (Physical state, Emotional/Mental state, Stress and Life Enjoyment) as well as Overall Quality of Life. Static and Thermal EMG were performed using the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance (CLA) Insight™ surface EMG and thermal scanning technology. Improvements were noted in SRHW and surface EMG and thermal scanning over the 7 months of care.

Conclusion: While under chiropractic care subjective and objective improvements in physical, mental and social well-being were documented in a patient with a history of depression, asthma, high stress, mood and gastrointestinal changes.
