Abstract/Notes

Objective: To describe the reorganization and reduction of intraocular pressure (IOP) in a chiropractic patient with diabetic retinopathy and concurrent loss of vision undergoing Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) care.

Clinical Features: A 46-year-old male with type I insulin dependent diabetes presented for chiropractic care. His complaints included numbness in both arms and fingers of the left hand, and diabetic retinopathy with total loss of vision for the past five years.

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient received NSA care 221 times over three years. After 8 months of care, he reported seeing shapes and colors through his left eye only for the first time in 5 years. He also reported a drop in intraocular pressure from an initial 50 mm Hg down to 18 mm Hg.

Conclusion: The patient in this case experienced improved intraocular pressure and vision following Network Spinal Analysis care. More research is warranted to better understand this link between Network Spinal Analysis care, chiropractic and the diabetic patient. Link to PDF version
