Abstract/Notes

Objective: This case describes the reduction of a lumbar scoliosis and improvement in the cervical curve in a 75 year old male patient under Network Spinal Analysis™ (NSA) care. Possible mechanisms for structural change through a low-force, tonal chiropractic adjustment technique are discussed.

Clinical Features: The patient was a 75 year old male who presented for wellness based chiropractic care. He also had a complaint of mild to moderate shoulder pain. A lumbar scoliosis with a Cobb Angle of 11 degrees was found on a standing radiograph, as well as a kyphotic cervical curve and reduced atlas plane line.

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient received NSA care under standard protocols for a two year period. The patient was also asked to do two rehabilitative stretches for home care. The Cobb Angle reduced to three degrees at one year, and less than one degree at two years. The atlas plane angle increased from 6 degrees to 22 degrees. The patient’s subjective findings reflect these changes.

Conclusions: Network Spinal Analysis™ care, and other low force techniques, may be effective in reorganizational change by addressing structural deformities in the spine and in restoring normal spinal curves. More research is needed in this area.
