  Title Improvement in GERD following reduction of vertebral subluxations & improved sagittal alignment utilizing Chiropractic Biophysics protocol [case report]
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2014 Spring;2014(2):Online access only p 99-109
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To report on the case of a patient with lumbopelvic and cervical postural distortions utilizing Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP®) protocol of care.
Clinical Features: A 27-year-old female hair stylist presents to a CBP® chiropractic office with a history of upper and mid-back pain, and gastro-esophageal reflux disease. X-ray revealed a 17.5mm anterior head-to- thorax translation (+TzH), a 6 cervical lordosis, and a 17 lumbar lordosis, with a 9mm posterior translation of the thoracic cage over the pelvis. All measurements were based on CBP® protocol for x-ray line drawing.
Intervention and Outcomes: The patient received high velocity low amplitude adjustments using the CBP® protocol of care over a 2-month period, receiving 19 sessions. Mirror-image® adjustments, mirror-image® exercises, and mirror-image® traction were administered to reduce the patient’s spinal subluxations and postural distortions. The patient was seen 3 times per week for the 2 months at which time follow-up radiographs were taken, showing noticeable improvement in postural measurements toward normal sagittal spinal alignment as well as concomitant improvement in Gastro-esophageal reflux (GERD) symptoms.
Conclusion: Improvement in the patient’s abnormal posture and reduction of GERD symptoms as well as reductions of the radiographic vertebral subluxations were achieved using Chiropractic BioPhysics® rehabilitation protocol.
