Abstract/Notes

Objective: To report reductions in the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) in three patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) utilizing Kale Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic protocol over 3 years.

Clinical Features: Patient one is a 63-year-old male who presented to the office diagnosed with PD with a UPDRS rating of 25. Using knee chest upper cervical specific protocol, it was established that the patient had a subluxation with a combination listing of ASL-PL. Patient two is a 65-year-old male who presented with PD and a UPDRS rating of 27. Using knee chest upper cervical specific protocol, it was established that the patient had a subluxation with a combination listing of ASRA-PLI. Patient three is a 66-year-old male who presented with PD and a UPDRS rating of 39. Using knee chest upper cervical specific protocol, it was established that the patient had a subluxation with a listing of PL.

Interventions and Outcome: Using Upper Cervical Specific Protocol, x-rays, bilateral NeuroCaloGraph (NCG) readings, orthopedic, neurological testing, and UPDRS scoring, the patient’s outcomes demonstrated significantly reduced UPDRS scores. Orthopedic findings, neurological findings and NCG readings were also improved significantly.

Conclusion: Upper Cervical Specific chiropractic care utilized on three patients with a diagnosis of PD, rated using the UPDRS test at 2 months, 6 months and 36 months. Results associated with PD included better overall health, improved ambulation, a reduced UPDRS score and a reduction in upper cervical subluxations were all obtained.
