Abstract/Notes

Objective: To describe the care of a 73 year old female with a 20 year history of dysphagia which resolved while she was receiving chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A 73 year old female was pain free at the time of presentation but she reported a 20 year history of chronic difficulty in swallowing with a feeling of choking on food. Multiple levels of vertebral subluxations were observed, otherwise her physical examination was unremarkable.

Interventions and Outcomes: The patient was initially scheduled for three chiropractic visits per week for a period of four weeks. The patient noted that after her first adjustment visit her chronic dysphagia resolved. A full progress evaluation was performed after 12 visits to determine further clinical changes. Her dysphagia remained in remission and she was now able to eat a normal diet without a feeling of choking on her food.

Conclusion: This is the first case study to report complete resolution of chronic dysphagia in an older patient that is temporally associated with the provision of chiropractic care.
