Abstract/Notes

Objectives: To report on and discuss the changes in a 72 year old male who presented for chiropractic care suffering from multiple health complaints.

Case History: A 72 year old male presented to a private chiropractic practice in Auckland, New Zealand suffering from severe postural alterations, mild depression, low back pain, balance disturbances, perpetual tiredness and mild depression.

Interventions and Outcomes: Over a nine week period, a specific and conservative chiropractic care plan was provided to the patient. The care plan involved Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) adjustments and the frequency of care was altered throughout this period based on both subjective and objective measures. A complete health history and physical examination was completed prior to care. A full posture analysis (Posture Pro 8 posture analysis system), and surface electromyography (sEMG) scans were performed at baseline and were then monitored regularly over the nine week period. Subjective measures were also monitored during each adjustment visit. Significant improvements were noted in postural and sEMG findings as well as in subjective measures of health over the 9 week period.

Conclusions: While under chiropractic care, improvements in both self-reported subjective and objective measures were noted in a patient with severe postural alterations, low back pain, balance disturbances, perpetual tiredness and a mildly depressive state of mind. These improvements include overall physical, mental, and emotional well-being of the patient.
