Abstract/Notes

Objective: To present a case study of conservative chiropractic care of a female that presented with multiple health issues and following chiropractic care experienced improvement or resolution of several of these issues, most notably her type 2 diabetes.

Clinical Features: A 67 year old female presented with several complaints which included type 2 diabetes mellitus that had been diagnosed by a medical physician when she was 40 years of age. The patient was also found to have several vertebral subluxations throughout her spine, along with postural alterations. She had sought care from several providers with no resolution in any of her complaints.

Interventions and Outcomes: The patient received specific chiropractic adjustments according to Diversified technique in the regions of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine and also pelvis. Physical rehabilitation exercises were given to address the patient’s postural alterations found on her initial exam. After receiving chiropractic care the patient obtained several positive results. After four visits, the patient returned to her medical doctor and was able to stop taking insulin for her diabetes. Her blood sugar levels remained within normal limits throughout the rest of her care.

Conclusion: The use of conservative chiropractic care was shown in this case to be an effective alternative management for a patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Further research is required to understand the efficacy of chiropractic in management of this condition.
