Abstract/Notes

Objective: To discuss the chiropractic management of a patient whose unilateral color vision loss associated with macular degeneration resolved after treatment.

Clinical Features: A 66-year-old female with a history of cervical, thoracic and lumbar pain and a four-year history of macular degeneration of the left eye resulting in a loss of color vision sought chiropractic care for primarily her spinal pain. Initially she was not requesting care for her loss of color vision. She reported having multiple recent traumas (falls) injuring her cervical, thoracic and lumbar region. 

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was adjusted based on location of her subluxations (intersegmental joint dysfunction).  She had 17 treatments over 8 months.  A thermography study was performed of the face before and after treatment and a more symmetrical thermal pattern was obtained.  Her spinal pain reduced.  She also unexpectedly had a return of color vision in her left eye. 

Conclusion: The patient responded favorably to chiropractic care, which resulted in a decrease in spinal pain and improvement in left eye color vision.
