  Title Normalization of serum creatinine levels, estimated glomerular filtration rate & dysautonomia following chiropractic care to reduce vertebral subluxation: A case report & review of the literature [case report; review]
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2020 Dec;2020():171-177
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To report on the positive health outcomes and physiological changes pertaining to kidney function occurring following chiropractic care.

Clinical Feature: 42-year-old male with complaints of neck pain, low back pain and right pelvic pain. Blood analysis showed elevated serum creatinine levels and decreased glomerular filtration rate. Paraspinal thermal scanning demonstrated dysautonomia.

Intervention and Outcome: Low-force, instrument assisted chiropractic care utilizing Torque Release Technique (TRT) aimed at removing vertebral subluxations through the assessment of the spinal-dural-neural unit. Patient reported an improvement in all pain complaints, paraspinal thermography showed reduction in dysautonomia. The patient also experienced a reduction in serum creatinine levels and improved glomerular filtration rate following 6 months of care.

Conclusion: Improvements in the patient’s subjective complaints, as well as objective thermography, and blood analysis were seen while receiving chiropractic care. Further research is encouraged to explore the role of chiropractic management in these patients.
