Objective: The objective of this case series is to detail improvement of two patients suffering from premature ventricular contractions, PVC’s, while under chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: Two female patients presented to a private practice with complaints of PVC and other symptoms. Following history, each patient was assessed for vertebral subluxations using instrumentation, radiographs, and video fluoroscopy following the Pierce Results System of analysis. Vertebral subluxations were found in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spinal regions.

Intervention & Outcomes: Chiropractic care was individualized to each patient. They were adjusted according to the Pierce Results System , while incorporating no other therapies or modalities. Each showed resolution of the PVC’s and improvement in other symptomatology.
