  Title Improvement in motor strength, balance and dysautonomia in a male stroke survivor following the assessment and correction of vertebral subluxation: A case study [case report]
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2019 Dec;2019():166-170
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To document the improvement in motor strength and balance in a 40-year-old male stroke survivor following Torque Release Technique (TRT) and Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (AMCT) for the assessment and correction of vertebral subluxation.

Clinical Features: A 40-year-old male with a 7-year history of right-sided lower limb motor weakness following an ischemic stroke. Postural alterations, reduced right-sided L2-3 motor strength and altered balance were found in conjunction with indicators of vertebral subluxation throughout the spine.

Intervention and Outcome: Chiropractic care using TRT and AMCT was provided for the assessment and correction of vertebral subluxation. The patient reported subjective improvement in strength and balance. Objective improvement in posture, motor strength, balance, and surface electromyography and thermography studies were recorded.

Conclusion: A course of chiropractic care using TRT and AMCT for the assessment and correction of vertebral subluxation was associated with improvement in motor function and balance in a 40-year-old male following an ischemic stroke. This case provides supporting evidence that stroke survivors may benefit from chiropractic care.
