  Title Chiropractic cranial treatment model and neuroplasticity in a post stroke 72-year-old male: A case report
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2021 ;2(2):1-7
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

This case report discusses an elderly male patient suffering from post stroke disabilities who sought chiropractic interdisciplinary care and neuro-rehabilitation to facilitate neuroplasticity and recovery of prior muscle function, improve ease of activities of daily living, and his return to work. Of interest is the concept that neurological function can recover even in the presence of anatomical structural pathology, such as brain damage or infarct secondary to stroke.

The successful rehabilitation of this stroke patient gives both the clinician and general population hope that neuroplasticity can take place in all age groups, particularly the elderly. Theoretically this type of treatment may also be used in wellness health care protocols to prevent neuro-degeneration of brain tissue. Further research should be performed to determine if there might be specific subsets of elderly patients suffering post stroke symptomatology that might have greater neuroplasticity stimulated with chiropractic and neuro-rehabilitative care.
