Publication Type Case Report

Objective:  To report on the positive health outcomes following chiropractic in a young man with food intolerances.

Clinical Features: A 24-year-old male presented with low back pain and food intolerances to wheat, garlic, onion, and dairy.  History included hospitalization due to digestive issues, abdominal pain, bloated abdomen, excessive hunger, and depression caused by food intolerance.

Intervention and Outcomes:  After completion of history, physical examination, and spinographs, the patient underwent chiropractic care via Blair upper cervical technique.  The patient’s spinographs noted misalignments at C1 and C5 vertebrae.  On the patient’s ninth visit, three months under care, he had no digestive related issues and was able to eat foods that were previously deemed intolerant.

Conclusion: This case reports on the resolution of food intolerances following upper cervical chiropractic care. Further research in this area is warranted.
