Chiropractic Care Helps Patient With Parkinson's Disease

According to a study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, chiropractic care helped treat a patient with Parkinson’s disease. A 60-year-old man diagnosed with Parkinson's disease at age 53 was managed with upper cervical chiropractic care for nine months. The study concluded through X-rays and thermal imaging that upper cervical chiropractic care had a successful outcome for the patient. The study went on to state that further investigation into upper cervical injury, as a contributing factor to Parkinson's disease, should be considered.
