Chiropractic care can help with many different types of problems. You do not have to see a chiropractor just specifically for your back. People can see chiropractors for headaches, ear infections, fibromyalgia, sciatica, or just overall wellness visits and adjustments. Some choose to seek chiropractic care for very specific health problems, hoping to find a more natural and holistic type of treatment. The study outlined below is a perfect example of a very specific problem that was treated with chiropractic care instead of prescription medications. The results are amazing!
Cervical dystonia, also called spasmodic torticollis, is a painful condition in which your neck muscles contract involuntarily, causing your head to twist or turn to one side. Cervical dystonia can also cause your head to uncontrollably tilt forward or backward. In this study a 59 year old woman with cervical dystonia was treated using chiropractic and other alternative medicine interventions to see what the outcome would be.
The woman in the study had an 11-year history of cervical dystonia. She had an uncontrollable 60° leftward head rotation upon shutting her eyes and had spasmodic contractions that caused fatigue. The woman was treated at a chiropractic clinic with reflex therapy, eye exercises, muscle/joint vibrations, and spinal manipulation. Chiropractic adjustments were applied to the second cervical vertebrae. Within the first week of treatment, she had a reduction in symptoms and improved posture!
