Resolution of Headaches & Neck Pain in a 59-Year-Old Male with Rheumatoid Arthritis Undergoing Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care: A Case Report
A ChiroSecure Research Report
ABSTRACT: To review the positive health outcomes of a patient with rheumatoid arthritis experiencing headaches and neck pain undergoing upper cervical chiropractic care.
A 59-year-old male presented to a private chiropractic practice with a chief complaint of headaches, neck pain, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Eight upper cervical adjustments were delivered over a period of 12 visits in 10.5 weeks. Complete resolution of headaches and neck pain were reported by the patient following the first adjustment and the patient was able to discontinue his medication.
The upper cervical subluxation may be a contributing factor to rheumatoid arthritis-related pain. Reduction of the subluxation with specific vectored correction may help reduce pain not only in the head and neck, but throughout the entire body in people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. More research is warranted investigating the effects of upper cervical care and rheumatoid arthritis.
