It’s Not Just A Back Thing

A case report published in the prestigious Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics supports the notion that chiropractic’s benefits may go well beyond musculoskeletal pain. In this report, a 2-year old girl suffering from Myasthenia Gravis, an autoimmune condition resulting in fatigue and weakness of the muscles, seemed to have significantly benefited from chiropractic care. The diagnosis was made by both a pediatrician and medical neurologist. After 5 months of chiropractic care, all symptoms had disappeared. While this does not suggest chiropractic is a treatment for Myasthenia Gravis, it does support the belief that chiropractic care has benefits far beyond basic back problems.
