Polio has always been a disease which the governments of all around the world were concerned. In most cases, the symptoms of polio starts developing during the childhood age of the persons and massively affect the health of a person. Polio is a contagious disease and has caused epidemic in many places across the world and at many occasions. Before the creation of polio vaccine by Jonas Salk in 1955, polio used to take the lives of many individuals. Vaccination plays an important role to save people from polio as there is virtually no treatment of this disease. However, in the recent studies, it was found that chiropractic treatment showed positive results for the treatment in polio. Chiropractic refers to the system of healing which is mainly based on the theory of mechanical disorder of bones and skeletal system which obstructs the nervous systems.

When a case study of how chiropractic treatment has helped in improving the condition of a 69 year old retired woman was published in June 2006 issue of Clinical Chiropractic, it surprised many. According the case study, the woman was suffering from left hand pain of over 40 years duration with restricted bending of the fingers in her left hand. Due to polio, the muscles of the right arm of the woman affected badly and it was no longer working. She also observed itching in the left hand. There were other health problems and as the condition became serious, the surgeons advised surgery.

At this point, the patient started receiving chiropractic care and over a period of 13 visits, she noticed some improvements. She also noticed the color change of her left hand from white to pink. During the next few days, the patient noticed hand improvement and hand itching discontinuation. The patient’s strength also improved from 11.5kg to 16kg. The patient’s posture was improved, scoliosis was decreased and the gait was improved. When these improvements were observed by the surgeon, he believed that there is no need of surgery.

As a part of the case study, when 500 members answered a survey, it was found that the chiropractors received the highest patient satisfaction ratings and the general practitioners received the lowest. This suggests that chiropractic treatment is the one of the best option for countering conditions related to polio.

Chiropractic Showed Improved Results For Infantile Colic

by Administrator 20. September 2010 09:02

Infantile Colic or simply Colic refers to a situation, where a newly born baby cries frequently or screams for extended hours without any specific reason. This is more commonly found in breastfed and bottle-fed babies and usually gets noticed in the first two weeks after birth. The baby usually cries for more than 3 hours a day and spits up after feeding. The Colic may be caused because the baby’s nervous system is immature, swallows air while feeding and has allergies to some food like milk. The fussiness of crying is alarming for both the parents and the physicians. Therefore, the scientists have always tried to find out how Infantile Colic could be cured.

To know what could be the proper treatment of Colic, scientists at National Health Service in Ballerup in Copenhagen, Denmark conducted a research or study on 50 infants which were diagnosed with Colic. Half of the infants were administered a drug called dimethicon while the rest of them were given Chiropractic treatment. In the study of 50 infants, it was found that the group which was administered drug showed bad results. It was found that after 8 to 10 day of study, the infants who were given Chiropractic therapy improved to 2.7 hours of less crying and the infants on which drugs were administered showed one hour of less crying.

The above mentioned research study was published in December 1998 issue of Country Living's Healthy Living. The article also focused on a case study where a mom whose baby was suffering from Colic describes how her baby got cured with six sessions of 20 minutes with a Chiropractor. This was proved by another recent study conducted in South Africa, where a group of infants who received Chiropractic care recovered upto 93% within the two-week period and Colic was not repeated in any one of them.

These studies around the globe show that Chiropractic therapy is far more useful than using dimethicon drugs to treat Colic in new born babies.
