CASE STUDIES: Alzheimers Disease

Please note: Case studies summarizing patientsí responses to care are intended for educational purposes only and do not imply a guarantee of benefit. Individual results may vary, depending upon several factors including age of the patient, severity of the condition, severity of the spinal injury, and duration of time the condition has been present.

Female, Age 65, Alzheimer's disease, Cortical Blindness

This 65-year-old female suffered from cortical blindness (visual loss due to malfunction of occipital lobe in the brain) for 8 years and Alzheimer's disease for 6 years prior to upper cervical care. The cognitive disability due to Alzheimer's had worsened continually over the 6 years.

During this patient's upper cervical exam, an upper neck injury was found, most likely stemming from a rollover car accident (during her high school years) or due to years of competitive skiing (she suffered many falls). The upper neck injury was compromising her brain's function. During the first month of upper cervical care, visual improvements were noticed-- she commented often to her husband about seeing things she hadn't seen before such as the neighbor's flower garden and new furniture in her house. In addition, her personality, communication skills, and cognitive skills improved. Friends and family members remarked how much better able she was to communicate. She talked more, carried on conversations, interacted with others, told stories, appeared much more alert and interested, and understood and could answer questions. Five months later, her improvements continued and she had no further worsening of Alzheimer's or visual loss.
