Cancer and Chiropractic

An article published in the January 2001 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics followed two case studies of patients with various types of serious cancer. The article examined the role of chiropractic care in improving the quality of life of cancer patients. 

The first patient was a 57-year-old man with serious terminal pancreatic cancer. He received chiropractic care during the later stages of the disease. The chiropractic care was able to provide significant pain relief, reduce the amount of pain medication being taken (as well as the potential side effects), and temporarily improve the quality of life for a patient with terminal cancer.

The second patient was a 54-year-old man recovering from surgery for lung cancer. He was suffering from upper back pain for over one year. After the patient started on the chiropractic care, he experienced immediate relief and was able to discontinue all pain medication after two chiropractic visits.

Obviously, the sample is very small to make a generalized conclusion as to the effectiveness of chiropractic care in improving the quality of life of cancer patients. But the results are very encouraging.
