Glaucoma and Chiropractic


The July / August 2000 edition of the Journal Of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics contained a case study of how a patient with glaucoma was helped by chiropractic. A 25 year old woman who went to a chiropractor for back pain. She was also suffering from congenital glaucoma that had severely affected her vision. 

A comprehensive ophthalmologic examination before the initiation of the chiropractic care showed that the patient had severe eyesight impairment due to her congenital condition.

Almost immediately after she started on her chiropractic care, (one visit), the patient noticed an improvement in eyesight. After four adjustments, the patients monocular visual field had increased from approximately 2% to approximately 20% of normal. Although the patient would never regain total eyesight, the ten-fold improvement in just one week was very significant.

Although several other reports of this type have been made by chiropractors in their practices, this case was unique because it was verified by an ophthalmologic examination performed by an independent medical ophthalmic surgeon before, and after the treatment.Although the sample size of 1 is not sufficient to conclude anything statistically, the results are certainly very encouraging.
