Chiropractic Intervention Leads to Resolution of Urinary Retention

How Chiropractic Care Resolved Chronic Urinary Retention in a Groundbreaking Case Study

A recent research study published in the Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research presents a compelling account of a 61-year-old woman who experienced significant relief from non-obstructive urinary retention following chiropractic care aimed at reducing vertebral subluxation. The study, led by Dr. K. Eric Hutchison, highlights the potential of chiropractic interventions in co-managing people traditionally managed through medical or surgical means.

The patient, who suffered from chronic urinary retention unresponsive to conventional medical treatments, underwent a specialized chiropractic treatment regimen. Clinical assessments revealed decreased range of motion (AROM) in the cervical and lumbar regions, severe cervical curve abnormalities, and lumbar scoliosis. These findings pointed to vertebral subluxations, which were meticulously addressed through the Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP®) technique.

Over the course of 60 days and 24 visits, the patient received targeted spinal adjustments, cervical curve traction, and utilized a wobble board. Remarkable improvements were documented through pre and post-X-rays, which showed enhanced cervical curvature and a significant reduction in the Cobb angle of lumbar scoliosis.

By the end of the protocol, the patient not only reported a resolution of her urinary retention issues but also noted substantial alleviation of spinal pain. This case underscores the effectiveness of chiropractic care in restoring spinal health and improving overall bodily functions through the correction of vertebral subluxations.

Dr. Hutchison’s study provides valuable insights into the broader applications of chiropractic care, suggesting that such interventions can significantly enhance patients' quality of life by addressing underlying spinal issues. This research encourages a reevaluation of traditional approaches to non-obstructive urinary retention and similar ailments, advocating for integrative treatment strategies that prioritize spinal health and nerve function.
