Successful Treatment of Neck Stiffness and Tremors
This patient is a 56 year old male machinist with shoulder and forearm pain and weakness and neck stiffness. He also presented with signs for Parkinson type symptoms with tremors and rigidity of movement. After 3 wks of treatment his shaking improved 90%, his mobility in his neck returned to Normal and he regained his grip strength.
We employed: Homeopathic L-Dopa, Chiropractic Manipulation, Neuromuscular education technique, exercise education, and elimination of food and beverage stressors for four weeks.
The pain went from 8 out of 10 to 2 out of 10 on the pain scale. After 4 weeks (4 treatments) this patient has stabilized and can work a full day without complaints for approximately 1 week before symptoms of neck and shoulder pain start to return. His tremors are gone.
This patient is very happy and has taken a more responsible role in his own health. He wants to maintain or improve his feeling of well-being and returns on a 1 x weekly visit regimen for chiropractic treatment.
