Research: CASO has written a case report

Listed in Issue 103

Abstract

CASO has written a case report on the evaluation of Chapman's neurolymphatic reflexes via kinesiology in a patient with low back pain and congenital intestinal abnormality.

Background

The report elaborates on the theoretical foundation of Chapman's neurolymphatic reflexes and their kinesiologic evaluation, and describes their application in a case of unusual congenital bowel abnormality with chronic low back pain.

Methodology

The patient had chronic low back pain. Radiographs of the lower spine were normal. MRI showed a mild protrusion of the disk at L5. Oral analgesics, local injection with steroid, and chiropractic manipulation provided little relief. The patient's intestinal abnormality, diagnosed when he was a child, was thought to be unconnected to the back pain. An applied kinesiology examination was performed.

Results

The analysis of Chapman's neurolymphatic reflexes, coupled with an evaluation of the traditional acupuncture meridians, indicated the need for treatment of the large bowel. Stimulation of these reflexes by the patient at home was prescribed. This resulted in a resolution of the low back pain, as well as in improved bowel function.

Conclusion

The remarkable outcome from the application of this relatively simple diagnostic and therapeutic procedure could be a thought-provoking impulse for further study and clinical application.

Comment

This single case study illustrates how a kinesiology test and prescribed treatments were able to relieve a patient's low back pain as well as improve his bowel function. This individual had previously been subjected to MRI scans, oral analgesics, local injection with steroid, and chiropractic manipulation with little relief.
