CASE STUDY

 

Resolution of Vulvodynia Following Chiropractic Care Using Chiropractic Biophysics & Diversified Techniques: A Case Report
 
Curtis Fedorchuk, DC & David Bak, DC
 

Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research ~ January 15, 2015 ~ Pages 1-8

 

Abstract


Objective:  This case report describes the conservative management of a female complaining of vaginal pain that is radiating to her low back.  The explanation of how chiropractic adjustments can be beneficial to someone suffering from vulvodynia will also be addressed.

 

Clinical Features:  A 50-year-old female patient presented with pain involving the internal and external vaginal organs.  Various medical specialists prior to chiropractic were unable to determine neither the cause of her pain nor its origin.

 

Intervention & Outcomes:  Chiropractic Biophysics Analysis and adjusting methods were administered to remove subluxation indicators throughout her spine.  Diversified Technique uses contact-specific, high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts to deliver an adjustment.  The patient reported having a decrease in intra-vaginal and extra-vaginal pain after chiropractic care.

 

Conclusion:  The results from this case study demonstrate the possibility of chiropractic care having a significant beneficial impact on vulvodynia.  Resolution of the patient’s symptoms was obtained along with objective findings showing a decrease in subluxation indicators.  The locations of the subluxations are possibly responsible for the originating cause of vaginal pain known as vulvodynia.
