The purpose of the case study is to document the effectiveness of chiropractic and CBP structural rehabilitation on a patient with urinary incontinence and vertebral subluxations. Our patient, was a 63 year old female presented with a recent history of urinary incontinence and pain. The problem started before seeking chiropractic care. Radiographs revealed a kyphotic/hypolordic cervical spine, laterally translated cervical spine, anterior head carriage along with a laterally translated lumbar spine and vertebral subluxations. The patient was managed for twenty two visits over 54 days. Care included chiropractic adjustments, postural correction exercises, spinal traction, cryotherapy and stretching. Static posture and x-ray radiographs were used to determine what exercises and traction were needed following Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) protocol. X-ray radiographs, motion palpation and static palpation were used to determine the location of chiropractic adjustments. Throughout care there was a complete resolution of urinary incontinence, correction of spinal alignment closer to the accepted normal value and almost a complete resolution of pain. This case shows improvement in subject and objective measurements after conservative chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments along with spinal correction, and exercises following CBP protocol may benefit patients experiencing urinary incontinence.
