The effects of chiropractic on the amelioration of symptoms associated with Systemic Lupus Erythematosis. Goldstone AS, Bashore RE, Ferguson AC. Chiropractic Technique, 1992; 4:87-89.

From the abstract:

Two case studies demonstrate how the patients received relief of symptomatology associated with systemic lupus erythematosis through chiropractic care.

Patient #1 was a 41-year-old-woman with headache, neck stiffness and low back pain. Most adjustments were to C2, T4 and L3 and right SI. Symptoms have decreased tremendously and patient reports a much lower level of fatigue.

Patient #2 presented a 3 year history of neck pain, headache and right leg pain. Had been diagnosed as having SLE five years prior. Examination revealed loss of sensation in the face, arms and hands, along with vertigo when rising from a seated to a standing position.

After 14 months of active care, neck pain, headache and the right leg pain were reduced to the point of mere residual discomfort.
