CDAHK, the largest Chiropractic Professional body in Hong Kong is pleased to announce important research has taken place with reference to Myelofibrosis (MF) which is a rare hematological disease.
Myelofibrosis which is a serious bone marrow disorder that disrupts the body’s normal production of blood cells affects people over the age of 60, although there have been reports of younger people being affected.
The research found there are potential benefits of integrating chiropractic into a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care. This research is very important especially due to the limited therapies available.
A case study was used for the research which was a 58-year old man who had MF for several years.
A spokesman for CDAHK explained: The main therapies available offer limited curative benefits. The Case study involved a 58-year-old man old man presented with MF for several years and had undergone splenectomy and targeted therapy with ruxolitinib. During the last 3 years of his life, he suffered from intractable bone pain that was resistant to medical, analgesic and physical therapies. However, significant pain alleviation was achieved shortly after starting chiropractic treatment. Patient’s condition continued to deteriorate and he died of septic complications.”
“Conclusions: Bone and joint pain is the common symptom of cancer. This report highlights the potential benefits of integrating chiropractic into a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care”, explained the spokesman.
