Abstract/Notes Objective: The purpose of the paper is to describe the care of a patient with fibromyalgia and an upper cervical subluxation.

Clinical Features: A 45 year old female presented for chiropractic care. Her history included two major traumas and 10 car accidents leading to complaints of an 11 year history of fibromyalgia. Other complaints included migraine headaches, chronic neck pain, upper and lower back pain, numbness in fingers, sciatica, right knee pain, depression, and duodenal ulcer.

Intervention and Outcomes: Upon examination the patient had an upper cervical subluxation determined by x-ray and pattern analysis. Upon correction of the upper cervical subluxation utilizing a specific knee chest technique, the patient experienced resolution of fibromyalgia as well as most of the concurrent complaints.

Conclusions: This paper described successful upper cervical chiropractic care in the case of a patient with fibromyalgia. More research is warranted on upper cervical chiropractic management of those with fibromyalgia. PDF version
