Abstract/Notes

Objective: To review outcomes of upper cervical chiropractic care on a patient with fibromyalgia.

Clinical Features: The patient was a 64 year old woman with the chief complaint of fibromyalgia diagnosed 6 years before presentation. She also had complaints of sleep apnea, loss of coordination, glaucoma, degenerative disc disease, and changes in bowel habits. After a thorough examination was done, it was determined that the patient had an upper cervical subluxation of C1. This was determined by cervical radiographs, paraspinal thermography, prone leg length analysis, and postural assessment.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient received Knee Chest Upper Cervical care for three months and at the time of this study had 80 percent relief of symptoms and an improvement in energy level.

Conclusions: Although no definite conclusions can be drawn from one single case study, this study does show improvement of a patient presenting with fibromyalgia syndrome. This study does warrant the need for a larger study such as a randomized controlled clinical trial to further understand the benefits of chiropractic on those with fibromyalgia.
