Abstract/Notes

Objective: To present a case of the alleviation of chronic headaches and neck pain following restoration of anterior to posterior symmetry to the cervico-thoracic spine, posture and subluxation using Chiropractic Biophysics Technique (CBP) & Berry Translation Traction.

Clinical Features: A 55-year old female patient presented with chronic headaches as well as neck and shoulder pain. Examination and radiography revealed forward head posture and lateral head translation posture consistent with vertebral subluxation.

Intervention & Outcome: The patient received CBP care including mirror image corrective exercises, adjustments and traction. Full spine spinal adjustments and drop table adjustments were given. After 36 visits over 12 weeks, she reported complete resolution of her headaches and neck pain. Cervical x-ray showed complete restoration of symmetry in the laterality of her head posture.

Conclusion: Our case and others suggest that correcting lateral head shift postures by CBP Berry translation traction methods may restore the symmetry of the AP cervicothoracic spine and posture alignment and improve neck pain and headache symptoms.
