Abstract/Notes Objective: To review features of a 52-year-old man diagnosed with bipolar disorder who presented for chiropractic care displaying symptoms of anxiety and hemichorea movements.

Clinical Features: The bipolar patient sought care for low back pain, while displaying depression with episodic anxiety attacks associated with hemichorea.

Intervention and Outcome: He was adjusted using Thompson Technique protocol and advised on the benefits of omegea-3 fatty acids. After 4 visits, the hemichorea associated with his anxiety attacks had subsided, and his depressed state had improved.

Conclusion: This case is important on many levels. It suggests that chiropractic care may have a positive effect on bipolar disorder and chorea movements. Further research is needed to investigate the effects of chiropractic on bipolar disorder and hemichorea.
