Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2010 Sep;40(3):109-116
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Objectives: To observe the progress of a patient with chronic headache after whiplash and other injuries during and following applied kinesiology (AK)-guided chiropractic and cranial evaluation and treatment.

Clinical Features: Single 56-year old patient suffering severe daily cervico-cranial headaches following 2 automobile accidents, despite 7 years of manipulative, chiropractic, physical therapy, psychotherapy, narcotic, and medical treatments.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient underwent a series of AK muscle weakness tests which directed mobilisations and manipulations in the cranial, cervical, pelvic, and plantar regions over 8 visits during a 3-week period. During and following this intervention, virtually all symptomatology was resolved with the score of 0 on the neck and low back pain visual analog scales (VAS).The patient has remained free of her original symptoms for 8 years following these treatments.

Conclusions: The manual muscle testing (MMT) procedures used in this patient’s care offered useful information directly linking the assessment procedures to the treatment method that provided long-term resolution of her chronic musculoskeletal dysfunction and pain.
