Clinical Features: The first patient was a 30-year-old man who had indigestion, low back pain, and a spondylolisthesis L5/S1. His examination indicated a C1 subluxation. The second patient was a 27-year-old man with chronic sinusitis, headaches, nervousness, and insomnia. His examination revealed an atlas subluxation. The third patient, a 39-year-old woman, complained of joint pain, depression, nearsightedness, headaches, difficulty breathing, and allergies. Her examination displayed findings consistent with a C1 subluxation.
Intervention and Outcome: All three patients received the upper cervical knee-chest procedure described in this paper. These patients demonstrated correction of their upper cervical subluxation via pre and post Blair protracto x-ray views, spinal thermography, and pelvic balance leg length equality examinations.
Conclusion: The findings of these case studies indicate the upper cervical knee-chest procedure is a successful method for correcting the upper cervical subluxation.
