Abstract/Notes Chiropractors regularly assess and provide treatment for a variety of neuromuscular complaints. Many of these respond well to conservative care however some represent conditions that must be referred for further evaluation. This article chronicles the management of a patient who presented with upper limb weakness and was subsequently diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Chiropractors should be informed of the nature and presentation of this disease to facilitate early diagnosis and treatment.
Les chiropraticiens évaluent régulièrement et offrent des traitements pour diverses douleurs neuromusculaires. La plupart de ces douleurs réagissent bien au traitement conservateur, mais certaines constituent des états pathologiques nécessitant un examen plus approfondi. Cet article explique la gestion d’un patient qui présentait une faiblesse des membres supérieurs, et pour qui l’on a émis un diagnostic de sclérose latérale amyotrophique (SLA). Les chiropraticiens doivent être informés de la nature et de l’aspect de cette maladie afin de faciliter le diagnostic hâtif et le traitement de cette maladie.
