  Title Chiropractic management of a 30-year-old patient with Parsonage-Turner syndrome [case report]
Journal J Chiropr Med. 2011 Dec;10(4):301-305
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objectives: The purpose of this case report is to describe the chiropractic management of a patient presenting with right arm paralysis and a diagnosis of Parsonage-Turner syndrome.

Clinical Features: After receiving nerve entrapment release surgery, a 30-year-old man presented with a right arm contracture, atrophy, and weakness with general paralysis of the forearm and index finger of 6 weeks' duration.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was provided chiropractic care that included high-velocity/low-amplitude spinal manipulation based upon applied kinesiology manual muscle testing, soft tissue trigger point therapy, exercises, and stretches. The patient demonstrated improvement in range of motion after the first treatment session. By the eighth treatment, he was able to fully straighten his arm. Three years later, the patient reported that he was able to do mountain climbing and that his arm was fully functional and pain-free.

Conclusion: For this patient, chiropractic care seemed to be successful in relieving his right arm paralysis and restoring normal arm movement.
