Objective: To report the case of an elderly male with depressive and anxiety symptoms which improved while under chiropractic care for chronic shoulder and neck pain. 

Clinical Features: A 58-year-old male with shoulder and neck pain sought chiropractic care.  Past history revealed two major car accidents that involved hospitalizations.  Concurrently, the patient had many symptoms related to his depression and anxiety, such as poor concentration, irritability, lethargy, panic attacks, and heart palpitations.  The patient scored 46 on the Beck Depression Inventory-II, which indicates severe depression. 

Interventions and Outcomes:  The patient was seen 3 times per week for 3 months using Diversified technique to address vertebral subluxations.  Improvement in quality of life was documented.

Conclusions:  The progress documented in this case suggests that chiropractic adjustments along with ancilarry procedures decreased the patient’s shoulder and neck pain as well as his depressive and anxiety symptoms. Link to PDF version
