Objective:  To describe the chiropractic care of a patient with scoliosis and reduced cervical curve.

Clinical Features: A 21 year old female presented with a left 14„a thoracic scoliosis, a right 13„a lumbar scoliosis and reduced cervical curve.  She also complained of back pain.

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient was managed utilizing Diversified adjusting protocol.  In addition, Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) mirror image re-education and traction techniques were utilized on every visit along with postural exercises.  After three months of care, re-examination and radiographs revealed improvement of postural, structural and functional goals.

Conclusion: Chiropractic care with CBP methods showed a reduction in structural and postural alteration of a patient with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.  Further investigative studies need to be conducted using chiropractic care with CBP and related chiropractic methods.

Author Keywords: scoliosis, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, chiropractic, CBP mirror image, traction, subluxation, exercise and rehabilitation
