Abstract/Notes

Objective: To provide a detailed report of a patient with idiopathic scoliosis under upper cervical chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A 10 year old female presented to a private chiropractic practice with a chief complaint of migraine headache and a 35 degree thoracolumbar scoliosis.

Intervention and Outcomes: Six upper cervical adjustments were delivered over a period of 11 visits and 25 weeks. A 10 degree reduction in scoliotic curve was found and confirmed by an independent medical radiologist.

Conclusion: The upper cervical subluxation may be a contributing factor to idiopathic scoliosis. Reduction of the subluxation with specific vectored correction may help reduce curvatures in the thoracic and lumbar spine. More research is warranted investigating the effects of upper cervical care and idiopathic scoliosis.
