Abstract/Notes

Objective: To report the resolution of a cervical kyphosis and an improvement of migraines in a pediatric patient using the Pierce Results System™.

Clinical Features: A 12-year old girl presented with complaints of severe migraines for the last 6 years.  Previous chiropractic care had not helped her.  The patient suffered from migraines 3x/wk and had missed over 2 months of school due to the pain.  Videofluoroscopic examination of the cervical spine revealed a -45cm kyphosis. On cervical flexion, a C1 and C6 lock was noted and upon cervical extension T1 and T2 were locked.  

Intervention and Outcomes: Chiropractic care was administered over 6 visits and included thermal scanning, radiographs, videofluoroscopy, toggle set instrument adjusting and pressure adjustments based on the Nimmo-Tonus Technique.  The patient demonstrated a significant improvement in her cervical curve upon review of a follow up videofluoroscopic examination and her migraines were resolved.

Conclusion: The patient experienced subjective and objective improvement from the Pierce Results System™ during chiropractic care.  Further research is recommended.
