An adjustment was made using a toggle set, high-velocity, low-amplitude force on the site of subluxation. The patient reported a decrease in the severity of tremors immediately following the adjustment. After 21 visits during a span of over 5 months the patient reported an improvement of 99% for the head tremors, 75% for his arm tremors and 60% increase in quality of life.
