Abstract/Notes

Objective: To review the outcome of chiropractic care in the case of a fifteen-year-old female with a history of concussion.

Clinical Features: A fifteen-year-old female presented with constant pain on the top of her head, headache, and difficulty concentrating after being hit on the head by the trunk door of a van. She was diagnosed with a concussion nine days after her initial injury. Two weeks after the diagnosis she sought out chiropractic care for her symptoms.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was given specific spinal adjustments using the Activator technique. After 9 adjustments the patient showed improvement in her symptoms and was tested with the ImPACT concussion test. The patient’s cognitive efficiency index improved from 0.28 (pre injury) to 0.43 (after  9 adjustments).

Conclusion: This case report reviews the benefits of chiropractic care in the management of a patient with concussion. Further research is required to better understand how chiropractic adjustments can help patients suffering from concussion.
