Abstract/Notes

Objective: The objective of this study is to evaluate and discuss the effect of knee-chest upper cervical chiropractic care on a 32-year-old female patient with fibromyalgia syndrome and concurrent symptoms.

Clinical Features: The patient was 32-year old female who suffered with extreme fatigue, pain, and depression due to fibromyalgia syndrome. The patient experienced a rapid decline in health and vitality. The patient sought chiropractic care two years after the onset.

Intervention & Outcomes: After performing a case history, physical examination and chiropractic evaluation it was determined that the patient had a subluxation of the C1 (atlas) vertebra. The patient received knee-chest upper cervical chiropractic care for a period of six months, in which she was evaluated 41 times. She was checked for indicators of vertebral subluxation during every visit and was adjusted eight times over the course of care. The patient reported a complete resolution of her fibromyalgia symptoms.

Conclusion: The findings presented in this case study suggest that upper cervical chiropractic adjustments may benefit patients who suffer from fibromyalgia syndrome.
