Journal J Acad Chiropr Orthoped (JACO). 2015 Mar;12(1):Online access only p 1-5
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Introduction: This paper presents a case report of chiropractic management of a patient with thoracic outlet syndrome.

Case Presentation: A 65 year old male was treated with spinal manipulation for intermittent bilateral hand numbness and paresthesia.

Management and Outcome: The patient’s pain was measured utilizing a Numeric Rating Scale and orthopedic testing was used to monitor for arterial insufficiency. Manipulation of the cervical spine was performed manually. Following the fourth visit, the patient reported complete resolution of pain and paresthesia in the extremities.

Conclusion: In this case a patient with thoracic outlet syndrome was successfully treated with chiropractic care. In light of multiple anecdotal reports showing positive outcomes further study is warranted to evaluate the treatment of this common disorder.
