Clinical Features: A 24 year old Caucasian woman (BMI 40.4) presented for chiropractic consultation and possible care at 26 weeks gestation with her first pregnancy. The patient presented with severe neck pain extending to both shoulders, migraine headaches, and diplopia. During her care, she was diagnosed with a co-morbidity of pseudotumor of the cerebrum.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was cared for with multiple techniques. She attended a total of 14 visits in 5 weeks, and was scheduled for a Caesarean-section delivery at 37 weeks.  Three days after her final visit, the patient’s water broke and she successfully delivered vaginally at 30 weeks gestation.
