Journal J Upper Cervical Chiropr Res. 2015 Summer;2015(3):Online access only p 30-33
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the upper cervical chiropractic care of a patient with a 13 year diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis.

Clinical Features: A 49-year-old woman with multiple sclerosis presented to an upper cervical chiropractic office. Her chief complaints included neck pain, difficultly writing, fatigue, and head instability in addition to multiple other complaints. Upon examination it was determined that she had an upper cervical subluxation through x-ray and paraspinal thermal analysis.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was adjusted according to Knee Chest Upper Cervical protocol over the course of one year and seven months. The patient had a decrease in all presenting symptoms and an increase in quality of life following care.

Conclusions: Although no formal conclusions can be reached from a single case study, this study does show how a patient with MS benefitted from upper cervical chiropractic care. Upper cervical chiropractic care should be researched further on a larger scale, such as randomized clinical trials to further exam its role in benefitting those with multiple sclerosis.
