Abstract/Notes

Objective: The purpose of this case report was to describe the chiropractic management of a patient with neck-tongue syndrome (NTS).

Clinical Features: A 34-year-old female patient sought treatment at a chiropractic clinic for symptoms involving neck pain associated with left-sided paresthesia of the tongue that had persisted for >2 years. A diagnosis of NTS was made.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was treated with spinal manipulation, myofascial release, and home exercises. After 2 weeks, she was symptom free. At the 2-year follow-up, the patient remained free of symptoms.

Conclusion: This patient with NTS responded favorably to a course of chiropractic care.
