  Title Chiropractic management of a patient with cerebellar atrophy [case report]
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2017 ;45(2):Online access only p 175-183
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the chiropractic management of a patient with cerebellar atrophy.

Clinical Presentation: A 38-year-old female sought care for cerebellar atrophy of her left cerebellar lobe. She had cognitive difficulties, nystagmus in certain head positions, vertigo, difficulty with fine movement patterns, and balance issues, all of which affected her day-to-day life.

Intervention and Outcome: She was treated with neurological exercises primarily targeting her left cerebellum as well as its neurological pathways, in conjunction with chiropractic manipulative therapy. Within 3 weeks of treatment, she saw reduction in her symptoms and improvement in her condition, which caused her to have a more positive outlook for her future.

Conclusion: For this particular patient, the use of chiropractic care and functional neurology appeared to help with her signs and symptoms. Her response to treatment plateaued after 3 months of treatment as she later began to miss appointments due to external stressors.
