Objective: This case described the resolution of post-traumatic anosmia in a 58-year-old female under Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) care.
Clinical Features: The patient, a 58-year-old single woman, presented to a private practice for high blood pressure and symptoms occurring from a car accident a month prior to initial visit. Her symptoms included right shoulder, right scapular and mid-back pain. The patient also noted a loss in sense of smell nine years prior, after a previous auto accident.
Intervention & Outcome: The patient was under NSA care for 84 patient visits. There were improvements in anosmia after five months of continuous care.
Conclusion: This case describes the successful resolution of anosmia following Network Spinal Analysis care. Although this was the only form of healthcare the patient was receiving over the course of care, the relationship between Network Spinal Analysis chiropractic care and anosmia is unknown and requires further research.
