Abstract/Notes

Objective: The aim of this case report is to describe the response of a patient with chronic pain who received chiropractic care in a federally qualified health center.

Clinical Features: A 61-year-old female patient with neck and back pain after a traumatic motor vehicle accident 3 years prior was referred for chiropractic care. She had neck pain, low back pain, knee pain, and pain associated with over 20 surgeries, as well as depression, opioid dependence, and low quality of life.

Interventions and Outcomes: The patient was treated with chiropractic manipulation for her low back and neck pain and was counseled on nutrition and exercise. After 6 months, she reported improvements in pain, improved quality of life, and discontinuation of opioid pain medication.

Conclusion: This patient improved after a course of chiropractic care that was integrated into a federally qualified health center.
