Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To demonstrate the concussion management process directed by a chiropractor describing how spinal manipulation and targeted rehabilitation aided in the recovery and return-to-play process of a student athlete.

Clinical Features: A 17-year-old male sustained a concussion while playing football.

Intervention and Outcome: Multimodal chiropractic intervention including spinal manipulation therapy, myofascial release, instrument-assisted soft tissue technique, and target home exercises were provided over the course of a 4-week treatment plan. Ongoing assessment in the form of the SCAT-5 and ImPACT testing were also used during the management period. At the conclusion of care, his symptoms resolved, his neurocognitive scores had returned to baseline, and he returned to play.

Conclusion: This case study demonstrates an improvement of concussion-related symptoms in a 17-year-old football player receiving chiropractic care and individualized management. Chiropractic care may offer an active approach to concussion management and treatment to expedite recovery and patient outcomes.
