Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the management of a 15-year-old male who suffered a fall and was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome and whiplash.

Clinical Features: A 15-year-old male experienced a frontal impact injury to the head. He sought chiropractic care for the management of neck pain, dizziness and headache 1 week after his injury. Intervention and Outcome: Manual therapy included high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) chiropractic spinal manipulation (SMT) and soft-tissue therapy. Cervical stretches were provided. The patient had a total of 10 treatments over a period of 8-weeks. Additional recommendations included nutritional supplementation, increased hydration, referral for acupuncture and monitoring by a concussion clinic.

Conclusion: This case study demonstrates improvements in post-concussion symptoms and whiplash in a 15-year-old male following chiropractic care. Further research is required to investigate the effects of chiropractic treatment on post-concussion syndrome.
