Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2019 Jun;2019():79-82
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of a patient presenting with chronic spinal pain and migraine headaches.

Clinical Features: A 52-year-old woman presented for care with a chief complaint of migraine headaches and left-sided spinal pain that radiated to the ipsilateral lower and upper extremities of 20+ years duration. Prescription medication provided moderate relief at best and not surprisingly, her quality of life was compromised in terms of her activities of daily living.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was cared for with the Gonstead Technique consisting at three times per week for 5 weeks with dramatic improvements in her migraine headaches and spinal pain with radiculopathy.

Conclusion: This case report provides supporting evidence on the effectiveness of chiropractic care in the patients presenting with migraine headaches and atypically presenting spinal pain.
