Abstract: A 25-year old female presented for chiropractic care to address her postural concerns. She described herself as ‘healthy but fatigued.

Intervention/Outcomes: Following a course of chiropractic care, objective findings confirmed a reduction in forward head carriage, an increase in pelvic stability, and was concomitant with patient reported increases in sleep quality, energy, vitality, and immune function (i.e. resistance to coughs, colds and flus)
Conclusion: In this case, an improvement in sleep, energy, vitality, and immunity was concomitant with a course of chiropractic care.
