  Title Structural changes in the cervical spine following spinal adjustments in a patient with os odontoideum: A case report
Journal J Vert Sublux Res. 1996 ;1(1):37-40
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

A five year old caucasian male presented for chiropractic care in June, 1989. Initial examination disclosed a ventrally flexed cervico-thoracic posture and restricted respiration. Radiographic examination revealed an os odontoideum with accompanying ventro-flexion of the atlas relative to occiput and axis, as well as anterior displacement of the atlas relative to the axis. Over a period of three years, while under care of the author, a specific conservative chiropractic adjustment regimen for the correction of vertebral subluxation was administered to the patient. During that period, the patient exhibited a substantial change in head and shoulder carriage. Pre and post adjustment radiographs revealed the formation of a cervical lordotic curve and realignment of the atlas relative to the occiput and the axis. The patient has remained under care, to date, for the correction of vertebral subluxation.
