  Title Chiropractic adjustment to the cervical spine and the Arnold-Chiari malformation [case report]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1993 Oct;16(8):550-555
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

OBJECTIVE: To present two cases in which patients with Type I Arnold-Chiari malformation (ACM) were treated with adjustments to the cervical spine for conditions unrelated to the anomaly.

CLINICAL FEATURES: The ACM is an anomaly of central nervous system development in which structures from the posterior fossa descend below the level of the foramen magnum.

INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: The patients reported were adjusted multiple times to the cervical spine. No ill effects or complications were noted related to the ACM.

CONCLUSIONS: Asymptomatic Type I ACM is not necessarily a contraindication to skilled adjustments to the cervical spine.
