  Title Case study. Restoration of the cervical curve and improvement in neurological function in a patient following Network Spinal Analysis [case report]
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2011 Summer;2011(3):Online access only p 99-103
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the restoration of a cervical curve following Network Spinal Analysis™ (NSA) chiropractic care in a patient with neck pain.

Clinical Features:  The patient presented with a chief complaint of neck pain.  Radiographs were taken and demonstrated an Atlas Plane Angle measurement of 12° and a cervical Absolute Rotation Angle (ARA) of 10°, representing a cervical kyphosis.

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient received NSA care that consisted of Network adjustments entailing light contact to specific regions of the patient’s spine.  Follow up radiographs were taken after one year of care.  The radiographs demonstrated significant sagittal curve improvement with an Atlas plane line measurement of 32° and an Absolute Rotational Angle (ARA) of -27°.

Conclusion:  Successful chiropractic care was described in this case by improved measurements in the cervical curve.   The Atlas plane line improved by 18° and the Absolute Rotation Angle improved by 37°.  More research is warranted in this area.  Link to PDF version
