Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To present a case of the alleviation of chronic headaches and neck pain following a multimodal rehabilitation program aimed at improving the cervical lordosis by mirror image exercises, adjustments, and cervical extension traction as part of Chiropractic BioPhysics® technique.

Clinical Features: A 29-year old female suffered from late whiplash syndrome featuring chronic headaches, neck pain, and many other bodily symptoms. The patient failed to respond to previous traditional chiropractic and physiotherapy treatment following her collision 13 years prior. Radiography revealed upper cervical kyphosis.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient received Chiropractic BioPhysics mirror image® corrective exercises and cervical extension traction. Spinal manipulative therapy and drop table adjustments were also given. After 36 treatments over 15 weeks, the patient reported reduced post-concussion syndrome-related neck pain and headaches as well as improvement in many other bodily functions. Post-cervical x-ray showed marked improvement of the cervical lordosis. A one-year follow-up indicated a slight regression of cervical posture with minimal treatment, though she remained well despite having a recent pregnancy.

Conclusions: Our case suggests that correcting cervical lordosis by Chiropractic BioPhysics methods, in those with late whiplash syndrome and cervical kyphosis, may alleviate the symptoms typically experienced by those suffering from previous whiplash.
