  Title Cervicogenic headaches and neck pain attributed to a suboccipital vertebral subluxation complex: A single case report of articuloautonomic pathophysiology involving multiple health professions [case report]
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2020 ;1(1):1-13
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

This paper seeks to discuss the clinical and inter-professional issues in the recognition of an aetiology and treatment of a patient with chronic neck pain, and headaches. This was ultimately attributed to a vertebral-autonomic dysfunction of an upper cervical segment of the spine - a vertebral subluxation complex (VSC). The patient’s discomfort may have been prolonged due to this unrecognised clinical presentation of a classic biomechanical neuromusculoskeletal lesion. Limitations in the recognition of the neurological and orthopaedic signs and symptom patterns associated with vertebral mechanical dysfunction are likely to have led to a delay in appropriate care.
