Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To present the successful resolution of cervicogenic radiculopathy, neck pain, headache and vertigo in a patient presenting with vertebral subluxation, lateral head translation and forward head posture.

Clinical Features: A 49-year-old male suffered from recent neck pain and upper extremity radiculopathy. Assessment revealed subluxation, a right head translation and excessive forward head carriage which was verified and quantified by radiography.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was managed by Chiropractic BioPhysics® technique protocol utilizing spinal adjustments, mirror image® exercises, traction methods, as well as spine manipulation. After 6 months of treatment the patient had a significant reduction of both spine deformity subluxations and a resolution of initial symptoms. A 10-month follow-up assessment without care showed the stability of the structural correction and the patient remained well.

Conclusions: This case is consistent with several randomized controlled trials that demonstrate correcting the cervical spine subluxations and structural alignment may lead to superior long-term outcomes in patients with symptoms of cervicogenic origin. This case also illustrates that radiography is essential in the comprehensive assessment of patients with cervical spine disorders and an abundance of recent literature substantiates the fact the radiation exposures from plain film spinal x-rays are safe and not carcinogenic.
