Abstract.

Objective: The purpose of this case report is to describe the care and outcomes of a patient with cervical dystonia who was treated using chiropractic and other alternative medicine interventions.Clinical features: A 59-year-old woman had an 11-year history of cervical dystonia. She had an uncontrollable 60° leftward head rotation upon shutting her eyes and had spasmodic contractions that caused fatigue.Intervention and outcome: The management consisted of blue-lensed glasses, vibration stimulation, spinal manipulation, and eye-movement exercises. Within the first week of treatment, she had a reduction in symptoms, which was documented using a functional numeric scale, and improved posture, which was assessed using measurements from her midsternal line to the center of her chin.Conclusion: This patient with cervical dystonia responded to the use of conservative, nonpharmacological treatment procedures that consisted of chiropractic care using a functional neurologic approach aimed at improving her spasmodic contractions and function.
