Abstract


Objective: To report on the positive health outcomes following chiropractic in a teenage male suffering from chronic migraines.

Clinical Features: The patient was a 15-year-old male presenting with a chief complaint of migraine headaches that began when he was three years of age.

Interventions and Outcomes: Kale Upper Cervical Specific Protocol was utilized to manage this case. On the first visit, the patient was placed in the knee-chest posture and following adjustment, the sharp pressure he was experiencing prior began to alleviate. Over the next 24-month period the patient had experienced only 5 migraine headaches. Prior to chiropractic care the patient was averaging migraines once every 3 weeks.

Conclusion: We described the successful care of a 15-year-old male suffering from chronic recurrent migraine headaches with successful outcomes. We encourage continued documentation in the care of similar patients to inform practice and research.
