Objective: To report on the improvement of fibromyalgia related symptoms in an adult female undergoing chiropractic care to correct vertebral subluxations.


Clinical Features: A thirty six year old female presented for chiropractic care due to injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident three days prior. Objective indicators of vertebral subluxation were identified upon physical examination and radiographs.          


Interventions and Outcomes: The patient was seen over a 12 week period with varying frequency.  She responded well to care; therefore she was placed on a long term maintenance plan.  The care plan consisted of a combination of chiropractic adjustments (CMT) and physical therapy. 


Conclusion: The case of an adult female with fibromyalgia related symptoms is presented following a motor vehicle accident. Dramatic improvement in symptoms related to fibromyalgia is noted following the introduction of chiropractic care concomitant with a reduction in vertebral subluxation. More research on the benefits of chiropractic in those with fibromyalgia is warranted.
