Grace presented to our office with numbness of the hand. Her tingling and weakness of the right hand was worse at night . She had tried medication but it did not help. She also noticed stiffness in the neck/shoulder region. X-rays revealed loss of the cervical lordosis, as well as misalignment at c5/6/7. Her clinical tests showed evidence of carpal tunnel along with an associated cervical spine dysfunction.

Eric was injured in a rear impact car accident. He suffered injuries to his neck and back, and x-rays showed a loss of the normal cervical curve as well as misalignment's of the spine vertebrae. He had severe pain that he rated a 9 out of 10 on a pain scale, and had difficulty sleeping, and working.
