Case of study reveals a successful outcome of a patient suffering from PD treated with IUCCA upper cervical chiropractic care. To the author's knowledge, this is the first case reported on this topic since Palmer's research seventy years ago. (2) No firm conclusion can be obtained from the results of one case, although it does suggest that IUCCA upper cervical chiropractic care may provide benefit for Parkinson's disease patients when an upper cervical injury is found. Further investigation into upper cervical injury and resulting neuropathophysiology as a possible etiology or contributing factor to Parkinson's disease should be pursued.
