Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of a pediatric patient with neck pain and cervicogenic headaches.

Clinical Features:  An 8-year-old girl presented for chiropractic care with neck pain and cervicogenic headaches. According to the patient’s mother, her daughter reported her headaches and neck pain had been going on for four months with approximately two episodes per week. Medical examinations were unremarkable with the recommendation of Tylenol PRN. 

Intervention and Outcome: The patient cared with spinal adjustments characterized as high velocity, low amplitude thrusts to sites of vertebral subluxations at the upper and middle cervical spine along with trigger point therapy at the upper trapezius muscles. Following four visits, the patient’s neck pain and headaches resolved.

Conclusion: This case report provides supporting evidence on the effectiveness of chiropractic care in children suffering from neck pain and cervicogenic headaches.
