Abstract


Objective: To describe and discuss improvements in sensorimotor function in a 74-year-old male receiving chiropractic care.

Clinical Features:
A 74-year-old male patient presented for chiropractic care as a participant in a chiropractic clinical trial.

Intervention and Outcome:
The patient received Torque Release Technique Chiropractic Care for three months. After the three months of care, significant improvements were observed in postural stability, joint position sense and reaction time.

Conclusion:
This case report documents the improvement in sensorimotor function in a 74-year-old male receiving chiropractic care. Further research is required to determine the role chiropractors may play in improving sensorimotor function in older people.
