Abstract The role of chiropractic in the management of visceral disorders remains clouded with regards to possible benefits. Observations of one patient presenting with cortical blindness, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and recurrent otitis media are reported. Relief of symptoms is noted subsequent to correction of biomechanical aberrations of the occipito-atlanto-axial complex. The author suggests a relationship between biomechanical faults in the upper cervical spine and the manifestation of abnormal central neurophysiological processing.
