Abstract The current scientific literature offers little with regards to published studies on chiropractic management of primary fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome (1). The clinical observations of 23 successive cases, along with a case presentation, are reported. 92-100% improvement in symptoms was achieved in both these syndromes subsequent to corrections of aberrant arthrokinematic function of the occipito-atlanto-axial complex. A causal relationship between biomechanical faults in the upper cervical spine, abnormal central neurophysiologic processing, and subsequent peripheral neuropathophysiology, is suggested as the possible genesis of these two syndromes.
