ABSTRACT

Objectives : The purpose of this study is to report one case of spinal scoliosis patient with neglected congenital muscular torticollis treated by chuna manual therapy.

Results : After treatment, the cobb's angle has been improved by 12°(31° to 19°) at thoracic level, by 7°(17° to 10°) at lumbar level. The cervico-mandibular angle has been improved by 5°(14° to 9°).
