Spinal radiographs showed multilevel cervicothoracic
spine degenerative disc/joint disease, reduction of lordotic curve and moderate anterior head carriage.
The spinal pain started insidiously and was located midline from her cervicothoracic
to thoracolumbar junction.
Subtle clinical signs of a spinal cord ependymoma at the cervicothoracic
level in an adult: A case report.
Management consisted primarily of myofascial release of the trapezius and cervicothoracic
paraspinal musculature, as well as diversified chiropractic adjustments to the cervical spine and instrument assisted (activator) adjustments as needed and tolerable in the thoracic spine.
The patient had previously seen the chiropractor for various sports injuries, cervicothoracic
postural strains and headaches without any complaint of numbness or tingling to the upper extremities.
The patient localized the pain to the cervicothoracic
junction and reported that moving his head to the right and upwards aggravated the pain, whereas stretching provided some temporary relief.
The patient was diagnosed with cervicothoracic
dysfunction and thoracic outlet syndrome, and a plan of management including mobilizations of the cervical, thoracic and costovertebral articulations, ART[R] to affected muscles and microcurrent (acupuncture point LI4, setting: 30/300) was proposed.
The patient was diagnosed with Grade I neck pain, (13) also known as mechanical neck pain or somatic pain, and dysfunction of the cervicothoracic

A randomized double blind prospective pilot study of botulinum toxin injection for refractory, unilateral, cervicothoracic
paraspinal myofascial pain syndrome.
A 45-year-old female presented with right cervicothoracic
pain and occipital headaches.
The clinical findings, CSF findings of AQP4-IgG (seen in 2 cases) and the long segment involvement of central spinal cord as evidenced by longitudinally extensive T2 hyperintensity involving cervicothoracic
region in MRI led to the establishment of the diagnosis.
