This is the case of a 20-year-old female who had been diagnosed as suffering from hyperthyroidism. Symptoms included nervous irritation, tachycardia, hives, occasional eyelid and upper lip edema and frontal headaches. She had been under medical treatment for six years, which included prophylthiouracil. She had stopped medication and the symptoms worsened. Chiropractic examination revealed nerve irritation at C1, C3, T6, T7, T11 and L5. Restricted movement was found at C2. Adjustments were usually to C2 using the Gonstead cervical chair and the Gonstead technique. L5 was occasionally adjusted. After 4 months of chiropractic care the patients T4 blood levels were within normal range and symptoms completely disappeared.
