Abstract/Notes Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of a child following a jumping injury.

Clinical Features: A 17-month-old male was presented by his mother for chiropractic consultation and possible care following a jumping injury. The patient could not stand upright in a weight bearing position following an injury to his right foot following a jump from his father’s back as he lay prone on the floor. The patient stopped walking, favored his right foot and crawled for mobility. Chiropractic examination revealed subluxations in the right sacroiliac (SI) joint, the right navicular joint and the Atlas. Consultation with two medical doctors between chiropractic visits resulted in one diagnosing a sprained knee and the other diagnosed a “problem with the right SI joint.” Both medical doctors recommended “rest” as an approach to care.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was cared for with adjustments to sites of vertebral and extraspinal subluxations using a combination of Atlas Toggle Recoil, the Activator Instrument and high-velocity low amplitude manual thrusts. After 4 visits, the patient was able to stand weight bearing only by holding himself up on the furniture and walk with a limp. With continued care and following 9 office visits, the patient was able to walk and run unassisted.

Conclusion: This case provides supporting evidence on the effectiveness of chiropractic care in children with jumping injuries through subluxation detection and correction.
