  Title Chiropractic care of a child with cryptorchidism [case report]
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2009 Jun;10(1):599-602
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The objective of this case report is to discuss the presentation of a 7-year-old male who sought chiropractic consultation after receiving a medical diagnosis of cryptorchidism and a recommendation for the surgical procedure known as orchiopexy.

Intervention and Outcome: The child was adjusted using a combination of Thompson and Sacro-Occipital Techniques over a 4-month period with favorable results.

Conclusion: Cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both testes are undescended, is considered one of the most common disorders of the male genitourinary system. The outcome of this case suggests the value of additional study of the benefits of spinal etiologies and the utilization of chiropractic adjustments in the resolution of this condition.
