Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Objective: The purpose of this paper is to present a case of a child with Prader-Willi syndrome and the observed improvement in the degree of scoliosis, immune function, and behavior documented during the course of her treatment.

Clinical Features: A 7-year-old girl presented to Kentuckiana Children's Center with a 15° lumbar levoscoliosis and diagnosis of Prader-Willi syndrome.

Intervention and Outcome: The treatment plan consisted of chiropractic adjustments, craniosacral therapy, movement therapy, and nutritional therapy. Over the course of treatment, her muscle strength, tone, and motor activity increased. She improved in coordination of gait and balance. Over the course of 3 years, her scoliosis decreased to 4° to 5°. Improvements in immune function and a reduction in anxiety type behaviors were documented by the parents and doctor of chiropractic over the course of 5 years.

Conclusions: This case report describes the improvements and progression of one female child with Prader-Willi syndrome under chiropractic and multidisciplinary care.
