Clinical Features: Four pediatric patients, ranging from 3 to 9 years old, who had injuries causally related to what has been described in the literature as “Wii-itis” (spinal pain, spinal joint dysfunction [chiropractic subluxation], and related extremity pain), presented to a chiropractic clinic.
Intervention and Outcomes: Each of the 4 pediatric cases was evaluated and managed using chiropractic techniques. All patients successfully had their complaints resolve with 1 chiropractic visit.
Conclusion: Children in the new era of portable electronic devices are presenting to chiropractic offices with a set of symptoms directly related to overuse or repetitive strain from prolonged play on these systems.
