  Title Dyspraxia in general chiropractic practice [review]
Journal Clin Chiropr. 2010 Jun;13(2):148-152
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Review
Abstract/Notes Objective: To bring an awareness of how common dyspraxia is and how it may impact upon the general health of patients visiting the general chiropractic practitioner.

Method: An overview of the literature retrieved from searches of computerised databases, the world-wide web and authoritative texts.

Discussion: Although generally considered in association with the learning and behavioural problems, dyspraxia can be an underlying cause of certain musculoskeletal conditions and may account for a slower than expected response to treatment or relapses.

Conclusion: Dyspraxia is said to occur in 20% of the population of children and without effective treatment will continue into adult life where it may not be recognised by the general chiropractic practitioner. It is hoped that this overview may bring to the attention of chiropractors the diverse symptoms and signs of dyspraxia and the sometimes subtle and yet debilitating effect it can have upon the patient and their treatment outcome.
