Abstract/Notes

Objective: To describe two cases of individuals diagnosed with autism undergoing chiropractic care.

Clinical features: Case one involves a 20 year old autistic male who displays aggressive behavior towards others.  Case two is a 17-year-old autistic female who abuses herself. 

Intervention and outcome: Both patients received a trial of chiropractic care for 5 and 4 months respectively with visit frequency of once per week.  Both patients responded favorably to chiropractic care with the male patient decreasing in aggressive behavior and the female patient decreasing in self-abuse and improved socialization.

Conclusion: Two cases of individuals who suffered from autism are presented.  Each had favorable results after undergoing chiropractic care.  This case series provides supporting evidence that individuals with autism may benefit from chiropractic care.  More research is warranted in this area.

Author Keywords: autism, autistic disorder, autistic spectrum disorder, chiropractic, vertebral subluxation
