Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2011 Dec;12(2):924-926
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To discuss the chiropractic management of a pediatric patient who sought care for chronic constipation.

Clinical Features: 5-year-old female with chronic constipation since birth.  Her symptoms included abdominal pain, gas, and abdominal bloating.  Current treatment consisted of laxatives, high fluid intake, and high fiber intake, which had not been effective.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient received full-spine diversified treatments over a period of 6 weeks.  She was able to have a significant bowel movement a few hours after her first treatment.  Her abdominal gas, bloating, and pain were eliminated.  Her bowel function continued to improve with further chiropractic treatments with sustained results.

Conclusion: This case suggests that chiropractic full-spine diversified adjustments may be helpful in some cases of chronic constipation.
