Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective:  To describe a successful interdisciplinary approach in the case of a patient with Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis, craniosynostosis, and Chiari I malformation.

Clinical Features:  Patient was a 4 year old male with previous diagnosis of right craniosynostosis, mild Chiari malformation and scoliosis.  Examination and radiographs confirmed a 25 degree scoliosis.

Intervention:  The patient received regular interdisciplinary structural care for his growing body involving Craniosacral Therapy, Raindrop Therapy™, and regular visits for chiropractic adjustments and educational office visits.   The interdisciplinary approach using Hole-in-One Chiropractic, Cranial Orthodontia, Craniosacral Therapy and Raindrop Technique™ resulted in resolution of the medical diagnosis for craniosynostosis and Chiari malformation and a reduction in the curvature of the juvenile idiopathic scoliosis by the age of 10.  

Conclusions:  This case study demonstrates an interdisciplinary approach as a practice model for an overall cost effective approach for idiopathic juvenile scoliosis as well as craniosynostosis and/or chiari malformation.  More research is warranted in this area.
