  Title Improvevment in cystic fibrosis in a child undergoing subluxation-based chiropractic care: A case study [case report]
Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2010 Fall;2010(4):Online access only p 172-180
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The objective of this report is to retrospectively document subluxation-based chiropractic care provided to an 8 year old male who was seen for a year and a half.

Clinical Features: An 8 year old male presented for care with complains of recurring infections, inability to sleep, and inability to participate in age-appropriate sports.  He was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at birth.

Intervention & Outcomes: The course of care involved chiropractic spinal adjustments, Network Spinal Analysis care, and trigger point therapy. Improvements were observed in the patient’s resistance to recurrent infection, activity level, sleep ability, and overall quality of life.

Conclusion: With previous studies examining the relationship between subluxation reduction and autonomic function, immune function and somatovisceral reflexes, this case suggests that more research is needed to examine the short and long-term impact of subluxation-based care for those children with cystic fibrosis.

Author Keywords: subluxation, subluxation-based chiropractic care, cystic fibrosis alternative care, CAM treatment of cystic fibrosis
