Objective: Discuss the chiropractic management of a pediatric patient suffering from chronic constipation.

Clinical features: 10-year-old female with chronic constipation since the age of 3 without apparent cause. Bowel movement happens every 2 to 3 days with significant pain and large diameter stool. Current treatment consists of positive reinforcement, which has not been effective.
