Objective:  The cases of four children receiving Torque Release chiropractic adjustments for spinal subluxation with concurrent reduction in the signs and symptoms of ADHD and functional outcome measures are discussed.
Clinical Features:  Four children ages 8 to 12 years of age presented to the clinic seeking help with their symptoms of ADHD. Each had been previously diagnosed with ADHD by a medical doctor and displayed impairment in either inattention or impulsivity, or both components. Three of the children were currently on prescription medication to manage their symptoms and one had a recent history of prescription medication use.
Intervention and Outcomes:  Improvement in ADHD symptoms is based on the use of an ADHD symptom questionnaire completed by the primary caregiver and functional outcome measures include digital postural assessment, surface paraspinal electromyography, infrared paraspinal thermography, heart rate variability and spinal range of motion analysis. Chiropractic care utilizing Torque Release Technique was administered for 10, 10, 5, and 6 months respectively.
Conclusions:  In this group ADHD symptoms improved on average by 17%, functional status improved on average by 23% and general wellbeing improved on average by 21%.
