Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To discuss the results of chiropractic care in a 19 month-old patient with the diagnosis of severe chronic asthma and vertebral subluxation.

Clinical Features: This patient began experiencing symptoms at age 9 months. By age 18 months he had been treated 4 times at the hospital emergency room for episodes of acute respiratory distress. He suffered from constant wheezing and cough and was not responding well to pharmacological interventions.

Intervention and Outcomes: Adjustments of the cervical spine utilizing the Orthospinology technique with KH-4 electric instrument were performed on 6 visits over a 7 month period. After 9 weeks, no further episodes of breathing difficulty were reported and measures of vertebral subluxation had reduced.

Conclusion: The results in this case suggest that chiropractic adjustments to reduce vertebral subluxation may be effective for the reduction of asthma symptoms in some pediatric cases which have not responded well to standard pharmacological treatment.
