Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the remission of oligoarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis in a 16 year old female undergoing chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A sixteen year old female medically diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis presented to a chiropractic clinic for care with a chief complaint of joint pain. Medical management up to that point included symptomatic relief through prescription medication which had little effect.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient’s spine was analyzed through the use of static palpation, a weight-bearing postural evaluation, paraspinal thermography, and Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique analysis. Vertebral subluxations were found at spinal levels C1, C5, T4, L5 and sacrum. Cervical segments were adjusted using Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique, while all other vertebral subluxations were adjusted using Diversified Technique. After six weeks of chiropractic care, the patient was considered in remission and taken off of her medications by her rheumatologist.

Conclusion: The results documented in this case study suggests that chiropractic care may be successful in the non-traditional management of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.
