  Title Resolution of abdominal migraines and improvements in concentration and learning in a 6-year-old girl following Network Spinal Analysis care: A case study [case report]
Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2015 Fall;2015(4):Online access only p 140-148
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To report on the improvements in a child with difficulties in concentration, learning, and abdominal migraines while receiving Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A 6-year-old girl presented with difficulties in concentration and learning since beginning school more than twelve months earlier. She also suffered from severe stomach pain for over two months diagnosed as abdominal migraines. She received NSA care over a period of six weeks. Spinal and neural integrity (SNI) was assessed and measured weekly through palpation, visual postural analysis, and heel tension scales.  

Results: Improvements were seen in concentration and learning along with a complete resolution of abdominal migraines. These improvements were consistent with greater SNI (including the reduction of adverse mechanical cord tension (AMCT) and vertebral subluxation) achieved through NSA care.    

Conclusion: The results documented in this case suggest comorbidity between difficulties in concentration, learning, and abdominal migraines. NSA chiropractic care was found to be of clinical benefit in this case by improving SNI. Further research is needed to investigate the relationships between SNI and co-occurring stress related conditions.
