Abstract/Notes

Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of a pediatric patient presenting with Sensory Modulation Disorder and Constipation.

Clinical Features: Patient is a 5 year-old female with history of birth trauma, developmental delays, sensory processing, sleep difficulties and other functional disorders. Objective indicators of vertebral subluxation identified via Activator Technique.

Intervention and Outcomes: Activator Technique was employed to reduce vertebral subluxations in the axial and appendicular skeleton. Following adjustments, the patient demonstrated more frequent bowel movements, less-fragmented more-restful sleep, improved mood and ability to focus.

Conclusions: Following chiropractic adjustments, the patient’s nervous system was able to function at a higher level, resulting in improved bowel function, mood, ability to concentrate and engage with her environment. Additional research is needed to provide firm diagnostic criteria and a foundation for future interventions in cases of Sensory Modulation Disorder.
