Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of a 6-year-old child medically diagnosed with asthma.

Clinical Features:  A 6-year-old male presented for care with complaints associated with asthma that caused nightly attacks. The patient had a four year history of asthma that had been medically managed with: Flovent 110 twice a day, with Flovent 220 and Albuterol on as needed basis, Orapred twice a year, and Flonase at night as needed. Chiropractic analysis revealed subluxations in the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacroiliac joint region.

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient was cared for utilizing the BGI approach to chiropractic care along with Diversified, and Activator adjusting methods. The patient was cared for three times per week and re-examined every 30 days.  On re-evaluation, the patient’s mother reported her child as utilizing his asthma medications only once since beginning care and improved sleep.

Conclusions: This case report illustrates the reduction of asthma symptoms and medication use in a pediatric patient under chiropractic care. It is recommended that the link between subluxation and visceral dysfunction, such as asthma be investigated further.

Author Keywords: Chiropractic, subluxation, adjustment, asthma, pediatric, Bio-Geometric Integration, Diversified, Activator, children, visceral dysfunction
