Abstract/Notes

Objective: To report on the positive health outcomes of a toddler with Lissenencephaly and seizures undergoing chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: A two-year-old female patient presented with a chief complaint of daily seizures stemming from lissencephaly. Positive pediatric orthopedic and neurological findings were noted along with subluxations.

Intervention and Outcome: Vertebral subluxations were located and reduced using a combination of Logan Basic, Diversified Full Spine, and Cranial-Sacral Chiropractic Techniques. The toddler’s seizures reduced along with improved motor control and coordination following chiropractic care.

Conclusion: Two months of chiropractic care assisted in the reduction of seizures, improved motor control and coordination in a two-year-old patient with a diagnosis of lissencephaly. Further research is encouraged to evaluate the effectiveness of chiropractic care in the management of patients with seizure disorders.
