Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2018 Apr;2018():Online access only p 26-33
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The purpose of this study is to report on the improvement of asthma and numerous other functional disorders in a 9-year-old child undergoing chiropractic care to reduce vertebral subluxation.

Clinical Features: The patient had been diagnosed with chronic asthma along with several other functional disorders including: insomnia, headaches, dizziness, neck pain, low back pain, stomachaches, constipation, diarrhea, allergies, eczema and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. He underwent medical intervention throughout his life and had multiple visits to the emergency room. Multiple levels of vertebral subluxation were found on examination along with objective evidence of dysponesis and dysautonomia determined through SEMG and thermal scanning.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient underwent chiropractic care to reduce vertebral subluxations and saw positive results. His asthma, along with all other co-morbidities resolved, he reduced his need for medication to PRN and has not had an emergency room visit since beginning care.

Conclusion: This case study shows that chiropractic care to reduce vertebral subluxations may lead to improved health outcomes. It adds to the current literature on the positive outcomes of chiropractic care and children with asthma and other functional disorders. Further research is needed on chiropractic intervention, asthma, immunity, functional disorders and their relationship to the vertebral subluxation.
