Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To report on improvement in hearing in a male child following chiropractic management of vertebral subluxation.

Clinical Features: Patient presented with mild to moderate hearing loss documented on Pure Tone Audiometry on two occasions. The child was falling behind in class and the patient’s speech was difficult to understand. Tympanostomy tubes were recommended. The child was examined and found to have vertebral subluxations.

Intervention & Outcomes: The child was adjusted using Koren Specific Technique with the use of an Arthostim hand held adjusting instrument. On two separate occasions his hearing, speech and school performance were improved following chiropractic care.

Conclusions: The clinical progress documented in this report suggests that chiropractic adjustments using Koren Specific Technique (KST) delivered to the central nervous system (CNS) may create positive changes in the auditory system following the removal of the vertebral subluxation.
