Abstract/Notes

Objective: To report on the resolution of fecal incontinence following regular chiropractic adjustments.

Clinical Features: An 8-year-old female with pelvic unleveling and a history of irregular bowel movements presented to a chiropractic clinic with signs of vertebral subluxation. Previous attempts of altered potty training habits and stool softeners were unsuccessful in regulating her bowel movements.

Intervention and Outcomes: The pediatric patient received subluxation based chiropractic care using the Thompson terminal point technique protocol. Improvements began after two weeks of care and after 6 weeks the fecal incontinence was resolved, with the patient having no accidents for the first time in her life.

Conclusion: While there is limited research on the effect of chiropractic care on encopresis, studies, including this one, have shown that chiropractic adjustments may have a positive effect on the outcomes. It is an important area that is in need of further research.
