  Title Chiropractic care of paediatric non-musculoskeletal conditions: A retrospective patient survey
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2021 ;1(3):1-8
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

This  paper  attempts  to  facilitate  a  glimpse  into  a  chiropractic  clinical  practitioner’s  office  where  non-musculoskeletal conditions are routinely being treated.

Methods:  As  standard  practice  of  this  office  an  active  group  of  paediatric  patients  (2000-07)  were  (n=127)  sent  a questionnaire  via  the  mail.  For  the  purposes  of  this  retrospective  patient  survey  children  treated  for  non-musculoskeletal  symptoms  (n=37)  out  of  those  who  responded  to  the  questionnaire  were  used  for  this  survey.  All paediatric  patients  were  treated  by  the  same  clinician  utilising  sacro  occipital  technique  and  cranial  paediatric treatments.

Results:  65/127  parents  responded  from  our  standard  follow  up  outreach  and  37/65  were  treated  for  non-musculoskeletal  presentations.  Of  the  37  (17?,  20?)  non-musculoskeletal  paediatric  patients, five  were  treated  for immune dysfunction, seven for developmental delays/dysfunction, nine for birth trauma, one for seizure activity, four for  learning  problems,  three  for  endocrine  problems,  three  for  migraines,  two  gastrointestinal  issues,  two  for fussiness/agitated/anxiety, and one for enuresis. Discussion: Developing a paediatric chiropractic evidence base for practicing doctors should start with expanding the doctor’s knowledge of paediatric diagnosis and treatment options.

Conclusion:  To  build  a  representative  evidence  base  it  is  essential  that  research  into  chiropractic  treatment  of  non-musculoskeletal  conditions  incorporates  successful  chiropractic  clinical  practices  treating  this  subset  of  paediatric patient.
