  Title Improved posture and physical resilience through chiropractic care in 3-year-old female: A case report
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2022 ;2(6):1-7
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Abstract: Objective/Clinical Features A 3-year-old female presented for chiropractic care for poor posture, poor motor control and low energy levels. Examination revealed retained primitive reflexes and vertebral subluxations. Intervention/Outcomes Three consecutive courses of care commenced, during which chiropractic care for vertebral subluxation was concomitant with steady improvements in posture and physical resilience as well as integration of retained primitive reflexes and an improvement in gross motor skills.

Conclusion Chiropractic care for the reduction of vertebral subluxations may result in changes at the brainstem level and lead to better integration of primitive reflexes and an increase in posture, gross motor skill and generalised physical resilience. Further research is required to isolate and confirm the mechanisms behind such improvements.
