  Title Decrease in allergies, nocturnal enuresis and sleep problems in a 3-year-old under chiropractic care: A case report
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2022 ;2(5):5
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Abstract: Objective/Clinical Features: A three-year old female presented for chiropractic care, with her mother citing primary concerns of allergies and a stuffy nose for the past two months. Secondary concerns included behavioural issues, poor sleep and a 6-7 month history of bed-wetting.

Intervention/Outcomes: A course of subluxation-based chiropractic care commenced, with torque release technique, toggle board and HVLA adjustments delivered in age appropriate measures. Chiropractic care was concomitant with an improvement in allergies and mood, decrease in temper tantrums and bed-wetting (nocturnal enuresis), and improved sleep.

Conclusion: This case report indicates that chiropractic care to reduce subluxations may result in improved immune system function as seen in the decrease in allergies in this case.
