Improved Physical Adaptability in a 3.5-Year-Old Female with an Abnormal Birth History: A case report
A ChiroSecure Research Update
Abstract: Objective/Clinical Features A 3½ year old female presented for chiropractic care with primary complaints of flat feet, bed wetting and poor balance. Additional health history included eczema, repetitive ear infections requiring antibiotic medication, and a difficult birth history. Subluxations through the cervical and thoracic spine were noted.
Discussion: A course of chiropractic care for the resolution of vertebral subluxation commenced, during which Activator Methods and Diversified Technique were used to adjust subluxations. The course of care was concomitant with a significant reduction in symptomatology which included digestion, mood, attention, and bedwetting.
Conclusion: Chiropractic care may be associated with improved mood, attention, digestion and bedwetting. Further research is required to isolate the mechanisms behind such improvements.
