Improvement In Nasal Turbinate and Adenotonsillar Hypertrophy and its concomitant symptomatology with Pediatric Chiropractic Care
A ChiroSecure Research Update
Abstract: Nasal turbinate and adenotonsillar hypertrophy appears to be common complaints for infants, toddlers, even adults. From a chiropractic standpoint, subluxation-based care that ensures optimal neural function contributes to both immunological and hormonal balance. This can be found to be a successful low risk intervention as opposed to surgery. We present here a case study of a 4-year-old girl suffering from sleep disturbance, breathing disturbance related to chronic adenotonsillar and nasal turbinate hypertrophy.
Discussion: Subluxation-based care of a 4-year-old female patient whose mother reports her experiencing, since birth, nasal turbinate and adenotonsillar hypertrophy with sleep and respiratory disturbances, dental bruxism, chronic upper respiratory tract infections, and behavioural issues. The Chiropractic care proved to be highly effective in a brief period of time. The results were documented and verified independently by the patient’s otorhinolaryngologist and dentist who initially were unaware of Chiropractic care.
Conclusion: Conventional Chiropractic care for the correction of subluxations in such patients may provide a safer and more effective alternative to long term medical treatment with antibiotics and possible surgical intervention for nasal turbinate and adenotonsillar hypertrophy. Further studies are needed to further corroborate these findings.
