Resolution of Periodic Fever Syndrome in 3-year-old female: A case report
A ChiroSecure Research Update
Abstract: Background A three-year-old female presented for chiropractic care with a primary concern of a ‘clicky wrist’ and a request for a spinal check. An existing diagnosis of Periodic Fever Syndrome was discovered during the history and examination: a condition which affected the patient significantly approximately every two weeks.
Discussion: A course of chiropractic care commenced, during which the focus was a reduction in vertebral subluxations. Over the course of care, the frequency and severity of the periodic fever syndrome reduced significantly.
Conclusion: Chiropractic care for the reduction of vertebral subluxation may impact physical resilience and adaptability, which in this case manifested as a significant improvement in Periodic Fever Syndrome. Further research is required to isolate and confirm the mechanisms behind such improvement.
