  Title An epidemiological approach to the effects of subluxation-based chiropractic care on a child with autism, acid reflux, headache, seizures, and vomiting: A case study and review of the literature [case report; review]
Journal Ann Vert Sublux Res. 2013 Summer;2013(3):Online access only p 51-65
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: We present the findings in which a three year girl received relief from common neurological autism manifestations, acid reflux, vomiting, and seizures as a result of subluxation-based chiropractic care.

Clinical Features: Thirty five month old girl presented into office with history of bilateral, intermittent headaches, epilepsy, behavioral and developmental delay, acid reflux, sleep disturbances, and vomiting.

Interventions and Outcomes: Subluxation-based specific chiropractic care was administered to the patient which resulted in complete resolution of bilateral head pain, acid reflux, vomiting, and sleeplessness. Significant improvements in ASD manifestations were also noted including calm behavior, increased eye contact, happier demeanor, improved attitude, increased focus and attention and an initiation to sound out words. She continues to progress as is evidenced by a significantly increased vocabulary, continued improvement in attention and focus, and complete lack of epileptic episodes.

Conclusions: The improved outcomes of a child with ASD undergoing chiropractic management to reduce vertebral subluxation is described. We suggest that chiropractic care should be part of the multidisciplinary management of ASD and that further research in this area be conducted.
