Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2018 Jan;17(1):Online access only p 1405-1409
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To chronicle the improvements in a 15-month-old male presenting with motor developmental delay following chiropractic care for the correction of vertebral subluxation. Methods: Online review of the literature on motor development delay and chiropractic was performed using The Index to Chiropractic Literature, PubMed and Google Scholar. Search terms “motor development delay”, “children” “chiropractic” and “spinal manipulation” were used.

Clinical features: A 15-month-old male with motor developmental delay presented for chiropractic care. He was able to sit unassisted, walk assisted, but could not crawl (creep) in any way, pull himself up to stand, stand alone, or walk alone.

Intervention and outcome: The child received full spine chiropractic care for 10 visits over 16 weeks using Diversified technique (Activator™ instrument assisted) for the correction of vertebral subluxation. Throughout the chiropractic care the child developed the ability to crawl on hands and knees, pull himself up to stand, stand alone, and began to walk unassisted.

Conclusion: A course of chiropractic care using Diversified technique for the correction of vertebral subluxation was associated with improvements in the child’s presenting motor development delay.
