Publication Type Case Report

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.

Intervention/Outcomes 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.
