Abstract

 


Objective: To report on the outcomes of a child suffering with asthma, chronic colds and respiratory issues undergoing subluxation based chiropractic care.

 

Clinical Features: A two-year-old male suffering from asthma, chronic colds, and respiratory issues since birth was presented by his mother for chiropractic evaluation and possible care. At the time of initial examination the patient was taking two medications, Flovent and Singulair, daily.

 

Interventions and Outcomes: The patient was cared for using specific, low-force adjustments with the Activator adjusting instrument to address areas of vertebral subluxation in the cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral spine. Within approximately two weeks (4 adjustments) the patient’s mother reported improvement in the boy’s condition.

 

Conclusion: This case report reviews the benefit a young boy suffering from asthma experienced while undergoing chiropractic care. It is recommended that further investigation be conducted on this subject with large clinical trials.
