A recent article in the Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research reported on a 3-year-old female who received results of symptom relief from common neurological autism spectrum manifestation (ASD), acid reflux, vomiting, and seizures as a result of subluxation-based chiropractic care.
A 35-month-old girl presented to a chiropractic office with history of bilateral, intermittent headaches, epilepsy, behavioral and developmental delay, acid reflux, sleep disturbances and vomiting. Chassell-based Dr. Mischa Doman, D.C., follows health and wellness issues closely in professional journals and other publications stated, "Subluxation-based 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."
Autism is often characterized by a failure to bond, lack of social interaction, avoidance of eye-to-eye contact, difficulties in language development, and repetitive behaviors known as self-stimulation (stimming). On a national level, it has been reported that autism rates have doubled from 1966 to 1997, then spiked 26.01 percent from 1998 to 1999. Additionally, about 20 to 30 percent of children with an ASD develop epilepsy by the time they reach adulthood.
"This is just one study," explained Dr. Doman, "but the improved outcome of a child with ASD undergoing chiropractic management to reduce vertebral subluxation is described. It is suggested that chiropractic care should be part of the multidisciplinary management of ASD and that further research in this area be conducted."
