Changes in Asthma Symptoms and Bedwetting in a Four Year Old Child Receiving Chiropractic Care: A Case Report

Chiropractic Journal of Australia
Volume 40 Issue 1 (Mar 2010)

Abstract: Objective: This article describes and discusses changes in asthma, bedwetting and allergy symptoms in a four-year-old child receiving chiropractic care. Clinical Features: A four-year-old child diagnosed with asthma and a history of allergies, bedwetting and disrupted sleep presented for chiropractic care. Intervention and Outcome: The child received spinal and cranial adjustments based on Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) protocol. After 32 weeks of chiropractic care the child no longer had asthma symptoms, bedwetting had ceased and a positive change in other presenting symptoms was noted. Conclusion: There are a growing number of case reports that describe improvements in childhood problems such as asthma and nocturnal enuresis in children receiving chiropractic care. Thus far clinical trials have failed to provide sufficient evidence to support the potential link between improvements in these childhood problems and chiropractic care. Further study is required to investigate the role chiropractors may play in caring for children with these disorders.
