Improvement in Cystic Fibrosis an a Child Undergoing Subluxation Based Chiropractic Care

A recent article in the Journal of Maternal & Family Health reported on an 8 year old male child diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at birth who received chiropractic care over a period of 18 months. Following the study, the child showed a reduction of cystic fibrosis signs and symptomatology as determined by objective and subjective findings. Spokane-based Dr. Pat Dougherty, D.C., who follows health and wellness issues closely in professional journals and other publications, was not surprised by these findings. “Studies of a similar nature have been conducted previously with similar outcomes,” said Dr. Dougherty, “but more research needs to be conducted in order to evaluate the precise connection between chiropractic care and cystic fibrosis.” Cystic fibrosis is defined as a serious autosomal recessive disorder with no cure that occurs frequently in Caucasian populations, with a prevalence of 1 in 3500 live births. The prognosis for this condition involves a shortened...

Improvement in Asperger’s Symptoms in a Child Under Chiropractic Care

A recent article in the 2010 Proceedings of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) Research Conference reported on a 6 year old boy diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome along with asthma and allergies who received chiropractic care. Following the study, the child showed a reduction of Asperger’s signs and symptoms as well as a reduction in asthma and allergies as determined by objective and subjective findings. Spokane-based Dr. Pat Dougherty, D.C., follows health and wellness issues closely in professional journals and other publications. “This was not a short term case study,” said Dr. Dougherty, “but actually lasted for 9 years with consistent positive results.” Asperger’s syndrome is considered a high-functioning autism, but it differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. In this study, a 6 year old boy presented at a chiropractic office with his parents with Asperger’s Syndrome that resulted in uncontrollable “rocking,...

ADHD following Chiropractic Adjustments

The 2010 Proceedings of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) Research Conference recently published a case study involving the response of a 7-year-old child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to chiropractic adjustments over the course of a year. Approximately 8 million children in the United States are labeled with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD and generally are being medicated for this condition. ADHD is a childhood mental disorder with onset before 7 years of age and involving impaired or diminished attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. The behaviors must be excessive, last for at least six months, and cause a problem in a social environment, such as at school or home. Spokane-based Dr. Pat Dougherty, D.C., explains that “Ritalin is a common prescription given for ADHD, but since medications offer risk as well as possible dependencies, alternative options are worth investigating.” A male child was diagnosed by a psychiatrist at age 3...

Improvements in Hearing, Speech, Development, and Behavior Following Chiropractic in a 4 Year Old Male

A recent article in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health reported on a study that documented the positive effects of chiropractic adjustments on a four year-old male. A four year-old male presented with complaints of otitis media, adenoid swelling, nasal congestion, and fluid buildup and hearing loss in both ears associated with speech difficulties, developmental delay, and behavioral concerns. “Otitis media accounted for 24.5 million doctor’s visits in 1990,” said Dr. Dougherty Spokane-based, D.C., who follows health and wellness issues closely in professional journals and other publications, “and it is also the most common reason for emergency room visits among children.” This child had been previously diagnosed by his pediatrician and an ENT physician with bilateral hearing loss, fluid build-up in the middle ears, swollen adenoids, and swollen nasal tissue. His parent also mentioned he was diagnosed with expressive speech delay and developmental delay with behavioral issues. Developmental delay,...
