He is also now able to talk in a better manner with his siblings.

Apart from the above mentioned story, the article also threw light on another similar case involving a TV reporter and his son who was also suffering from autism.

Behavioral Changes and Chiropractic Care, A Case Study

by Administrator 10. January 2011 18:20

In the year 2006, the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research published a study narrating the treatment process of a boy who was suffering from a variety of learning and attitudinal problems. This study involving a boy eight years of age formed a part of the October issue of the magazine. The concerned boy also showcased physiological distress including pain in the neck, red eyes, recurring stomach ache and lack of coordination. After visiting a number of medical practitioners, no proper assessment regarding the condition could be made.

The cause of these changes was attributed to a major fall that he had suffered around eighteen months ago. The onset of these changes occurred only after this particular accident. On seeing a chiropractor, it was found that there was restricted movement in the neck area due to certain blockages and soreness of the vertebra on the neck. X ray examinations also established that subluxations related to the vertebrae were present. There was chiropractic treatment advised to correct these ailments.

The treatment was initially restricted to a single session on a weekly basis. This program was adhered to for a period of two months. The situation improved dramatically in the early stages itself. After three weeks, the boy was subjected to a spelling test in which he performed fairly well. There was a dramatic progress in his learning abilities. He went on to score all correct answers out of the ten questions after as little as two chiropractic adjustments. His instructors assessed better concentration and coordination in the boy.

There was also immense psychological improvement as the boy improved in terms of his socializing skills as well. A point to be noted in this particular case was that there was absolutely no medicine administered. Although the exact cause of the positive results could not be determined, it was found that all the improvement that took place was solely a result of the chiropractic sessions. There was extreme progress academically and he continued to fare well in all learning ability tests. It was thus established in this case study that chiropractic treatment could have far reaching consequences in such cases where the victim has suffered an injury or fall.
