Recently I have been investigating some of the new information coming out on autism and chiropractic care. In doing so, I have been rather surprised to find some very impressive case examples. I have found examples ranging from simple results such as less repetitive behaviors like hand waving all the way to overcoming the inability to communicate verbally. All achieved through the chiropractic adjustment.
While I know most people tend to look at chiropractic care as a “treatment” for back or neck pain, there is literally tons of information and good research mostly in the form of case studies available on how chiropractic care helps people improve their lives- in so many ways. Autism and chiropractic care you ask? Current thought on autism and its causes vary I know. In fact the theories vary widely. Vaccines, food allergy, heavy metal poisoning, nervous system interference etc. are just a few of the commonly discussed factors. There may not be a “one solution fits all” with autism. However, removing interference in the nervous system, relieving pressure on the spinal cord and central nervous system can help the body to restore a balance that cannot be attained if that pressure remains. It makes sense to me that the research on autism and chiropractic care is out there and looks very encouraging.
If you would like to hear a touching story from the mother of a child with autism and how her family benefitted from chiropractic care check out this link. “Autism and Chiropractic Care” This is a like to a video of a mom discussing how her son overcame the inability to speak. While this is not a case from my office, I definitely found it worth sharing. If you know anyone who might benefit from viewing this, feel free to share it.
Just added today: Check out this link to an amazing video on chiropractic and autism.
