Objective:  To discuss the case of a pediatric patient with neurological tics who received effective chiropractic care.

Interventions and Outcomes:  Diversified chiropractic technique, along with Activator Methods was used to reduce vertebral subluxations in the cervical and thoracic regions.  Over the course of care, the frequency of tics reduced.

 

Conclusion: Resolution of neurological tics is described in a 7 year old male along with reduction of vertebral subluxations.  More research is warranted in this area.
