Abstract


Objective: To provide a comprehensive analysis of the current body of scientific literature regarding the chiropractic management of a wide variety of neurodevelopmental disorders.

 

Methods: A literature search was performed using PubMed, MANTIS, the Index to Chiropractic Literature, McCoy Press, Galileo, and ScienceDirect. Inclusion criteria consisted of full-text peer-reviewed articles written in English as they related to the efficacy of chiropractic management of neurodevelopmental disorders.

 

Results:  51 articles were selected.  The results were: Three Randomized Controlled Trials (RCT), 7 Reviews of Literature, three Case Series, 34 Case Studies and three Survey/Commentaries.

 

Conclusion:  The majority of articles dealt specifically with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD)/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and were predominantly case studies.  The chiropractic community should see this as a call to action to provide more research regarding neurodevelopmental disorders.
