Abstract

 

Objective: The pediatric special needs population is increasing at an alarming rate. More children each year are being diagnosed with disorders ranging from Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Sensory Processing Disorder than ever before. The additional step of extinguishing primitive reflexes may be of great benefit to children with neurological issues and can easily be added to a pediatric chiropractic protocol.  


Methods: Results of eight children with a variety of neurological issues were examined in either a University based chiropractic clinic or a private practitioner’s office. The University IRB approved this study.


Results: Positive benefits were seen in this case series of eight special needs children under the care of five different chiropractic providers utilizing chiropractic and primitive reflex work.


Discussion: The combination of pediatric chiropractic care and extinguishing primitive reflexes may be of great benefit to the increasing population of children with neurological issues.
