Autism, Asthma, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Strabismus, Illness Susceptibility: A Study in Chiropractic Management

by William Amalu, DC. Published in Today's Chiropractic September / October 1998.

Abstract
Pathologies of organic origin are commonly thought to be the exclusive realm of medical treatment and not part of the mainstay of chiropractic care. The clinical observations of a patient presenting with autism, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, strabismus, and illness susceptibility are reported. Alleviation of symptoms is seen subsequent to corrections of abnormal biomechanical function of the occipito-atlanto-axial complex. A relationship between biomechanical faults in the upper cervical spine and the manifestation of abnormal central neurophysiological processing is suggested as the genesis of this patient’s symptomatology.
