Barnes T  Topics in Clinical Chiropractic  1997 Dec; 4(4):  9-18

ABSTRACT: Purpose:  A discussion of clinical considerations in the chiropractic management of children with special needs is offered.  Three conditions that contribute to special needs situations are reviewed:  cerebral palsy, autism, and Down syndrome.  Descriptive case studies regarding chiropractic management of a cerebral palsy patient and an autism patient are presented for illustrative purposes.

Methodology:  A qualitative literature review was conducted, and case studies of the application of chiropractic care were constructed using Kentuckiana files.


Summary:  Although genetic disorders remain incurable, under certain circumstances children with these conditions may receive clinical benefit and/or palliative relief of concurrent problems from chiropractic interventions.
