Chiropractic Management of a 15-Year-Old Boy with Migraine and Behavioral Learning Disabilities

CHALFONT, Pa. - April 15, 2014 - PRLog -- A recent article in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine reported on a 15-year-old adolescent boy with a chronic history of migraines and more than 10 years of learning and behavioral difficulties, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and Tourette syndrome, who presented for chiropractic care.

         Tourette syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting approximately 1 in 300 to 400 individuals.  It has also been found to have genetic correlations with obsessive-compulsive disorder and with attention-deficit/hyperactivity syndrome.

         Chalfont-based Dr. Scott Walker, D.C., follows health and wellness issues closely in professional journals and other publications stated, “The patient received spinal manipulation to the cervical, lumbar and pelvic regions of the left side of his body, and was given home physical coordination activities.”

         The patient reported qualitative improvements in tics, attention, reading, vision, overall health, relationships with his peers and his family, and self-esteem.  “This patient with migraine headaches and learning difficulties responded well to the course of chiropractic care” Dr. Walker related.  “This is just one study, but it suggests that there may be value in a brain-based model of care in the chiropractic management of conditions that are beyond musculoskeletal in nature.”

         Anyone wishing more information may contact Dr. Walker, whose office is located at 166 East Butler Avenue, Chalfont, PA, USA (telephone 215-997-8786).
