Proof That Autism Is Helped by Correcting Spinal Misalignments

Autism, Autistic, Healthy Spine

Autism, Autistic, Healthy SpineAutism is a developmental disorder that is on the rise. Out of every sixty-eight children, one has autism. Boys are five times more likely to get autism than girls. What may surprise you to know is that upper cervical chiropractors are actually having much success in helping autistic children find some relief.

Autism Symptoms Helped

This is the case of a girl who was almost three years old and was showing symptoms of autism. She was also exhibiting other physical signs of distress, such as head pain, inability to sleep, acid reflux, and vomiting. Her medical history revealed she was born early at twenty-eight weeks, weighing only two and a half pounds. She was not developing the same as other children her age. She failed five critical criteria of the Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, resulting in a diagnosis of autism.

Her parents decided to bring her to see an upper cervical chiropractor and noticed that shortly thereafter she began doing better. The physical symptoms she had, as well as her symptoms of autism, began to dissipate. Her behavior improved, and she began to maintain eye contact for longer periods of time. She was able to learn and speak words and was a much more content little girl. After she had received five months of upper cervical care, she continued to progress with no relapses. This pleased her parents immensely, and they were so happy they took a chance on upper cervical chiropractic!

Why Autism Is Helped by Upper Cervical Care

The way the human body functions is quite complex. The brain depends on receiving proper signals from the body to function at its optimum via the brainstem. A misalignment in the top bones of the neck – the C1 and C1 vertebrae – can put undue stress on the brainstem and cause it to malfunction. It only takes a misalignment of ¼ of a millimeter to wreak havoc on the entire body due to improper communication.

The method we use is gentle and safe for all ages and does not include popping or cracking the neck. As seen above, it really can help improve a child’s fight against autism.
