Chiropractic care is not just for adults. We treat many different kinds of pediatric cases in our office and often we are a last resort for parents who have explored every other avenue to help get their child the treatment they need. The following is a case study that shows exactly how helpful chiropractic care can be for pediatric patients suffering from painful and consistent headaches.

A 10-year-old girl was brought to a chiropractic office suffering chronic and severe migraine headaches. History revealed that the patient had been having migraine headaches 6 times a week for 3 years.  At the current time, the patient has not been able to go to school due to the severity of the headaches.

Recommendations were made for adjustments 3 times a week for 8 weeks and 2 times a week for 4 weeks due to the severity and chronicity of her headaches. At the end of that period she was reexamined. The patient’s symptomatology improved following her third visit at which time she stopped using the Periactin Syrup.  She was advised to continue her treatment of 3 times a week.

By the end of her third week, the patient was able to begin school again.  She also started her dance classes for the first time in 2 years, and actually began to smile again.  She was leading a normal and healthy life for a child of her age by the end of the 5th visit.
