120 Chiropractic – Constipation Resolved in a 3-Year Old Under Chiropractic Care
Resolution of Chronic Constipation in a Three-Year-Old Female Following Chiropractic Care: A Case Report Amy Merkovich, DC. Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health, Chiropractic ~ Volume, 2019
Research has shown chiropractic to be safe and effective for children including with constipation. Essentially, chiropractic corrects the spine to allow the nervous system to function better. This leads to better overall health.
In this study, a 3-year-old had chronic constipation. Her pediatrician had prescribed laxatives and other drugs without much success. In addition, she was on a special diet which didn’t help either. The chiropractor who treated her corrected shifts in her spine. As a result, her constipation resolved and she had bowel movements daily. Furthermore, her appetite and mood improved as well.
