Chi­ro­prac­tic Pedi­atric Guide­lines Pub­lished

On Sep­tem­ber 13, 2005, Med­ical News Today pub­lished the announce­ment of the cre­ation of chi­ro­prac­tic guide­lines for pedi­atric care. The guide­lines “The Child Patient: A Matrix for Chi­ro­prac­tic Care” was orig­i­nally released as a sup­ple­ment to its peer-​reviewed Jour­nal of Clin­i­cal Chi­ro­prac­tic Pedi­atrics (JCCP) Vol. 6, No.3, 2005.

The release is note­wor­thy in two respects. This is the first time guide­lines such as these have been pub­lished with para­me­ters estab­lish­ing the neces­sity of chi­ro­prac­tic care for chil­dren of all ages. But addi­tion­ally, since these guide­lines were pub­lished as a sup­ple­ment to a sci­en­tific, peer reviewed jour­nal, the med­ical news out­let “Med­ical News Today” picked up the release and pub­lished it in their gen­eral release avail­able for all physi­cians and the gen­eral public.

Dr. Joan Fal­lon, Board of Direc­tors mem­ber of the Inter­na­tional Chi­ro­prac­tors Asso­ci­a­tion (ICA) and past chair and cur­rent Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee mem­ber of the ICA Pedi­atrics Coun­cil stated, “The foun­da­tion of chi­ro­prac­tic care is the pres­ence of sub­lux­a­tion.” She con­tin­ued, “For chil­dren, sub­lux­a­tion man­i­fests itself dif­fer­ently than in adults, and also may occur as a result of mul­ti­ple non– pain pro­duc­ing activ­i­ties espe­cially in the very young child. The Matrix closely exam­ines the pres­ence of sub­lux­a­tion in the child with respect to their anatomy, phys­i­ol­ogy and development.”

Dr. Lora Tanis, Chair­per­son of the ICA Pedi­atrics Coun­cil noted the impor­tance of these guide­lines by stat­ing, “This is an invalu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the pro­fes­sion and to the pub­lic at large because for the first time we have a pub­lished doc­u­ment that explains why infants and tod­dlers need chi­ro­prac­tic care and how the need and/​or fre­quency of care relates to birth trauma, immune sys­tem matu­rity and devel­op­men­tal mile­stones along with any abnor­mal, con­gen­i­tal, trau­matic or acquired injuries the child may have.”
