Autism and Chronic Otis Media


This case report describes a five-year-old girl with autism. She first presented for chirpractic care at age 3-1/2
She was non-verbal, had marked compulsive disorder and daily rituals including: constantly rocking anterior to posterior; banging her head, regularly inflicting damage; and frequently becoming violent to herself and others. She had profound difficulty relating to others, and refused to be touched.
After chiropractic care was initiated, with one-month period, Caitlin’s parents and teachers had noticed a 30 percent improvement socially. After one year of care, an 80 percent improvement was noted. Her daily rituals diminished by 50 percent and she quickly became markedly less violent. Verbal skills followed.
Caitlin’s chronic serious otis media immediately began to improve and resolve after completing her first month of chiropractic care. Subsequently, her antibiotic therapy was determined unnecessary and discontinued. She has not shown the need for any additional drug therapy.
