Did you know that Chiropractic can help with Autism?

Furthermore, a 1999 case study of a 3 year old girl who was non-verbal , engaged in compulsive behaviors and daily rituals, and exhibited head banging and other violent behavior relates that after 1 month of chiropractic care her parents and teachers noted a 30% improvement in the child’s social behavior.
