Illuminate 2008 VOL 2 Chiropractic News CHIROPRACTIC AND KIDS ON THE GOLD COAST In 1986, in my first year of Chiropractic College, I was completely blown away when I attended the UCA Annual Conference. I was blown away because Dr Maxine McMullen was the keynote speaker at the conference and she showed me that chiropractic could do more for people than I had previously imagined. Her presentation focused on chiropractic care for children and the amazing impact it could have on the health and wellbeing of children. I’m writing this on the plane on the way back from one of the most amazing conferences I have been to since that time and, coincidentally, it was one presented by the organization that Dr McMullen was central to forming, the ICA Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics. It was the ICA Conference & Research Symposium on Chiropractic Pediatrics and was co-sponsored by the Australian Spinal Research Foundation, CAA and New Zealand Chiropractic College. The program was loaded with useful information for chiropractors wanting to do a better job of taking care of kids. It was split into two parts; lectures on particular topics, and sessions where original research findings were presented. The lectures were presented by lecturers in the ICA Pediatrics Council Diplomate Program and looked at topics including the role of chiropractic in brain hemisphericity, ear infections, plagiocephaly, autism, sleep disorders and breast feeding. The presentations were uniformly excellent and left many of those present keen to learn more through the ICA Diplomate program. The research sessions featured presentations by private practice clinicians and those involved in institutional research. There were a number of interesting case studies including one that looked at reduction of scoliosis in a 10 year old child, another that looked at chiropractic management of separation anxiety disorder using NET, another looking at chiropractic care of a child with developmental delay and one that looked at the use of the Webster technique in a woman with a history of multiple caesarean births that resulted in a successful vaginal delivery. Chiropractic safe for kids There were also presentations of findings from larger studies. Dr Joyce Miller for AECC presented the results of a retrospective study of 781 case files of children under the age of three from the AECC clinic files. The files were studied to see if there were complications from chiropractic care. The findings were that chiropractic is safe for children under the age of three. Chiropractic helps kids with ADHD Dr Fay Karpouzis presented a paper looking at the impact of Neuro Emotional Technique on children with ADHD. She presented the results of 34 cases from a larger RCT that is being run by Macquarie University. The results are very exciting “the NET group has shown statistically significant improvement as compared to both a control and a sham procedure group.” Chiropractic may be better than antibiotics for chronic ear infection Dr Joan Fallon presented the results of a study looking at the results of chiropractic care compared with antibiotics for children with chronic ear infections. To be included in the study, children needed to have had at least three ear infections in the previous 90 days and been treated with antibiotics for the previous three infections. The children were then randomly allocated to receive another dose of antibiotics or receive chiropractic care. They were then monitored to see how long it took for their ear infection to resolve and how likely they were to have another ear infection. On average the chiropractic group took less than a third of the time for their ear infections to resolve and had less than a quarter of the recurrences of the antibiotic group! The Graduation of the Diplomates in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics Class of 2008 was another highlight. The Graduates had spent the previous three years working towards this moment and there was a celebratory mood at the Gala Banquet on the Saturday night. (Editor’s note. The ICA Diplomate will be run through the New Zealand College of Chiropractic again commencing in early 2009. Those wanting to take their skills to the next level should stay tuned for details.)
