Oral Apraxia: A Case Study in Chiropractic Management

Case of a five-year-old female diagnosed with oral apraxia (inability to speak) who responded successfully with chiropractic spinal adjustments. Prior to chiropractic care the child could understand spoken language and could respond with sign language but was unable to speak. Specific upper cervical adjustments were given to the Co-C1 and C1-C2 segments. The patient's speech continued to improve.
