History: A 12 year old boy, since the age of three, has had "non-stop sinus infections every 2-3 months." Antibiotics were used to control the infections and previous surgeries included removal of the tonsils and adenoids at age 3.
Examination: Among the findings were: decreased cervical range of motion, motion palpation found C-2, C-7, T-3, T-5, T-8 and right ilium fixations.
Patient Progress: By the second adjustment, antibiotics were stopped and sinus infection was gone. By the third week of care child was able to carry his head in an upright position. "Both patient and parents are aware of the quality of life that is returning as an apparent result of chiropractic care."
