Chiropractic Care and Children

A comparative study was done by Drs. van Breda in the Journal of Chiropractic Research 1989 which looked at the health status of children raised under the health care models of chiropractic care versus medical care. The study showed, for instance, that 69% of the 'chiropractic' children were otitis media (middle ear infection) free, while only 20% of the medical children were free of ear infections. The chiropractic children were much more likely to have never had an antibiotic prescription and tended to utilize fewer vaccinations. If the chiropractic children did get measles, mumps or rubella, it was reported that the diseases were quite mild compared to those exhibited by their classmates.
