Pre and post-x-ray analysis along with leg length inequality was monitored. Monthly reassessments were performed. The AO group used supine leg check and scanning palpation as objective findings, which indicated when to adjust. The AO group was adjusted up to twice per week as clinically indicated for three months. The ASD Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC) was utilized to objectively measure the patients’ response to care. These authors concluded that AO was more clinically effective than that of Full Spine Diversified technique in their study sample. Both groups showed improvement in 6/7 participants; the AO group showed an average improvement of 32% whereas the Diversified group showed a 19% average improvement. It was noted that two children in the AO group were no longer classified as autistic after the course of care was rendered. Click on the following link to view the full review. Full Article
