River Shores Chiropractic | Patient Success Stories

Autism and Chiropractic


Life before River Shores Chiropractic was much different for our family. My daughter, Paige, has severe autism and many sensory problems. Before chiropractic, we were not able to take her places, play outside, or even hug her. Sounds, lights, and touch were too much for her to handle. She struggled to sleep, relax, had a weak immune system and experienced digestive problems. We discovered River Shores Chiropractic on Facebook and I attended two events they held. I was hopeful that this could help our daughter. Paige has come a long way with the help of River Shores. She has improved so much with her sensory struggles. Now, we are able to go places, play outside, travel, and hug her! The feeling I get now being able to touch and hug my daughter is incredible. Her vocabulary has expanded, she is not sick nearly as often and she is calm and relaxed. Previously, she was very tense and on high guard. It has been wonderful to see all of the improvements in her. Before River Shores, I would wake up and not know what the day would hold. I would pray that we would have a good day and wondered what challenges we would experience. Now, I go to bed and wake up knowing it is going to be a great day! My daughter is now happier, healthier, and thriving with the help of the Doctors and staff at River Shores. Our family cannot wait to continue to watch her improve!
autism and chiropracticOur son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in April 2015, and we began our visits with Dr. Krysti and Dr. Andrea the following month. Before his chiropractic treatment, he was very withdrawn. He is nonverbal, and did not exhibit any social skills, provided very little eye contact, had a great deal of sensory meltdowns, and had extreme challenges participating appropriately both in a school setting and in the community.After the first few weeks of adjustments, we noticed a positive change. He had increased engagement and interaction with family members, and became very affectionate. He began to make eye contact with others and his sensory meltdowns diminished.Skip ahead one full year, and he is a completely different child. He is highly engaged with all of his family members, provides great eye contact, follows directions, and has very little problem behavior at school and on outings in the community. He has a great sense of humor, plays well with his sister and cousins, and has taken more interest in engaging with his peers. His chiropractic care has dramatically improved his quality of life and our family is so grateful for the exceptional Doctors and staff at River Shores.

Logan’s mother notes: “In about 2 months, Logan’s vocabulary has exploded. He engages us in group games and loves to show me things now. In 5 years, this is the first time we have enjoyed sitting and reading books together. His Grandma’s have cried witnessing the changes when going 2-4 weeks without a visit with Logan!”
