Since our founding by Dr. Lorraine Golden in 1955, Kentuckiana Children's Center has been a multidisciplinary practice that serves to treat the whole child regardless of the diagnoses with which they present. Many of our kids have multiple comorbidities such as Down's Syndrome and Autism. A team approach is vital, and at Kentuckiana Children's Center we are able to accomplish multiple actions in house that complement the chiropractic adjustment. These treatments include craniosacral therapy, Jin Shin Jyutsu, nutritional counseling, supplementation, custom orthotic shoe inserts (generously donated by Foot Levelers), sensory and movement treatments, transcranial cold laser therapy and a far infrared mat. By having so many approaches in one place, we may reduce stress of treatment. For those chiropractic physicians who do not have multiple therapy options, it is necessary to establish collaborative relationships with outside providers. The chiropractic physician may be the lead, or coach in care, but she/he cannot be the only clinical provider. With autism, a multidisciplinary approach is vital.
