Dr. Knight and the staff at True North Chiropractic & Wellness Center have made it their mission to provide quality treatments for all. That commitment includes providing specialized help for autistic and broad spectrum children. Dr. Knight offers an effective treatment called the OTZ method, a revolutionary way to help reduce the unique challenges autistic children. With the OTZ treatment autistic and broad spectrum children may enjoy a higher quality of life.

What is OTZ?
The OTZ technique focuses on realigning the base of a patient’s skull with the first vertebrae. When misaligned, normal functions such as breathing and sleeping suffer in quality. A concern for anyone, those on the autism spectrum disorder may experience more severe effects. The OTZ adjustment offers relief to the area and can provide help for autistic children in a variety of ways.

Dr. Knight was taught this method by the world renowned chiropractor who developed the adjustment procedure, Dr. Francis Murphey of Dallas, Texas. Currently Dr. Knight is the only chiropractor in Utah specialized to administer the OTZ method.

How Does OTZ Help Autistic Children?
Once adjusted properly, your child will breathe better and relax more effectively. This technique helps calm the natural fight-or-flight response, typically heightened in children with autism. He or she will enjoy a more calmer, peaceful mood. It also aids in digestive function and concentration. It is not a cure for autism, but does provide relief and support for autistic and broad spectrum children.

What Do Parents Have to Say?
The parents who come in seeking help for their autistic children are pleased with the outcome the OTZ method provides. Their autistic child may suffer from problems such as restless sleep, anxiety, sensory sensitivity, and behavioral issues, but find relief through the OTZ technique. Relief can come as soon as the first adjustment and is needed less frequently as treatments continue.

Some of the benefits noted by parents of autistic children receiving treatment are:

  • Better quality sleep
  • Reduced restlessness
  • Increased desire for social interaction
  • Improved mood
  • Increased focus
  • Overall improved school performance
  • Relief from digestive issues
  • Enhanced motor skills

The OTZ technique is a valuable tool, esteemed by parents, used to help autistic and broad spectrum children function at their highest potential. One mother appreciated the empowerment it gave her son in learning how to understand and read his own body. He is now able to advocate for himself and tell his mom when he needs another adjustment. Putting that power in his hands has given him the confidence that these special children often lack.
