Because chiropractic deals directly with allowing the nervous system to function at its highest ability, it is imperative that these children undergo a chiropractic evaluation. For a general overview of misdiagnosis issues for all diseases, see Overview of Misdiagnosis. Sensory input is received from various entities. The vestibular system is responsible for movement and balance. It is the first system to fully develop and should be developed by six months after conception. This system is said to have the most influence on the other sensory systems and on the ability to function in everyday life.

It functions like an air traffic controller, telling each sensation where and when it should take off and where to land. The sensory organs for the vestibular system are located in the inner ear and are largely affected by the nerves associated with vertebral joints in the upper neck. Therefore, if a misalignment (subluxation) of the upper neck is present, it may interfere with the ability of the vestibular system to perform its job effectively. The proprioceptive system is responsible for telling the brain where the body is in space.

However, there are many sensory functions that must work properly in order for one to understand and apply the information that comes through the eyes. Binocular coordination, accommodation, and vertical movement are some of the functions necessary to understand and process visual information. Part of the neurological input for proper accommodation of the eyes comes from the lower cervical spine and upper thoracic spine. Vertebral subluxation of these areas may cause difficulty in focusing on objects or complaints of blurred vision. However, school-aged children rarely realize that they are not seeing things clearly. Therefore, it is necessary to make sure that the lower cervical and upper thoracic regions are clear of any vertebral subluxations. The tactile system receives information from cells in the skin all over our bodies providing information about light touch, pressure, vibration, temperature, and pain.

Feedback from the tactile system contributes to the development of body awareness and motor planning abilities.

Wen: It takes no more time to hear a story than it takes to get tests. Some children are under-responsive to touch and seek out excessive touch sensation in order to satisfy the nervous system’s craving for touch. They may touch everything, appropriate or not, and may appear to be impulsive and distractive. The nervous system must work properly in order for successful integration of the tactile system. This enables us to create a balance so that we know what we are touching is either harmful or dangerous or what touch is satisfying and pleasurable and should be further explored.

Sensory input and sensory integration are essential in order for a child to develop proper motor skills and proper learning skills.
