What are your thoughts on the following article regarding chiropractic care to treat SPD?  

Two recent studies published in the 2011 edition of the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health showed the benefits of chiropractic on SPD and Autism. In both cases the children were diagnosed with upper cervical subluxation patterns that were thought to have occurred from early childhood traumas. The children also showed signs of neurological imbalance and subluxation in other regions of the spine. Results of their care were startling and would naturally be considered major breakthroughs in the medical model.

Generally I'm pretty wary of chircopracters, probably because I don't know much about it and have no first hand experience.  I was curious if anyone has tried this with their child, or if it's something they have researched.
