  Title Resolution of vomiting in a 9-month-old following chiropractic care [case report]
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2011 Jun;12(1):865-868
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe how a 9-month-old child with emesis improved after chiropractic spinal adjustments and craniosacral therapy.

Clinical Features: A 9-month-old boy with a history of gagging and projectile vomiting since birth.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient received low-force chiropractic spinal adjustments to his upper cervical spine. There was improvement in his emesis later that night. His symptoms of projectile vomiting occurred once after initial treatment and have not returned during the following 10 months.

Conclusion: This case report suggests there may be a role for the use of chiropractic spinal adjustments for emesis resulting from a hyperactive gag reflex. Controlled studies are necessary to aid our understanding of this finding.

Key Indexing Terms: emesis, chiropractic, spinal manipulation, Logan Basic, Gonstead, Craniosacral Therapy
