  Title The restoration of optimal breastfeeding after chiropractic care in a neonate with breastfeeding difficulties: A case report
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2011 Jun;12(1):873-875
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To present the case of a neonate with breastfeeding difficulties and report how her condition changed following chiropractic care.

Design: A case report.

Clinical features: A 4-week-old neonate with refusal to feed from her mother’s right breast or turn her head to the right presented for chiropractic care.

Intervention and outcome: The neonate was given a chiropractic adjustment and was immediately placed on mother’s right breast, where she fed with no perceived difficulty. A follow-up visit in one week confirmed that resolution was attained.

Conclusions: This case reveals that chiropractic care was followed by an immediate improvement in the breastfeeding of a neonate who refused to feed from her mother’s right breast. Very few studies have been performed or reported on this topic; however, it is this author’s view that further studies should be conducted to explore the importance of the role of chiropractic in the management of infants experiencing suboptimal breastfeeding.
