Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2011 Dec;12(2):919-923
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Objective: The purpose of this case report is to describe the clinical presentation and chiropractic management of an infant with congenital myogenic ptosis of the eye.

Clinical Features: A one-month-old female with a history of congenital myogenic ptosis since birth.

Intervention and Outcome: Chiropractic treatment plan consisted of gentle upper cervical chiropractic adjustments and craniosacral therapy administered over an 8-week period.  Partial improvement was seen in eye motion and blinking ability.  This case report is designed to present: (1) proper referral procedures, and (2) to explore whether chiropractic care might benefit an infant prior to implementing surgical intervention, or (3) as an adjunct to surgical procedures.

Conclusion: This case report suggests that chiropractic may provide a complement to traditional treatment options.
