Title The chiropractic care of a 6-day-old neonate with breast feeding difficulties and breastfeeding jaundice [case report]
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2012 Sep;42(3):108-113
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the care of a newborn with breastfeeding difficulties and jaundice.

Clinical Features: A neonate with difficulty rotating his head and neck and opening of the mouth due to mandibular sway to the left received chiropratic care. The infant was also medically diagnosed with jaundice due to elevated bilirubin levels.

Intervention and outcomes: The patient received soft-tissue manipulation to the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), cranial therapy and spinal manipulative therapy to the upper cervical spine. Following the first treatment visit, the patient was able to suckle from his mother's breast due to minimal deviation of the mandible and ability to rotate his neck towards the left breast.

Conclusion: This case report documents the effectiveness of chiropratic care in addressing TMJ, cervical spine and cranial dysfunctions and possibly breastfeeding jaundice.
