Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of an infant female with a medical diagnosis of strabismus.

Clinical Features: An 18-month-old female with strabismus and a history of surgical care to correct her visual dysfunction is presented. Neurological examination revealed primitive reflexes with Galant’s and Moro retained. No abnormalities were detected with the rooting, palmar, plantar, tonic neck, and Babinski’s reflexes. Pupillary and accommodation reflex were unremarkable. The positions of cardinal gaze revealed difficulties of the left eye with upward movement and abduction. The right eye revealed slowed and awkward movements throughout the entire test. Inspection of the eyes revealed bilateral esotropia.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was cared for with chiropractic spinal adjustments in combination with cranial-sacral therapy with positive outcome. The patient’s strabismus improved as confirmed by ongoing consultations with an ophthalmologist.

Conclusion: This case report provides supporting evidence that infants with strabismus may benefit from chiropractic care.
