  Title Resolution of infantile colic, torticollis, plagiocephaly and feeding difficulties following subluxation based chiropractic: A case report [case report]
Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2013 Spring;2013(2):Online access only p 24-27
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To discuss the care of a three month old male with colic, congenital torticollis, plagiocephaly and resultant feeding difficulties.

Clinical Features: The three month old male was brought into the clinic by his mother with a history of incessant crying, torticollis, occipital flattening (plagiocephaly) difficulty feeding, abdominal distension, gas and restless sleep.

Interventions and Outcomes: Chiropractic adjustments by means of sustained contact as well as Craniosacral Therapy, were performed aimed at reducing vertebral subluxations in the upper cervical spine. The crying, colic, torticollis and feeding difficulties were resolved by the fourth adjustment.

Conclusion: The resolution of these health challenges in four adjustments suggests there is a possible connection between them and vertebral subluxation. Research supports this possibility that colic and torticollis are related to upper cervical chiropractic adjustments. There is a need for more research to explore the association between vertebral subluxation and these childhood disorders.
