Abstract/Notes

Objective: Breastfeeding an infant has many long- and short-term health benefits. Chiropractic care, as part of a multidisciplinary team, has the potential to assist with biomechanical causes of breastfeeding dysfunction. The purpose of this study was to review the literature and explore what evidence there is to support this theory.

Methods: Database searches were performed (PubMed, MEDLINE, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health, and Index to Chiropractic Literature) and hand searches to identify relevant studies. Inclusion criteria were: written in the English language in a peer-reviewed journal, involving infant human participants and a focus on chiropractic treatment for breastfeeding (dysfunction).

Results: Eleven articles were reviewed: 6 case studies, 3 case series, 1 clinical trial and 1 narrative.

Conclusion: Limited evidence exists to support chiropractic treatment for infants with breastfeeding dysfunction. Of the 6 case studies, 3 case series, and 1 clinical trial found in this report there was a trend toward resolution of breastfeeding issues with chiropractic treatment of biomechanical imbalances. More meticulous, higher evidence studies are needed to provide further evidence of this.
