Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2016 May;15(2):Online access only p 1253-1257
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To discuss the chiropractic diagnosis and management of a non-neuromusculoskeletal condition such as neonatal milk intolerance.

Presenting concerns: A six-day old girl presented with a gastrointestinal disorder, difficulty falling asleep, frequent crying periods and feeding abnormalities. Chiropractic spinal manipulation was the initial treatment.

Intervention and outcomes: The patient received four treatments consisting of chiropractic spinal manipulation over a period of one month. After these treatments, she slept for longer periods of time, her stool was easier to pass, suckling improved but appetite remained variable. She required dietary changes in order to restore a normal feeding pattern and to gain weight.

Conclusion: This case demonstrates the difficulty in differentiating gastrointestinal disorder in neonates. Chiropractic appears to be a supportive treatment to gastrointestinal disorder in facilitating neuromusculoskeletal function.
