Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To present a case study of conservative subluxation-based chiropractic care of an 11-week-old female that presented with a group of symptoms associated with Sandifer syndrome.

Clinical Features: An 11-week-old female presented with a history of reflux, digestive problems, and possible seizures.  Prescription medications included Zantac. Chiropractic analysis and thermography revealed specific patterns of subluxations.  

Intervention & Outcomes: Subluxation-based chiropractic care was performed utilizing the Torque Release Technique® analysis and protocol via the Integrator. Adjustments were delivered specifically at C1, C2, T6, Coccyx and Sacrum accordingly.  The patient showed improved developmental changes, reduction in reflux, and better bowel function and is no longer congested, fidgety or having issues with lying supine.  

Conclusion: This case describes the chiropractic care for a rare syndrome that is associated with a melange of symptoms.  There are few studies in the chiropractic literature on Sandifer syndrome. Additional research is needed on the chiropractic treatment of Sandifer syndrome to raise awareness and treatment of this condition.
