Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of an infant with vacuum extraction induced birth trauma and a diagnosis of infantile colic and acid reflux.

Clinical Features: A 6-week-old infant boy presented with chief complaint of infantile colic, acid reflux, restlessness, inability to relax and/or lay on his back, difficulty sleeping and general irritability. Medical consultation resulted in a diagnosis of acid reflux and infantile colic and labeled as a “high needs baby.”

Conclusion: This case report provides supporting evidence on the effectiveness of chiropractic in children presenting with colic, acid reflux, sleeplessness and irritability. We support further research and documentation in this area of patient care.
