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.”
