  Title The chiropractor’s role in the interdisciplinary care of the infant with faltering growth: Two case reports
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2018 Jul;17(2):Online access only p 1456-1461
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Background: this case report identifies chiropractic care as one component in the diversified approach to faltering growth in the infant.

Methods: A literature search was conducted in October 2017 using the journal databases PubMed, Medline, Cochrane Library, Index to chiropractic literature, CINAHL and the AECC library.

Case presentations: Two infants presented separately for care, having not been able to regain their birthweight at three and eight weeks of age, respectively.

Intervention and outcomes: The chiropractic approach was used to address the biomechanical and musculoskeletal problems in the infants. Other professionals were consulted for other aspects of their care.

Discussion: An interdisciplinary team approach was needed to address all of the issues of the faltering growth. Chiropractic care was key to improve the baby’s use of muscles of mastication and to allow for comfort in supine sleep.
