Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2019 Oct;2019():Online access only p 105-108
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the positive health outcomes following reduction of vertebral subluxation in three infants with plagiocephaly and related health concerns. Research has suggested that plagiocephaly (skull deformation) in infants is now being linked to developmental delay.

Clinical Features: Three infants under the age of 3-months-old with plagiocephaly had upper cervical and sacral subluxations.

Intervention & Outcomes: All three infants were managed utilizing sustained contact upper cervical adjustments, Logan Basic Technique, and cranial work. In 12 weeks or less of chiropractic adjustments each baby was found to have improvements in symmetry in the cranial bones with associated reduction of other systemic symptoms.

Conclusion:  This case series supports the effectiveness of chiropractic care for infants with plagiocephaly.  More research is needed in this area.
