Abstract/Notes

Objective: To report on the positive health outcomes following chiropractic of an 8 month old boy who experienced birth trauma.

Clinical Features: An 8-month-old male who experienced birth trauma was suffering from vertebral subluxations, GERD, constipation, torticollis, plagiocephaly, developmental delays, and abnormal sleeping patterns after a traumatic delivery. Medical interventions and physical therapy had failed to help.

Interventions and Outcomes: Sustained contacts, high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) adjustments (Diversified Technique) were applied to various spinal segments where vertebral subluxations were present. The patient’s mother reported complete resolution of his GERD, which resulted in him being able to discontinue the use of his prescription medications (Zantac and Prilosec). His sleep dysfunction and constipation resolved and he also had complete resolution of his torticollis achieving full range of motion throughout his cervical spine.  Upon continued chiropractic care the patient began to reach his developmental milestones.

Conclusions: The chiropractic care of a patient with severe gastrointestinal disorders, torticollis, developmental delays, and abnormal sleeping patterns is presented.  Significant improvements and resolutions of the patient’s multiple conditions and symptoms were seen after only two chiropractic visits with complete resolution of his GERD after four visits.  The results of this case study attest to the usefulness and benefits of chiropractic care. Further research is warranted.
