  Title Resolution of gastroesophageal reflux disease, feeding difficulties, and sleep disturbances in an infant following chiropractic: A case report and review of literature [case report; review]
Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2020 Nov;2020():46-49
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To report on resolution of acid reflux, feeding difficulties, and sleep disturbance in a male infant, undergoing chiropractic care to correct vertebral subluxations.

Clinical Features: A 7-week-old male, born premature and through the trauma of Caesarean section, was referred to the office after recent history of acid reflux, problems with swallowing, difficulty sleeping, problems with latching, spitting up after feeding, gas and a superior gaze.

Interventions & Outcomes: A total of nine chiropractic adjustments over ten visits by means of sustained contact, diversified, and Logan Basic were performed in order to reduce vertebral subluxations in the upper cervical, thoracic, and sacral regions of the spine. This occurred over ten visits, in an eleven-week time frame. Acid reflux, feeding difficulties, and sleep disturbances were resolved by the second adjustment on the third visit.

Conclusions:  The resolution of these health challenges after two adjustments suggests there is a possible connection between them and vertebral subluxation. Research supports the commonality of regurgitation during infancy warranting additional research on gastrointestinal disorders in children and chiropractic.
