Journal J Pediatr Matern & Fam Health - Chiropr. 2021 Jun;2021():46-52
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of an infant with breastfeeding difficulties.

Clinical Features: A 9-day-old female with a history of birth trauma presented for care with breastfeeding difficulties and concomitant failure to gain weight. Consultation with a lactation consultant ultimately led to recommendation of a nipple shield to reduce the pain of breastfeeding.

Interventions and Outcomes: The patient was cared for with Diversified Technique (i.e., touch and hold) with adjustment to the atlas and sacrum along with cranial adjustments. Following the first visit, the infant attended four visits in two weeks followed by twice per week. Each visit resulted in more comfortable breastfeeding for both mother/infant dyad. An increase in weight gain was recorded by the parents.

Conclusion:  The chiropractic care of an infant with breastfeeding difficulties was described with successful outcomes. We support documentation of the benefits of chiropractic care in similar patients to inform clinical care and research.
