  Title Resolution of Breastfeeding Issues with present tethered oral tissues concomitant with chiropractic care: A series of 7 cases [case report]
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2022 October;3(2):11
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Abstract: Objective/Clinical Features: This case series covers seven cases where breastfeeding issues presented with tethered oral ties, both of which improved concomitant with subluxation-based chiropractic care.

Intervention/Outcome: Chiropractic care for the reduction of subluxation was delivered via diversified technique, modified to suit the age, size and tensile strength of the infant, and complemented by dural stretches, and oral soft tissue therapy. Across all cases, improvements in breastfeeding outcomes and/or tethered oral tissues were noted.

Conclusion: While the attending chiropractor makes no claim to fixing oral ties, rather than subluxation-based care may improve neural connection and reduce cervical subluxations resulting in improved oral muscle tone and breastfeeding outcomes. Further research is required.
