Objective: To describe the chiropractic care of an infant suffering from GERD, infantile colic, and failure to thrive.

Her symptoms progressively worsened without known palliative or provocative factors. The infant’s pediatrician prescribed Zantac, Prilosec and Pepsin that were ineffective.

Intervention and Outcome: Chiropractic care utilizing the Kale Upper Cervical Specific Protocol was instituted with resolution of GERD, infantile colic and FTT.

Conclusion: This case report provides supporting evidence on the successful chiropractic care of an infant suffering from GERD, infantile colic and failure to thrive. We encourage continued documentation of similar cases in the scientific literature.
