Chiropractic care isn’t just for adults. There are many different reasons that we see babies and children in our office and GERD is one of them. GERD is is a digestive disorder consisting of reflux of gastric contents into the esophagus but is more commonly know as acid reflux. GERD occurs in healthy people of all ages and affects approximately 50% of healthy, full-term newborns. Below is a recent case study that shows the success of chiropractic care on a 3-month old girl suffering from GERD.
A 3-month old girl received chiropractic and cranial care at the request of her mother for symptoms associated with medically-diagnosed GERD. The patient exhibited frequent vomiting, difficulty with breast feeding, interrupted sleep, generalized muscle rigidity, and frequent high-pitched crying. The patient previously received chiropractic care elsewhere as well medically managed with the prescription of Prilosec. The infant’s condition was unaffected by these previous treatments to the point that, according to the patient’s mother, the condition was upsetting the entire family and their day-to-day lives.
The patient responded favorably to care with reduction in frequency of vomiting, improved feeding, decreased muscle rigidity, and decreased of crying. The changes were observed within four patient visits and with total resolution of symptoms within approximately three months of care.
