Case Report Shows Promising Results: Resolution of Constipation in an 8-month-old Child Following Adjustment of Vertebral Subluxation

boy-1424452__180A case report discusses the outcomes of an 8-month-old male patient who presented for chiropractic care with constipation, as published in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health. 

An 8-month-old baby boy was presented with a chief complaint of constipation. At initial consultation, the infant had not made a bowel movement for five days. Increased fluid intake was unsuccessful in resolving his problem.

The patient received chiropractic care. Within a short period of his first adjustment, the infant proceeded to have a very large bowel movement while sitting in his car seat. Two hours later additional bowel movements occurred. The mother also stated that her child was of a much happier disposition.

This case report supports evidence-informed practice in the care of patients through the detection and removal of spinal subluxations and its concomitant salutary effects.
