Chiropractor Thought for the Week: The chiropractor can help you poop!! From the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health, comes a study published on June 7, 2012 following the case of an infant with constipation being helped by chiropractic care. In this case, a 3 week old infant boy was brought to the chiropractor with a chief complaint of constipation. A chiropractic examination was performed which included visual inspection, static and motion palpation. A determination was made that the child had subluxations at both the top and bottom of his spine. The results as reported in the case study noted that the infants improvement was immediate. The authors wrote, "His mother was very excited to report that her child had a bowel movement on the day following his first chiropractic adjustment and following each feeding." The authors also recorded that, "The patient was also able to sleep longer during the night with less wake ups, crying, and general irritability."
