Chiropractic has a long history of success with headaches. [1-3] A newly published, retrospective case study, just published in JMPT, emphasizes the benefits of chiropractic care for infants. [4]

This is a picture of an infant with a headache. This article details the case history of 13 infants (aged from 2 days old to 8.5 months old) who got immediate and dramatic improvements in both symptom reduction and improved feeding behavior immediately after receiving chiropractic care.

This reinforces our appreciation for the fact that
Kids Need Chiropractic, Too!. You will enjoy this large collection of articles by leading pediatric pratitioners.

About the Author:

I was introduced to Chiro.Org in early 1996, where my friend Joe Garolis helped me learn HTML, the "mark-up language" for websites. We have been fortunate that journals like JMPT have given us permission to reproduce some early important articles in Full-Text format. Maintaining the Org website has been, and remains, my favorite hobby.

    Great article. I’m always amazed by how many people think chiropractic care for children is a shocking thing. Guess they think we develop spines after puberty or something.
