Evidence suggests that trauma during pregnancy, labor and delivery may be a contributing factor to soft tissue and joint restrictions that affect an infant’s inability to latch and effectively transfer milk. How can lactation and medical experts identify the signs of dysfunctional movements that contribute to feeding dysfunction? To what extent can chiropractic care, within a collaborative model, safely and effectively help to correct feeding dysfunction? This session will enable attendees to elicit a more careful history, and to notice often overlooked signs that cannot be resolved with better breastfeeding management, but rather, indicate referral to a pediatric chiropractor.

Learning Objectives:

1. List potential causes and contributing factors of neonatal/ infant head, neck (spine), and soft tissue restrictions as it relates to feeding dysfunction.

2. Describe asymmetries and dysfunctional movements in an infant. This will suggest how body mechanics can be contributing factor to feeding dysfunction.

3. Explain the role, safety and efficacy of chiropractic care for collaborative management and treatment of infants with feeding dysfunction as it relates to their inability to transfer milk.
