ACA Webinar: Chiropractic Co-Management of Infants with Suboptimal Breastfeeding: Clinical Rationale, State of Research and Patient Co-Management

Event date: 12/11/2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Export event

From a public health perspective, breastfeeding has a strong positive impact on both infant
and maternal health. Studies now show chiropractic care may help improve a baby’s
ability to breastfeed. This class will empower doctors of chiropractic to effectively manage
infant patients with suboptimal breastfeeding.

Dr. Hewitt will describe the benefits of breastfeeding to both mother and baby. Current
medical management of suboptimal breastfeeding will be discussed, as will the clinical
rational for chiropractic co-management, with emphasis on spinal joint dysfunction and its
effects on the involved tissues and systems. The latest research evidence in this area will
be discussed. Elements of the history and physical examination relevant to dysfunctional
breastfeeding will be highlighted. Dr. Hewitt will detail patient management including
manual therapy techniques, frequency of care, and prognosis. Dr. Hewitt will pepper her
instruction with clinical pearls from her 30 years of experience in pediatric practice.
