ABSTRACT: In a clinical setting, 1,000 newborns were observed and treated (ages hour to 21 days), for failure and/or difficulty with breast feeding. In 800 or 80%, birth induced Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction was found to be the cause. In all cases the babies were treated with chiropractic cranial and spinal adjustments, with excellent results in 99% of the cases. This paper discusses the basic clinical findings and related newborn discomforts and associated symptomatology involving other symptoms.
