today we had a follow-up and she was out again. so he gave her another adjustment— it appeared something went wrong when he adjusted her neck, with the drop board. he had to do it twice, and the second time she just started wailing. that didn't happen the first visit. she stopped crying, he checked her, said she was aligned and we left. she's been a total wreck since. she just keeps wailing. she's never like this — we lay down to nurse and she just cries. she drifts off to sleep for a few minutes and then sobs. i have her in the wrap now and she's dozing but every few minutes she whimpers and thrashes and cries. she's so restless. i don't know what to do. this is such a stark contrast to how she was after the last visit. earlier today she was fine. i'm wondering if the adjustment hurt her. but i can't imagine he would let us walk out of there if something wasn't right.
i'm at a loss.

If you are comfortable waiting, I'd go back to the chiro and maybe ask for xrays or an opinion without an adjustment and possibly ask for him to not use the drop again. If you aren't comfortable with that then I would see a doctor and if you aren't comfortable with the chiro find a new one. We had one that specialized in children and infants. My kids were adjusted a lot as babes and I don't remember that happening.
Hopefully she is okay!

I would have the chiro check it out.
My boys never had the drop when they were that little.
Just the little gun puncher (have no idea what it is called).
they used the drop (it's a little tiny pediatric one the chiro hangs around their neck) at her first adjustment and it seemed very gentle and effective, and didn't phase dd at all. but the chiro we saw today said they wouldn't use it on her anymore.
