A chiropractic lifestyle offers natural, noninvasive choices and ample benefits for your greater health and well-being. Many parents seek chiropractic care for their children as they have discovered that it offers the family a solid foundation for wellness.
We know that many spinal problems seen in adults began as early as birth and possibly in the womb due to positional issues. Even the most natural birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and developing nerve system. The resulting irritation to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial misalignment can be the cause of many newborn health complaints.
Since significant as well as subtle spinal and cranial traumas can occur at birth, many parents have their newborns checked as soon after birth as possible. For babies and children, stress to the nerve system may present in a variety of ways that can change as the babies grow and develop. Some of these symptoms can appear such as an inability to latch properly and breastfeed effectively, inability or refusal to turn head both directions, poor sleep, developmental delays, digestive issues, headaches, and even ‘growing pains’.
As your infant grows and begins to reach certain developmental ‘milestones’ such as learning to hold up their head, sitting, crawling and learning to walk, we know that all of these activities affect alignment and future development of the spine and nervous system function.
