Newborn & Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Newborn chiropractic care can be extremely valuable considering the amount of stress and trauma that is placed on the baby during birth. Babies go through a dramatic birthing process, which can lead to immediate dysfunction in certain areas such as the head, neck, and rest of the spine.
The use of extremely safe and gentle care can demonstrate immediate improvement in the quality of their health. Studies have also shown that routine newborn chiropractic care may help with breast feeding, torticollis, improved sleep, decreased colic, and numerous other benefits that we'd love to share with you.
More and more parents are seeking chiropractic care not only for themselves, but for their children as well. Many spinal and joint problems that are seen in adults are traced back to the accumulated stress on the body during childhood. Even natural birthing methods can stress an infant’s spine and developing nervous system. The resulting trauma to the nerve system caused by spinal and cranial stress can be the cause of many newborn health complaints or complications. Colic, breathing problems, nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions and chronic infections can often be traced to an over-stressed nerve system.
With significant trauma to the body at birth, many parents have their children evaluated right away. As the infant grows and develops - learning to hold the head up, tummy time, siting, crawling, & walking are all stages that affect spinal development, which are important times to have your child assessed by a Doctor of Chiropractic.
