I get a lot of questions regarding kids and chiropractic care ... and considering I'm a new mom (hence the fact it's been awhile since our last blog post ;( ), I thought I'd share a few reasons why chiropractic maybe a good choice for infants....
Birth is unavoidably stressful for your little one, which alone can cause a disturbance in the nervous system. Because of this, newborns are especially susceptible to spinal misalignment and stress on the nerves. This may not be apparent initially, but if left uncorrected, it could cause problems in the years to come. If your child’s body is stressed in any way, normal spinal alignment may be lost, and growth and development may be altered. This may show up in many forms, such as scoliosis, pain, asthma, or a digestive disorder. To ensure that your child’s body is functioning properly, it is best to have their spine checked as a normal part of postnatal care with mom. If you have older children who have not had their spines checked, the sooner they are examined the more likely they are to reach their full healthy potential. The earlier spinal subluxations are corrected, the more quickly an individual can begin to enjoy true health.The short of it...
1. they grow upside down for 9months
2. they undergo a lot of trauma during the birthing process (vaginal birth AND cesarean birth)
3. they were confined to small living quarters for 40 weeks gestation
5. Projectile vomiting
6. failure to rotate head both directions
8. fever (not wanting to medicate your infant?? call a chiropractor today)
AND MANY MORE!
