Chiropractic Care for Infants
Even the Youngest Spines Need Care
I was fortunate enough to adjust my newborn daughter moments after her birth. Subluxation or vertebral joint misalignment occurs in babies too.
Being born is quite the ordeal, for mom and baby, so it’s not unreasonable to acknowledge that the baby’s body has had an equally stressful time entering the world. One study of 5-day-old infants suffering from insomnia, vomiting, and hyperactivity found that 95 percent of them suffered from a spinal subluxation!
As an adult you likely have a preconceived notion that a chiropractic adjustment requires too much force for an infant. However, chiropractic adjustments for infants and even young toddlers is radically different than what you experience as an adult. Our gentle chiropractic adjustments are safe even for these new arrivals, putting the baby on the right course toward a healthier life.
Infants, babies, toddlers, and small children have plenty of opportunities for bumps, spills and falls as they explore their world. Unfortunately, these jolts to the system can cause additional alignment problems. Regular spinal screenings at CHAMP Chiropractic allow for incremental adjustments to keep little bodies on track and help the nervous system to function more efficiently. This, in turn, improves digestive, immune, urinary and other system functions, reducing problems such as:
- Constipation and/or bedwetting issues
- Common infections such as ear infections
Choosing infant chiropractic care can start your child’s life on the best path. However, I’m sure you have more questions. At CHAMP Chiropractic Dr. Stone offers a free consultation. He will talk to you about what infant chiropractic care looks like and can even talk to you before the baby is born.
