Chiropractic Care for Infants and Children
The nervous system in humans is responsible for controlling and coordinating everything in the body, including development and healing. The nervous system controls all other systems: circulatory, digestive, respiratory, immune, and hormonal system. As a result, all aspects of health can be affected by nerve interference. The chiropractic care restores the function of the nervous system, allowing the body to have a greater state of overall well-being. In case you didn’t know, a large part of the neurological development occurs in the first 6 months of life. What does that tell you? We must make sure that every child’s nervous system works properly.
Infants and chiropractic care
The first stress placed on a child’s spinal column occurs during birth. That’s why it’s of an utmost importance to have your newborn checked for subluxation (misalignment) as soon as possible. Both C-section and natural birthing methods can stress the spine and nervous system of an infant. The resulting irritation caused by subluxation can lead to different health complications, like colic, sleep disturbances, breathing problems, and chronic infections. The worst part is that such an injury might not be obvious at first, and if left untreated, might not become apparent for many years. So, in order to ensure that your baby gets a healthy start in life, you must have them checked by a chiropractor.
Is it safe?
It’s normal for new parents to fear the chiropractor for their newborn. However, chiropractors have a totally different approach for babies, so you can rest assured that the adjustments for infants are so gentle that your baby won’t even notice anything.
