Is Chiropractic Care safe for babies?It is natural for parents to fear the Chiropractor for their babies. As adults, getting an adjustment can mean a lot of pressure and cracks. However, Chiropractors do not take the same approach of adjustments for babies as they do adults. Instead, adjustments for babies are gentle and many times will go unnoticed by the baby. It is a non-medicated healthy form of treatment for your child.
Dr. Jonathan Wise of Wise Chiropractic says, "When there is a misalignment of the spine, the nerves that flow out to all of the organs are compromised, so when we do an adjustment we're simply taking pressure, nerve stress, off the spine, so the body can express itself." Chiropractic care has also proven to be safer and more effective than prescription medications and antibiotics.
What are the benefits of Chiropractic Care for Infants?Regular Chiropractic care can help relieve the following in babies:
Chiropractors have discovered that crying babies often have misalignments at the top of the neck, which can be known as subluxation. A common cause of subluxation in newborns occurs during the birthing process. The birthing process can be a rough experience for baby and can result in neck and spinal injuries. This rough birthing experience is a condition known as Traumatic Birth Syndrome. Many symptoms of this condition can be hidden. Therefore, it is very important to take a trip to your local Chiropractor as soon as possible to check your baby for vertebral subluxation.
