Infants and Chiropractic Care
DR. SKIP AND DR. JULIE PROVIDE CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR INFANTS, TOO!
How does your baby’s spine lose its natural alignment? Vertebral subluxations have many causes. The major cause of most is actually the birth. The birth process can be very traumatic for an infant. Subluxations associated with birth trauma can cause malfunction in your little ones body resulting in:
- Colic/Acid Reflux
- Latch Issues and Breastfeeding Problems
- Sleeping Issues
- Bed-wetting/Potty training
- Ear infections
- Lowered immune resistance
- And eventually:
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD),
- Chronic ear infections,
- Leg cramping,
and many more conditions
Early childhood problems lend to problems later in life
You might be surprised to learn that most adult problems chiropractors deal with actually have a start in childhood. For example, the growing pains of a 12-year-old boy can become crippling low back and leg pains in adulthood, or the jolly jumpers used by a toddler can cause spinal curvatures (scoliosis) in the adolescent.
The Consequences of Interference
Running through your body is the spinal cord containing billions of nerves that sends messages and information from the brain to every nook and cranny of you. As long as none of these messages are interrupted, your child should have optimal function and the best health possible.
If, however, there is any interference within this information highway, the messages sent by the brain will not reach the part of the body it is intended to reach. As a result, the body starts to work improperly. This interference will often affect the immune system, lower body resistance vulnerable to the stresses on their body internally and externally. The Chiropractors at our clinic are trained to remove these interferences, allowing the body to return to its optimal function. Getting a consultation and adjustment is the first step to life-long healing.
