It’s natural for parents, especially first-time parents, to question (or fear) the chiropractor for their babies. As adults that have been to the chiropractor, we know adjustments can mean a lot of cracking and pressure. But chiropractors are trained to work on patients of all ages. Chiropractors do not take the same approach for babies as they do adults.
Everything humans do stems from neurological development. A lot of problems parents will experience with newborns are symptoms of a neurological imbalance. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to help newborn babies and infants adjust to life outside the womb. If you need a reason for your baby to visit the chiropractor, here are some signs he/she could benefit from an adjustment.
Babies could benefit from an adjustment if they have:
- Acid Reflux
- Arching back
- Chronic ear infections
- Difficulty Latching
- Head Tilting
Newborn babies run completely innately and instinctively after birth. Babies express what they want, when they need it, with a simple cry. While parents start to pick up on hungry, dirty diaper and sleepy cues, what happens when feeding, changing and rocking are not working?
