Why Your Newborn Will Benefit From Chiropractic

Published January 24th, 2017 by Dr. Markson

There are many things for an expectant mother to think about and the birthing process is usually top of mind. However, most mothers focus on what they need to do to have the baby and prep for the baby. What most mothers don't realize is how traumatic the birthing process can be for the baby.

Squeezing through the birth canal puts an enormous amount of pressure on the baby's spine and cranium. This trauma, if left uncorrected, can affect the function of the baby's nervous system. Now add in procedures such as inducing labor, forceps, and vacuum extractions, it's easy to see how the birth experience is tough on newborns. Even a c-section can cause trauma for your newborn.

So what can you do for your baby?

Get them into the chiropractor as soon after birth as possible. Chiropractic adjustments for newborns are a safe, gentle, and natural way to promote a healthy nervous system for your baby. Chiropractors check for misalignments of the spine and correct them so that your baby can grow and develop properly. You may also notice that your newborn sleeps better too!

Safe, Gentle, and Natural

When we adjust infants, we only use gentle pressure, comparable to testing if a tomato is ripe. After you have finished bringing your beautiful bundle of joy into this world, come in for an adjustment for yourself and your newborn.
