It is essential for babies to get checked by a chiropractor as soon as they are born. Many health challenges that show up in childhood or adulthood can be traced back to structural damage from birth, especially if there was traction used for a C-section, vacuum extraction, or forceps delivery. This can cause a subtle shift in the top bone of the neck. That shift can interfere with the nervous system and disrupt normal childhood development. Chiropractic care for infants is very gentle, we use no more pressure than what you would use to check the ripeness of a tomato. Chiropractic care is also very successful at helping babies with colic, nursing challenges, acid reflux, cranial bone distortion, sleep, torticollis, and better digestion because the body is functioning, adapting, and healing better.
