The journey through the birth canal alone can be stressful on every baby’s neck and spine…you multiply this stress significantly when other birth interventions are employed like C-Sections, forceps or vacuum-extractions. The birth process alone is the most common reason why parents bring their newborns to Clearview for adjustments, BECAUSE parents understand how important it is! If we can get their little spines aligned quickly, we drastically effect their bodies’ ability to function properly. Each one of these little segments of their growing spines effects their nerves, just like yours and mine. If you have a child or grandchild that hasn’t ever had their spine checked, you will never regret getting them checked for subluxation (misalignments in their spine). It makes all the difference in the world.
I adjusted my little boy within 45 minutes of giving birth to him; I’ve attended births where I adjusted the mom during labor then stayed and adjusted the baby just minutes after they were born. In other cases, I’ve been called out to adjust newborns right after birth to help them latch-on during nursing so they can get the all-important colostrum that they desperately need for proper immunity.
Some other critical warning signs that a baby should be checked by at pediatric Chiropractor ASAP are: colic, failure to latch properly when nursing, constant fussiness or inability to relax, keeping their head turned one way or the other, constipation, or ear infections, just to name a few.
