Infants and the Need for Chiropractic Care

By Brandi Swieter 

Adults are not the only ones who can benefit from chiropractic care. From birth, infants can receive care from a doctor of chiropractic to help a number of issues. Parents should seek a chiropractor experienced with babies or receive a referral to one from their own chiropractors to ensure the best care possible.

Aligning the Spine After Birth

The difficult process of birth can cause a misalignment of the spine in an infant. The nervous system may also be out of whack. Taking a baby to a chiropractor soon after birth can ensure the spine is in proper alignment and no dysfunction of the nerves are found. Dysfunctions can lead to symptoms of colic, reflux, difficulty sleeping, and more.

Getting A Better Night’s Rest

Many times, a misalignment of the spine and nervous system problems can cause a restless night in infants. To ensure they get a better night’s rest and can sleep more often, taking a baby to the chiropractor is the best solution. Finding joint restrictions within the body and offering a gentle adjustment can be just what a baby needs to feel comfortable and at ease, helping them to fall asleep more easily.

Easing Illness

Chiropractic care can help the immune system. Babies who regularly suffer from sickness or even earaches can use chiropractic care as a way to ease symptoms and experience relief. The nervous system runs along the spine, so getting a gentle manipulation can help to release disease-fighting agents that will fight off bad cells within the body.

Soothing Symptoms of Colic

Colic leaves many babies crying for hours with no apparent reason found by the parents. Nothing mom or dad does seems to ease the baby’s struggles or quiet their cries. Colic can be hard on a baby’s tiny body and stressful to the system. To soothe symptoms, parents should bring their babies to the chiropractor. An adjustment can stimulate nerve flow and help gas pass through. Gas is a common complaint parents notice in their infants.

Infants can benefit greatly from chiropractic care. Discuss the gentle manipulation techniques and other options with a doctor at The Joint Chiropractic and see what advice they offer for getting your baby to be happy and healthy. A happy baby is a happy parent and chiropractic care can be the first step toward easing symptoms and improving overall well-being.
