Did you know that about 65% of neurological development occurs in your child’s first year of life? A child’s nervous system controls all aspects of their development. This is why us at CHIRO FOR MOMS are so passionate about caring for kiddos in our clinic - we want to ensure your baby has optimal nerve function during their most critical period of development! We as chiropractors are trained to look for disturbances in their nervous system that interfere with healthy growth and development.  There are many common symptoms found in children that can be alleviated through chiropractic care. These include:

-difficulty latching/breastfeeding issues

-neurological developmental milestones

-colic

-acid reflux/frequent spitting up

-torticollis 

-sleeping issues

-plagiocephaly (misshapen head)

-constipation/gassiness

-ear infections

-bedwetting

-behavioral/attention issues

-weakened immune function (ex. Allergies, asthma)

Birth is tough work for both mom and baby. Dr. Viola Fymann, an osteopathic doctor studied more than 1500 babies across an 8 year period.  The study concluded that 90% of newborns suffered the effects of birth trauma. This is why it is so crucial to get your child evaluated by a chiropractor - since 65% of neurological development occurs during this first year. Birth in its many different forms may be quite traumatic, causing some sort of strain to the baby. Researcher G. Gutmann wrote, “The trauma from the birth process remains under-publicized and therefore significant under-treated problem.”

So what can cause birth trauma in infants?

  1. Very short/long labor
  2. Failure of cervix to dilate
  3. Use of pitocin, pain medication, forceps, or vacuum extraction
  4. C-section due to lack of progress
  5. Pulling/twisting of infant’s head to delivery infant’s body
  6. Restricted maternal birthing positions 

If left uncorrected, this trauma will continue to impact the infant throughout development which will in turn reduce the healthy function of the nervous system. This then leads to many health problems such as nursing difficulties, sleep disturbances, colic, and other common conditions later in life that are stated above. 

If your baby’s spine stays imbalanced, it will put tension on their nervous system. Tension on their nervous system looks like this:

-difficulty latching/breastfeeding issues

-neurological developmental milestones

-colic

-acid reflux/frequent spitting up

-torticollis 

-sleeping issues

-plagiocephaly (misshapen head)

-constipation/gassiness

-ear infections

-bedwetting

-behavioral/attention issues

-weakened immune function (ex. Allergies, asthma)

Chiropractic care can help children of ALL ages! Chiropractic is a vital, very safe and effective form of health care. Chiropractors who care for infants use very specific, gentle adjustments that do not involve the “cracking” that most people correlate with chiropractic adjustments. Most infants sleep, have a bowel movement, or smile during adjustments while older kiddos are able to play throughout their adjustments. 

 If you have any concerns about your own child or they are presenting with any of the above symptoms, book an appointment with us to have your child assessed! We have a special KIDZ CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT option. 

If your child is a first time patient and you have a client portal already, please email us your child’s name at : team@chiroformoms.com so we can add them into our system. They will then be linked to your portal so you can schedule appointments for them. If you are simply scheduling an appointment for your child, you can use your email address to create an account for them under our schedule tab. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
