Infant Adjustments from Your Montgomery Chiropractor
The spine is one of the most important structures in the human body. It gives us the framework that the rest of our body hangs on and also protects the spinal cord and all the nerves it encompasses. When something is off with the spine it can affect the entire nervous system, and thus, impact the entire body. While most people think about chiropractic care as something tailored towards adults, children and even infants can benefit from a visit to the local chiropractor.
Chiropractors and Babies
When it comes to infant chiropractic adjustments, a chiropractor will be able to help your baby stay healthy and happy. Babies cannot communicate well, so when they hurt or are uncomfortable, they cry. Spinal issues in babies can be common and can cause pain and discomfort, so when a chiropractor does a spinal adjustment, it helps them feel more comfortable. This, in turn, can help them be happier, less fussy, better eaters, better sleepers, and be overall healthier, all thanks to infant adjustments done by the hands of a skilled chiropractor.
Benefits of Infant Adjustments
Evidence suggests that chiropractic adjustments help regulate the communication between the brain and the rest of the body, thus improving mental and physical development. Ensuring that the nervous system is not compromised in any way by addressing any spinal issues that are present can help with common issues such as breastfeeding problems, excessive crying, gas and colic, sleep issues, general irritability, delays in crawling, immune system problems, and so much more!
Is Chiropractic Care Safe for Babies?
It is natural for parents to be a little apprehensive about having a chiropractor do an adjustment on their infant. Most people’s experience with a chiropractor involved popping of the back and deep tissue massages. However, the same approach is not taken when it comes to infant adjustments. Instead, adjustments for babies are gentle and look much different. In fact, most babies barely even notice anything is being done. It is a safe, non-invasive procedure and is medication-free.
Why Would My Baby Need to See a Chiropractor?
Many parents who come to our Montgomery office here at Kane and Kendall Spine Management have one question they want to have answered, and it is this: Why would I need to have my baby get an adjustment?
Most people invasion a trip to the chiropractor as a follow up to a major injury or as part of the recovery process after surgery. However, the process of birth can be traumatic at times and even a more natural and normal delivery can still affect your baby’s spine. A difficult pregnancy or complicated delivery can have an even greater effect. Infant adjustments and plain-field chiropractic care can help ensure your baby gets the best possible start in life!
