A difficult birth can cause trauma and underlying injury to your newborn’s spine and central nervous system. As your child continues to grow and develop, their spine undergoes various levels of stress as they learn to walk, crawl, play and become involved in sports and activities. Many of these experiences result in interference to the nervous system of your child. Pediatric chiropractic involves gentle, specialized techniques for the tiniest of newborns throughout all stages of childhood to create higher levels of health expression. Benefits of pediatric chiropractic care include optimal brain development, achieving developmental milestones appropriately, a strong immune system, a balanced digestive system, improved sleep, and the prevention of injuries. Babies who may show signs of needing a check up might present with: vomiting/acid reflux, agitation, digestive issues, ear pain/aches, colic, sleeping issues, breast feeding latching issues or a lack reaching developmental markers.
