Newborn + Chiropractic Therapy
Written on July 22, 2005 by Kevin.
I am a firm believer in the benefits of chiropractic adjustments. I had the opportunity to get many years of therapy and found it to be very helpful. The overall feeling I had was much better during that period. The topic though relates to newborns and the benefits of chiropractic therapy. I have seen many newborns go into my old chiropractors office and get adjusted and many of them appeared much happier.
The babies skull and spine are exposed to injury as it is forced through the birth canal. The birth process are also capably of disturbing the normal function of upper cervical spinal segments. An untreated spine can interfere with normal function of the nervous system and may cause serious health issues through the child's life. Below are some signs that your child may benefit from a chiropractic doctor.
