When you are dealing with a newborn baby, this child can have various complications during childbirth. These various complications can be as simple as a natural birth, which can lead to their spine getting misaligned. When a child’s spine is misaligned they may develop asthma, they may have digestive problems and difficulty breast-feeding which can hinder their development and worry you. However a chiropractor such as the ones available at Mid Atlantic Spinal Rehab & Chiropractic, may be able to help your child.
Within the first few weeks it is generally determined to be safe for newborns to receive chiropractic care. The chiropractor that you take your child to is going to use soft pressure to realign the child’s spine and restore normal nervous system function and allow the body to heal itself. These adjustments are not painful but your child may cry because they are going to be held in a way that they are not used to. Pediatric chiropractic care can give your child more mobility, enhance bodily functions and help with their immune system.
However if you need more reassurance, we will go in depth about the benefits of taking your child to the chiropractor.
The chiropractor helps to support the physical development of your child.
Because an infant’s body experiences many changes in a very short period of time, this can lead to growing pains, spinal problems, and more. An example of some of the growing pains that your child experiences in a very short period after being born, their lower back and neck curvatures are going to form as they learn to sit or lift their head up. If your child does not have proper alignment of their spine, spinal curvature can develop wrong which may affect how they physically develop later.
Chiropractic care boosts your child’s recovery after birth.
The birthing process is going to affect the nerves in your child’s body, and just like with you and your body, the chiropractor is going to be able to improve pain levels by gentle manipulations in areas that are going to collect nerve problems and ease tension or strain that your child may be feeling. As the spine is aligned, you can be assured there will be no nerve dysfunction that can cause reflux, breathing or sleeping difficulties or even colic symptoms.
It eases colic symptoms.
Chiropractic care is going to help ease colic symptoms which are associated with an underactive or immature gastrointestinal system. Because the system is considered to be immature, it leads to gas buildup and indigestion. This indigestion and gas buildup is going to cause your child to be distressed by the pain and bloating that gas buildup causes.
So if your child is diagnosed with colic by their pediatrician you should see a chiropractor as soon as is feasibly possible for you, because a chiropractor is going to be able to gently manipulate their body to stimulate nerve flow to their small intestines and increase the gastrointestinal maturity.
