Congratulations on your new arrival.
Babies are such a blessing to have and a miracle to watch grow. Capturing their first moments are amazing; their first smile, first laugh, first steps, however, the first misalignment or subluxation is during birth. At the time of birth, the mother has contractions to push the baby out. The baby is also pulled and rotated to help get the shoulders through the birth canal. This causes a misalignment in the upper cervical/neck which causes irritation to the nervous system. This trauma doesn’t even include the use of forceps or vacuum extraction births.
Chiropractic care is the best hope for a child’s nervous system being free from any misalignments and for the child to reach their peak health potential. Dr. Rachel is trained in working with newborns and children.
Children are physically active and experience many types of falls or accidents from daily living and sports.
The nervous system plays an important role in the health and development of a child. The nervous system is protected by the spine and needs to be checked for a subluxation or a bone out of place. It is imperative that their nervous system is working properly. It controls the person the child will grow to be. Although a bandage or a loving kiss fixes many falls, there should still be concern to the unseen part of the injury. Many fall onto their heads and these falls could cause an injury to the neck. If there is interference to the nervous system, it could cause many health concerns such as bed-wetting, ear infections, colic, asthma, constipation, pain and more. Chiropractic care helps keep these falls or accidents from becoming a problem now of in the future.
All children deserve to have their nervous system checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic.
