CHIROPRACTIC FOR INFANTS
“I wanted to put my baby on eBay!”
“It’s like I have been given a different baby”
“My baby was a complete monster!”
These are just a few of the comments that we have heard from parents regarding their babies.
At Cambridge Family Chiropractic we see many babies and children and the reason for this is simple. There is one system in the body that is responsible for accurately interpreting the messages from the child’s environment and deciding how their body should adapt to it. This is the nervous system. It is the master control system of growth, repair and the function of every cell, muscle and organ within the body.
This system can often be compromised with the birth process, an unavoidably stressful event; physically, emotionally and chemically.
The nervous system of a newborn baby is particularly susceptible at this time. This may result in the failure of your child’s nervous system to accurately interpret his or her environment so that an inappropriate adaptive response takes place within the body.
When should you have your child checked?
We recommend as soon as possible. If left uncorrected, a birth induced spinal nerve problem may not become apparent for many years! But even if your child is well past infancy, the sooner they are checked the better. It has been shown that negative patterns, just like bad habits (e.g. slouching), if laid down during growth, may persist and limit a child’s potential on a number of levels throughout life.
Chiropractic is not just about relieving pain, it is about getting to the root of the problem. The earlier a problem is dealt with, the better the result; as such we actively encourage parents to have their children’s spines checked.
Many childhood problems can be addressed early, preventing complications during the crucial first years of life. Correction of a child’s spine, which reduces postural, nerve and other stresses in their bodies, can have a powerful effect on many aspects of their lives.
Regardless of the presence of any symptoms, every child deserves to have a healthy spine: Chiropractic can allow a child to achieve their full potential.
