Many spinal problems seen in adults can begin as early as birth
Choose a Healthy Start for your family
You may be asking yourself, "why would my newborn need a chiropractor?
The reality is that birth is inevitably the first stressful event in the life of your little one, which alone can cause a disruption in neural communication resulting in subluxations due to the significant amount of force placed on their head and neck during the process. Regardless of how natural a birth may be, newborns are especially susceptible to stress on the bones and nerves leading to conditions or symtoms if left uncorrected. Initially, it may not be apparent, but over time it decreases their bodies ability to react, adapt and heal leading to possible altered growth and development or symptoms in the months or years to come.
65% of neurological development occurs in the first year, therefore, it is imperative to ensure that every newborn has an opportunity to be evaluated by a trained pediatric chiropractor during this critical time of development. To confirm that your child’s body is functioning properly, it is best to have their spine checked as a normal part of their checkups shortly after birth. The immature neuro-musculoskeletal system of newborns makes them extremely susceptible to subluxations. If left uncorrected, the spine develops in that inappropriate position and leads to a chronic dysfunctional state if not corrected over the years.
