Many people wonder why you would need to take a child to a chiropractor, let alone a newborn baby. It's a good question, but it must be said that your baby is not brand new when it is born; in fact it has been developing in the mother's womb for around 9 months. It may well be cramped up inside depending on how much room and how much amniotic fluid was in the womb.
The mother may even remember feeling her child sitting on her hip or in an awkward position whilst in utero. These internal environmental factors can all have an effect on your baby's spine and nervous system.
Then it all happens, the birthing process. This is a very important process in the development of the health of each baby; however it can be a very traumatic event and as such it can affect your baby's spine.
Most Newborns and infants are brought by their parents to us due to pain behaviours such as inconsolable crying and settling issues, or for movement restrictions in the neck or simply for a post birth check up

Some common indicators that there may be a problem are for example, a preference for your baby to face and sleep one way or reduced arm range of motion such as when dressing overhead.
As your baby grows into an exploring toddler, there will be many falls, bumps and knocks that can also compromise their function. As such, many parents are choosing to have their children checked periodically by chiropractors for babies.
