Infants / Baby Chiropractors
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 when born. It may well be cramped up inside depending on how much room and how much amniotic fluid there is.
Mum 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 is a very traumatic event and as such can affect your baby's spine.
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 to give their kids the best chance at growth and development. Our aim is to maximize your child's function
