Why Should a Baby See a Chiropractor?

infant patient and momThere’s a reason babies are born screaming–birth is one of the most traumatic physical experiences of our lives. Research has shown that 95-99% of newborns have spinal misalignments following delivery. By checking infants’ spines for misalignments and removing nerve interference right away with gentle, safe chiropractic adjustments, we can help give them a great start in life.

At Novo Chiropractic Sports & Wellness Center, we adjust babies as young as a few hours old. Dr. Eric Wink at our Belmont office is continuing his chiropractic training and education through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association to provide the care your baby needs to set a great foundation for a healthy life.

The Nervous System and Development

Chiropractic adjustments correct spinal misalignments that cause irritation in the nervous system. When there is nervous system interference, the body and brain don’t communicate with each other as they should, which can impair your baby’s development. With pediatric chiropractic care, we can keep the nervous system operating optimally so your child can develop properly and hit all the appropriate milestones, helping to avoid problems later in life.

Safe Adjustments for Infants

Dr. Eric uses a specific pediatric analysis to locate areas of misalignment and applies sustained contact to the segment to allow the bone to move back where it should be. The pressure used is extremely light–about the same you would use to check a peach for ripeness–and very safe, with no twisting or thrusting.

We get outstanding results with babies suffering from a wide range of common childhood issues, including:

  • Colic
  • Ear infections
  • Reflux
  • Sleep issues
  • Torticollis

Give Your Child the Best Start

When the brain and body connect and communicate properly, your baby’s entire body functions at its highest capacity. Rather than correcting problems later in life, after they’ve had years to accumulate stress in the nervous system, we have the opportunity to create healthy patterns from the outset and build a spine that’s properly aligned. With maintenance care monthly, we can help prevent unhealthy patterns from establishing.
