Chiropractic for Infants? Yes!
Imagine as an adult that you are curled-up within a tight thick rubber sack, head down. Now imagine the rubber sack suddenly spasming all around you, as it tries to force you out of the sack through a small opening just in front of your head. Over and over again the sack tightens, until eventually you exit, maybe three hours later…
With each spasm, your head and neck were crammed and compressed as your rear-end and torso were repeatedly forced forward to the unyielding exit.
How do you suppose you would feel after such an ordeal? Probably laid up in bed for days or longer, complaining of headache, back pain and more.
Is it any wonder babies cry on being born? Bright lights! A spank on the rear! Cold air against their warm wet skin. Noise! But what about that harrowing ordeal they just survived? They just survived ramming and jamming their head, neck and upper back against the pubic bone and cervix, for the last three hours (or what ever it turned out to be)!
Many Chiropractic patients bring their infants and children in for this very reason. They realize that birthing is traumatic no matter how smoothly it goes. Irritability. Colic. Sleeplessness. Could those be signs of birth trauma? You bet. Chiropractic for newborns is gentle, safe, effective and logical. Make an appointment with an experienced Chiropractor for your child or grandchild. It’s never too late.
