Many people think that the best time to go see a chiropractor is when they have back pain. However, the best time to begin having your spine checked by a chiropractor is soon after birth! Chiropractic care is about more than just pain, it is about removing nerve interference so the body can function properly and be healthy! Whether it is a natural delivery, or c-section, the birth process is strenuous for both mom and baby, including putting strain on the spine. It is very common for babies’ spines to become misaligned, leading to nerve interference (subluxation) during the birth process. Untreated subluxations in babies can lead to symptoms like colic, reflux, constipation, excessive fussiness, and more. It is important to have regular spinal checks as the child grows up, to prevent and address any potential problems that could become worse later in life. Chiropractic is safe for children and babies. It helps their nervous systems to function properly which promotes well-being and overall health.
