Our babies are astonishing and delicate creatures, so when they are in distress it is especially heartbreaking. Although a great number of infant complaints can be traced to common issues such as reflux, hunger or fatigue, a small subset of infant problems may have also be traced to issues of spinal discomfort. Infant chiropractic care, when carefully applied by an experienced chiropractor, may help to resolve these symptoms.
Infants that have been through a birth with complications, including contortion, stretching, twisting and obstructions, may emerge with neck and back problems. Although many of these may resolve on their own within a matter of days, there are some issues that can benefit from gentle adjustments using nothing more than a chiropractor's fingertips.
One of the most popular uses of infant chiropractic care is in the treatment of colic. Studies have found that babies with neck stiffness can be gently restored to a full range of motion, resulting in fewer problems with swallowing and digestion. The result is improved sleep and temperament.
