Taking your newborn to a chiropractor may not be the first kind of medical help that pops into your head when they are born. However, adjusting your baby could be far more beneficial than you would think.
Consider the birthing process itself, it isn’t an easy welcome to the world. The baby’s body is pushed through a small space causing tensions and strains through their little body. Leaving this trauma settle can cause health risks later in life that could have been prevented with a simple adjustment early on.
On top of this, the baby’s spine lengthens by over 50% in their first year alone. To ensure symmetrical growth, proper alignment and to build the foundation of a healthy back then it is a crucial time to nurture and adjust as the huge changes take place in the child’s body.
A healthy immune system relies on a healthy spine, so having regular chiropractic appointments for your baby could mean fewer visits to other medical professionals. That goes for us parents too. With each spinal adjustment, the body becomes better at releasing disease-fighting cells to areas of the body where they’re needed the most.
