That’s right, there are plenty of newborns who need chiropractic care without their parents even knowing it.
Though the flexible skeleton of newborns are usually A-okay during the rigors of childbirth, it occasionally can’t withstand forceps, intense and prolonged labor, or abnormal positioning before the child’s pending delivery. Even children born under cesarean section can suffer heavy intrauterine stress to either their spine or cranium.
Prior To Birth
The initial indicator of an infant experiencing physical pain is constant crying. Even amidst a diagnosis of colic, many of these infants are simply crying in pain.
After dietary alterations and other infant pain-relief methods yield no results, it might be time to visit a chiropractor. In fact, chiropractic care can be nothing short of a miracle for many of these sobbing infants.
What Type Of Chiropractor
Many chiropractors are not adept in dealing with newborns, and might not even accept infants as patients. But there are certain chiropractic specialists who have special certifications for delivering chiropractic relief to newborn children.
These chiropractors engage in “non-force” chiropractic care, a method that typically involves knowledge of kinesiology and cranial care. Even if an infant is experiencing pain and is diagnosed as having “colic,” it is relatively common for crying bouts to be no more than an hour apart.
But oftentimes, these infants find immediate relief for as much as 20 hours after just one chiropractic adjustment.
Infants And Their Pain
Most scientists continue to be unsure about whether infants can feel or tolerate pain like older humans can. But many infants are seen to go without crying for much longer periods following proper chiropractic treatment, leading experts to figure they are, in fact, often in pain.
While many examples of chronic pain take decades to do full damage, pinched nerves, twisted spines, or compressed cranial bones of infants are brand new, areas accounting for many of the amazing results seen for newborns following professional chiropractic treatment.
