With the birth process becoming more and more an intervening procedure, the chiropractic adjustment becomes even more important to the child's future.
In one study, 1,250 babies were examined five days after birth, 211 of them suffering from vomiting, hyperactivity, and sleeplessness. Subluxations were found in 95% of this group. Although the researchers in this study were MDs, they recognized the power of chiropractic care and these babies were given the spinal care they needed. The authors reported that the spinal adjustment "frequently resulted in immediate quieting, cessation of crying, muscular relaxation, and sleepiness." The authors noted that an unhealthy spine causes "many clinical features from central motor impairment to lower resistance to infections - especially ear, nose, and throat infections".
One wonders, what would have happened to these children if they never had spinal care? A life of antibiotics and other medicines? Sickness?
The authors concluded that chiropractic spinal checkup "should be obligatory after every difficult birth" and any spinal stress "should be ADJUSTED, the success of adjustment overshadows every other type of care".
Give your baby the best possible chance to have a healthy life. A simple checkup now might make a BIG difference for your child(ren) for the rest of their lives.
