Today’s Question: “Can Chiropractors adjust newborns? Why should my newborn get adjusted?”

I have heard both of these questions a number of times lately, and for that reason I feel it’s time to highlight this for some of the new moms and dads and/or expecting moms and dads that are seen in this office. “Can Chiropractors adjust newborns?” “Why should my newborn get adjusted?” YES! Even today’s childbirth methods can affect an infant’s spine. Preliminary studies suggest that colic, unusual crying, poor appetite, ear infections, or erratic sleeping habits can be signs of spinal distress. Pediatric adjustments are gentle, but effective! Knowing exactly where to adjust, the doctor applies no more pressure than you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato.

I always suggest getting baby checked out as soon as mom and/or dad get the opportunity. We have seen infants as young as a few days old, and with regular check ups/adjustments parent’s always tell us what a difference they see in their baby’s overall health, mood, sleeping habits, feeding habits, etc …
