The birth process may be one of the most traumatic events of a woman’s life. Whether born by C-section, so-called "natural" birth, vacuum extraction, or forceps delivery, a baby’s spine is stretched and contorted throughout the sometimes-strenuous process.  Birth often damages the delicate spinal cord and nerves, further leading to many newborn health complaints. Colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, ear infections, and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunctions caused by a malfunctioning spine.

Trauma doesn’t end there, though. As babies begin to learn to hold their heads, as they learn to crawl and walk, and as they begin to play, they are open to developing misalignments in their spines. If neglected, the bumps and falls during this period of rapid growth may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life.  This can set the stage for scoliosis, "growing pains," and a weakened immune system.

Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit a child's size, weight, and unique spinal problem.  Parents of children who are regularly adjusted report that their children seem healthier than other children their age and miss fewer school days due to conditions like colds, flu, and ear infections. Although chiropractic care doesn't treat any of those conditions directly, it often revives the body's own inborn healing ability naturally - without drugs or surgery.

To help keep your child healthy, here are a few great complements to chiropractic care that you can do at home:

  • Keep cold water and pre-cut raw vegetables and fruits in the refrigerator for snacking.
  • Throw away processed and junk foods. In fact, don't buy them anymore.
  • Portion family meals and restrict eating to the kitchen or dining room - not in front of the TV.
  • Teach your children relaxation techniques.
  • Help them find outlets for fun and recreation.
  • Build a support network of friends and family members to help them when needed.
  • Get your children involved in community sports and activities.
  • To help your child get a good night’s sleep, get the TV, computer, video games, and cell phone out of your child’s bedroom, and be sure the room is as dark as possible.
  • Toss the harsh chemical cleaners. Use natural products instead.

Many spinal problems seen in adults begin at childhood. Proper spinal alignment is important to better health as it allows the central nervous system to send messages to the entire body during the important rapid growth cycles of life.
