Why Would an Infant Need Chiropractic Treatments?
Often a patient or parent will wonder why an infant could possibly need chiropractic treatment when they are so young. The answer is there are many contributing factors as to why an infant may be suffering from a spinal misalignment, with the most common being the birthing process. As one could imagine the birthing process is an extremely traumatic experience for both mother and child. The amount of force that is put on an infant’s head and neck during birth can have lasting negative effects on the health and wellness of a newborn baby.
Things like the pressure on the child’s head or neck as they pass through the birth canal or a doctor pulling on a child during a Caesarean section can contribute to early spinal misalignments in infants.
If infant spinal misalignments are left untreated they can have serious long term effects on a child. It’s not uncommon for untreated infant spinal misalignments to cause serious spinal development issues as a child ages, and in more serious cases can costly and painful corrective treatments or procedures.
